Wine AdvocateFrom winemaker Andy Erickson, the 2015 Leviathan is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Red Hills, Dry Creek and Carneros with Cabernet Franc from Hudson vineyard in Carneros and Syrah from Dry Creek Valley. It was aged in 25% new French oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it offers up a compelling earthy/savory nose of tilled soil, truffles, chargrill and beef drippings with a core of warm black plums, cassis and wild blueberries plus a touch of pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied with a great structure of firm, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, it delivers bags of crunchy fruit and an herbal lift on the finish.
