Annie Favia (Favia Wines) and Andy Erickson (Screaming Eagle) are arguably the most formidable winemaking pair in the country. A few years back the two had the idea to birth Leviathan– a project centered around making the biggest and best red wine each vintage. Only one wine, nothing held back.
Together using their ample connections and many of the same vineyard locations that go into Favia wines, the two source Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot for each year’s blend. Suffice it say, they absolutely knocked it out of the park.
Big and brash and dark purple in hue, the wine exudes aromas of fresh picked fresh boysenberry, black cherry, and plum with cocoa, violets, sage and even a kiss of cedar. It’s a voluptuous wine with chewy, supple tannins that are actually amazing round and smooth already. Though you can enjoy this big boy right now, this is the kind of BIG RED that could use a little cellar time, but once you pop that cork– you better be ready to go!

Always a good value, the 2021 California Red Wine is no exception and has darker berry fruits, some leafy herb, sage, lavender, and chocolate nuances, full-bodied richness, and a lush, round, seamless style that’s already impossible to resist. This is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon (with plenty of other red varieties), and it should shine for 7-8 years, if not a decade, although I would drink this puppy in its youth.

Blueberries, black berries, and flowers. Some stone. Spearmint and fresh bay leaves. Medium to full body with layers of juicy tannins that are rounded and textured. Creamy and caressing. 65% cabernet sauvignon with cabernet franc, petite sirah, petit verdot and merlot.

WS #4 2019 Wine of the Year, 96 Points, Wine Spectator
2016 was an incredibly special year in Napa Valley. It was essentially the 5th straight vintage of near perfect-conditions and a lot of the big boys produced some of their biggest, most elegant Cabernets to date. Groth’s was still one of the standouts in any group, a deeply concentrated, weighty Cab with sappy, juicy fruit and a carefully intertwined tannic structure. Absolutely gorgeous.
