With a Leviathan sized reputation as one of Napa Valley’s most revered winemakers, Andy Erickson made Screaming Eagle from 2005-2010 producing two perfect 100 Point Wines.


Beyond that, he also assisted in making wine at Harlan Estate as well as crafting wines for Ovid, Arietta, Staglin, Dalla Valle and his own label Favia.

Aiming to create an intriguing, unique red wine, drawn from some of the best vineyards in Northern California, Leviathan is brimming with character. It comes layered with balanced red and black fruits, melded into a round, supple and inviting red blend.

With fruit sourced from 7 different appellations, including Oakville, Coombsville and Carneros, the 2013 blend marries Cabernet Sauvignon with Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

With aromatics as compelling as a mythical Leviathan, the 2013 leaps from the depths with indomitable momentum and is laced with brambly dark fruits, cherry pipe tobacco, cocoa and dark spices. At $39.99/btl, you may want to secure a case or two before this mythical beast vanishes…

From Antonio Galloni’s Vinous, “Andy Erickson’s Leviathan is gorgeous once again in 2013. Plump, juicy and forward, the 2013 packs a serious punch. Still it is impossible not to notice that this year Leviathan is made in a more aromatic, lifted style than in the past, when the wine has been much more bombastic. Readers looking for a supple, exuberant Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine that requires little cellaring should check out the 2013 Leviathan.” 92 Points
