Leviathan was founded in 2004 by winemaker Andy Erickson, former winemaker of Screaming Eagle Winery. The goal was simple: to create one, unique red wine, drawn from some of the best vineyards in Northern California. The resulting bottling, was born of a passion for blending Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, to create a full bodied wine with a character all of its own. Since then, we have remained true to our goal of producing a rich, distinctly Californian red blend, year after year.

The 2019 Leviathan boasts an intense mix of fresh boysenberry, black cherry, and plum with cocoa powder, allspice, and nutmeg. Its earthy elements of our rocky California hillsides include bay Laurel, sage, cedar, and dry red earth which speaks to its origins. Supple and balanced tannins of this rich wine lead to a long savory finish with hints of graphite and star anise. It is approachable now and built to cellar. 

Blend of: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Petite Syrah, and Cabernet Franc

Very pure fruit this year with ripe raspberries and fresh currants throughout. Full-to medium-bodied with soft, polished tannins and bright, clean fruit. It’s really balanced and the finish and makes you want to drink it. Subtle and vivid fruit at the end. Yet, it can improve with age. Blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot and petite verdot. Drink or hold.

Always a value, the 2019 California Red Wine is a juicy, up-front, undeniably delicious red with plenty of red, black, and blue fruits as well as graphite, leafy herbs, and chalky mineral nuances. Medium to full-bodied, pure, balanced, and seamless, it's a no-brainer purchase to enjoy over the coming 8-10 years at a minimum. Best After 2022

The 2019 Leviathan is a fabulous wine from Andy Erickson. Powerful and flamboyant, but somehow not overdone, the 2019 is packed with inky dark red fruit. Blood orange, spice and floral accents add just enough lift to keep things balanced. I very much like the energy here.

Plush and soft-edged in style, with a gush of warmed cassis, fig and melted licorice notes that give way to a toasty finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Syrah. Drink now through 2023. 12,000 cases made.

Rich in fruit and chocolate flavors, this wine is full-bodied and velvety in texture, due to moderate tannins. Vanilla, maple and blackberry-jam notes dominate the flavors.
