LEVIATHAN RED BLEND 2016 Rated 94+ Points Robert Parker
With a leviathan sized rating to match the wine’s full-bodied, prodigious personality… the only thing that’s not giant about this wine is the price. The blend was thoughtfully created by one of Napa Valley’s most revered winemakers to produce a new wine each year that would perfectly reflect the best qualities of the vintage. It’s authored by Andy Erickson who made Screaming Eagle from 2005-2010 producing two perfect 100 Point Wines. Aiming to create an intriguing, unique red wine, drawn from some of the best vineyards in Northern California, Leviathan has a monstrous core of mystical black and red fruits layered into a flashy and inspiring red blend. Antonio Galloni alerts his readers: “At $40 a bottle, the appropriately named Leviathan is one of the best values in California.”
The Leviathan Red Blend 2016 was built around a core of Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from high-elevation vineyards in the Red Hills and from the backside of Mount Veeder in Sonoma, and was enhanced with Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. With aromatics as compelling as a mythical Leviathan, the 2016 surges from the deep with an indomitable cascade intense blackberry, chocolate covered raspberries, leather, tobacco and spices. At $39.99/btl, you may want to secure a case or two before this mythical beast vanishes…
