Not long after Andy Erickson worked his first harvest at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, he enrolled in an Enology program at UC Davis. During his college studies, he worked at Spottswoode and Saintsbury wineries, which led him into ten years of winemaking for some of Napa Valley’s top estates, including Harlan Estate, Screaming Eagle, and Staglin Family Vineyards.
The Leviathan wine is a red blend created afresh each vintage, sourced from some of the most coveted vineyards in California. Each year, a percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc are blended together to produce a singular wine, showcasing all the best characteristics of the vintage.
The 2020 Leviathan displays powerful aromas of plum, black cherry, cola, and cocoa. Savory spices, white pepper, marjoram, and cardamon derived from our rocky Northern California hillsides expand across the palate. The wine boasts bright and persistent acidity with intense, fine-grained tannins.
Blend: 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 13% Petite Sirah, 7% Syrah, 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc
