K&L Notes

Winery Notes: "Leviathan is a red blend from legendary winemaker Andy Erickson, the former winemaker for Screaming Eagle. With Leviathan, Andy has the freedom to pursue his passion of crafting one red blend wine sourced from the best regions in California. Every year he coaxes the very best from each of the chosen varietals, regions and vineyards to create one distinct and exceptional red blend. This is winemaking without restrictions. The wine is lush yet powerful with blackberry, currant, dark chocolate and savory herbs with a dense, velvety finish on the palette. Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from Red Hills AVA in Lake County and Moon Mountain AVA in Sonoma. Syrah is from Nimble Vineyard in Dry Creek Valley. Cabernet Franc and Merlot are from the Famed Hudson Vineyard in Carneros."

    This amazing red blend is brought to you by the former winemaker of Screaming Eagle, Andy Erickson. The blend is made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc from some of the best vineyards in Northern California. I get notes of black cherry, currant, dark chocolate and on the finish I get some spicy and toasty tannins. This wine will never disappoint!

    For anyone who loves red blends, the Leviathan is the most consistent, high quality, knock-it-out-of-the-park wine in the store. I first discovered this wine back in 2006, and was gobsmacked at the level of rich, bold fruit that this wine delivers. It has continued to perform well every year since, but the 2016 was a particular stand out. Ripe notes of black cherry, blackberry, and mocha along with hints of smoke and spice, this is one of those wines that you can’t stop drinking. A head-turning wine that stands out from the crowd at its price point, it’s definitely earned its high praise.

    The ultimate crowd pleaser! This is a wine that is purpose built for those with hedonistic vinous tendencies. In other words, it's for you folks out there that just can't get enough rich luscious fruit, exotic oak spices, ripe silky textures and mouth filling flavor. A bold, powerful blend of top notch fruit from across northern California. All of this is then seamlessly woven together by iconic winemaker Andy Erikson who has crafted cult wines such as Screaming Eagle, Harlan, Staglin, Dalla Valle, and Ovid. In 2004 Andy founded Leviathan with the idea of making a truly unrestrained California Red. The founding idea remains true to this day: One Blend - One Focus - Leviathan.
