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. I got it before everybody else – but that also means I got in before the reviews. I’m not worried, I’m sure they’re going to be every bit as big as they usually are.

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!

Expert Reviews

93 Points, James Suckling
Lots of black olive, tar and asphalt with black fruit. Medium to full body with firm and linear tannins that run the length of the wine. This is a multi-region blend with a large percent from Sonoma. 56% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot, 13% petite syrah, 7% syrah, 5% petit verdot and 4% cabernet franc. Drink or hold.
