2016 LEVIATHAN PROPRIETARY RED

$39.99 $39.99

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 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…

Description

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “From winemaker Andy Erickson, the 2016 Leviathan is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Merlot aged in 25% new French oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with exuberant black cherries, black raspberries and blackcurrants with hints of pencil shavings, black pepper, tobacco and forest floor plus a waft of tapenade. Full, firm and grainy, with gorgeous mid-palate generosity and packed with layers of black fruit and savory sparks, it has a rock-solid frame of ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long. Approachable now yet structured to cellar, this seriously affordable, serious California blend should age 15-20 years or more...” 94+ Points
