“Displays intense black fruit with savory aromas of pepper and sage. The palate gives way to an even-keeled expression of cherries, violets, umeboshi, savory tannins and licorice. This is a wine to be enjoyed now and anytime over the next decade.” - California Wine Advisors

“The 2014 Leviathan is a big, juicy wine that will appeal to readers who enjoy flashy, extroverted reds. Copious red cherry jam, red plum, spice, vanilla and oak are pushed forward in this flamboyant, racy Cabernet Sauvignon based red.” - Antonio Galloni

With Leviathan, Andy has the freedom to pursue his passion of crafting one red blend wine sourced from the best regions in California.
