2018 LEVIATHAN CALIFORNIA PROPRIETARY RED

$39.99

Monstrous Red, Modestly Priced- The 2018 Leviathan is an individualistic red wine that’s re-birthed each year to showcase the vintage’s most powerful characteristics. The wine captures the essence of a New World winemaker’s freedom to create a wine outside the bounds of single appellations or classic varietal blends.

Leviathan was created by world-renowned Winemaker Andy Erickson, who made Screaming Eagle from 2005-2010, producing two perfect 100 Point Wines along the way. The blend combines Cabernet Sauvignon with Syrah, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot, sourced from carefully chosen vineyards throughout California.

Amidst the Best Red Wine under $40, it’s easy to see why it continually gets monster scores: with James Suckling 93 Points, cases are highly recommended.

JAMES SUCKLING | 93 POINTS

Tasting Notes, “…Blackberry and asphalt aromas with some violets and rose petals. Medium to full body. Some carbon to the dark fruit. Tasty and delicious. Chewy now, but we like it already. Drinkable now, but will improve with age.” JAMES SUCKLING 93 POINTS

Tasting Notes from Winemaker Andy Erickson, “The Leviathan Red Blend 2018 boasts an intense mix of fresh boysenberry, black cherry, and plum aromatics. Its earthy elements of our rocky northern California hillsides include bay laurel, sage, cedar, and dry red earth, which speak to its origins. Supple and balanced tannins of this rich wine lead to a long savory finish.”
