Leviathan California Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2017

$39.99

Screaming Eagle winemaker's new red!      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 Robert Parker:  "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." 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."

Winemaker skill shows through here. I have no clue where in California the fruit comes from. Syrah in the blend does it for me!

Definitely fruit forward, smooth, and easy drinking Napa cab blend. I highly recommend this wine to be paired with dark chocolate or a medium rare fillet mignon. This is guilt free drinking under $40 a bottle good times.

New age goodness, rounded fruit, silky mouthfeel, tight finish. A little too new world for me since I prefer pure, robust wines but the excellence of this wine cannot be ignored.
