Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with exuberant black cherries, black raspberries and blackcurrants with hints of pencil shavings, black pepper, tobacco and forest floor plus a waft of tapenade. Full, firm and grainy, with gorgeous mid-palate generosity and packed with layers of black fruit and savory sparks, it has a rock-solid frame of ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long. Approachable now yet structured to cellar, this seriously affordable, serious California blend should age 15-20 years or more. About 8,000 cases available. - LPB

The 2016 Leviathan offers slightly more purity but is largely cut from the same cloth as the 2015, boasting a deep purple color, tons of blue fruits, some tobacco and earthy notes, and a layered, ripe, sexy, incredibly delicious style. Drink bottles over the coming 7-8 years, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see it keep even longer.

Some firmness and tension gives this interest. A blend of... Soft and juicy red with blackberries, dried fruit and hints of spices. Full and layered with very pretty flavors.

The 2016 Red Wine is another fabulous wine from Andy Erickson's Leviathan label. Grilled herb, leather, licorice, smoke and tobacco build as the 2016 shows off its alluring personality.

Grilled herb, leather, licorice, smoke and tobacco build as the 2016 shows off its alluring personality. Inky and juicy, the 2016 is insanely delicious. If anything, it might be too serious for a wine that is meant to be enjoyed upon release! -- Antonio Galloni
