From the creative mind and winemaking prowess of Screaming Eagle’s own Andy Erickson, comes a passion project unlike any other. The goal at Leviathan is to make only one wine a year– the biggest red in the U.S. Sourced from some of the best vineyards up and down the coast (you can thank Andy and Screaming Eagle for that), it’s a big, intense wine that will only get better with age, though it’s great right now.

The 2019 Renegade Red is a gorgeous California Red blend that’s plush, silky and juicy and happens to push 15% alc. You never taste it though, it’s well hidden within its rich, juicy texture accented by flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, cedar and cocoa. It finishes long with a hint of spice — a guaranteed crowd pleaser for sure. This is arguably the best rendition yet out of hotspot Paso Robles where it’s connected with a fresh new 94-point score that recognizes it’s immense value in one of the domestic bargains of the year.

“For Bibi Graetz’s 20th anniversary of his beloved Testamatta, the superstar winemaker set out to make something truly age-worthy and spectacular and unlike anything he has made to date. Armed with his brand new, state-of-the-art winemaking facility in Florence, Graetz’s 2019 Testamatta is elegant and pure with multiple layers of depth and evolution. With part of the makeup consisting of vines from the 1950’s, the wine has such sophistication and intrigue and I suspect will continue to evolve into something special over the next three to four decades. ” – Nicholas

The Bisol “Jeio” Prosecco NV is a delicious sparkler that comes from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. A brilliant straw yellow color, the first sip is an intense and fresh nose of citrus fruits and saline sensations. If you love fruit forward sparklers… this one is for you.

A sexy package with a great label leads you off before you’re swooned by a mix of citrus, white peach, and turkish apricots. On the palate, you’re hit with a refreshing sweet and sour combination with incredibly tiny, salty bubbles. This one is a beauty – the definition of a crowd pleaser. Vinous got a hold of it and gave it their highest rating for the category of the vintage, a 91-point score for a wine they deemed, “incredibly pretty and highly likable”. This is going to be the go-to for Melissa this year, I can already tell.

“The Caprili 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is lovely. The wine strikes that great balance of dark fruit, rose and tar that makes Brunello unique, and it doesn’t have those rough edges or stemmy tannins that you see sometimes in this undeniably hot and dry vintage. This expression remains elegant but also generous, and that’s not an easy intersection to reach. This is a standout wine from 2017, despite the challenges and the lower yields obtained this year. “

Can I say for certain this baby is going to wind up on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list this year? Not for certain, I suppose but it definitely follows their formula. This is a lights out new Super Tuscan release from a back vintage that Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate praised for showing the, “exuberance, softness and richness of the vintage”. I’m not at all surprised to see Wine Spectator shower it with a big 96-point score, it is an elite 2015 bottling. A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot — this is a knockout SuperTuscan, that you’ll want to snag a few of the 42 bottles total I have.

“This is really something. There’s purity and focus to the aromas of crushed berries, licorice and black tea, which follow through to an integrated palate of extremely fine, melted tannins that spread to the very ends of the wine. This is all about balance and length. It really is an emotional wine. Great follow-up to the 2017, which was also 100 points. Drinkable now, but better after 2024.” -James Suckling

“This is made from over 100-year-old vineyards and offers blackberries with blue fruit and dark chocolate. Shows bark and black truffle undertones, too. Tight and more focused than in past vintages. The quality of the tannins is more precise and fine. Blackberries and black truffles at the end. Drink or hold.” -James Suckling

The 2015 Edmond de Rothschild “Chateau des Laurets” St. Emilion is something special and even after a barrage of fabulous Bordeaux offers this year, I’m still calling it the Bordeaux of the year. It absolutely dazzles, displaying all the silky, elegant tannins and harmonious nature characteristic of the vintage. Lay some down in a dark cellar for the long haul but don’t be afraid to enjoy some right now.

” The 2016 Château Poesia is more open and showy compared to the Barde Haut, offering fabulous limestone-like character in its kirsch and currant fruits and notes of dried herbs, white truffle, and dried flowers. Possessing medium to full body, ripe, present tannins, terrific concentration, and a great finish, it’s another incredibly classy Saint Emilion from the Garcin-Lévêque family.”

This is an absolutely killer Sparkling Lambrusco Rose that doesn’t taste like what you might expect. It’s got a gorgeous pink hue with a fruity and floral nose, but it doesn’t give off the herbal notes that Lambrusco sometimes does. Instead, it’s a lovely draw expression with fresh, juicy red fruits with a hint of cintrus and minerality. The bubbles are tiny and pure and add a refreshing layer to this fun little number. It comes in a great bottle and whats inside is fantastic. Mom or dad or anybody else will love it.
