Leviathan Cabernet Blend 2021

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. The newly released 2021 is a gentle monster – a gorgeous dark-fruited gem from one of California’s most anticipated vintages in a long time. This one already comes attached to two big scores, a 94-pointer from Jeb Dunnuck and 93 smackers from James Suckling.

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!

Original price was: $50.00.Current price is: $35.00.

94 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
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.

93 Points, James Suckling
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.

From the creative mind and winemaking prowess of Screaming Eagle’s own Andy Erickson and his superstar Vineyard Manager wife, Anne Favia, comes a passion project unlike any other. The goal at Leviathan is to make only one wine a year — the biggest, most unapologetic red in the U.S.  and they do quite well. 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, even in its infancy. We are the first one to score this new vintage.
