Leviathan California Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

$39.99

Screaming Eagle winemaker's new red!ee      A great new Napa Red from former Screaming Eagle Winemaker Andy Erickson and vineyard manager Anne Favia, Napa's newest superstar winemaking team.  A fantastic value for such pedigree and quality under $50.  Limited. 94 Points Brix26:  "A dark and devastatingly good red blend that is yet another demonstration of Erickson's impressive skill. You may not be able to resist opening a bottle as soon as it arrives. Expressive aromas of coffee bean, smoke, dusty rose and fresh baked black cherry pie jump from the glass. Soft tannins crescendo to intense flavors of dark chocolate, raspberries and cherries. It finishes long with dark fruit character and mouthwatering acidity. While this wine may age gracefully for years to come it is hard to resist now.  62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah, 13% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot." San Franisco Chronicle: " New Cult Wineries to Watch: Leviathan": "If Andy Erickson is normally low key, he's almost mum about this blend...but for his devotees, it's a chance to access the Screaming Eagle winemaker's talents for under $50 - far less than most of his projects, which also include Hartwell and Arietta...features the joint talents of his wife, Annie Favia, one of Napa Valley top viticulturists."

Andy Erickson blends Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Chardonnay, and Grenache Blanc to make a wine with great mouth feel and a constantly evolving palate. Great acidity with honeysuckle, green apple, and apricot. My favorite wine for 2014
