94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Based on Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Syrah brought up in 25% new French oak, the 2017 California Red Wine sports a deep ruby/purple color as well as a rich, powerful, opulent style that certainly puts a smile on your face. Notes of currants, chocolate, spice box, and earthy, herbal notes all emerge from this sexy, seamless effort that has full-bodied richness, ripe tannins, and outstanding finish. It’s a smoking value to enjoy over the coming 7-8 years. Drink: 2020-2028. (1/31/20)"

94 points James Suckling: "A rich, very fruity red with mocha, chocolate, plums and terracotta. Full body, round, juicy tannins and a solid, flavorful finish. A blend of syrah, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc. Drink or hold. (2/14/20)"

Producer notes: "Leviathan is a red blend from legendary winemaker Andy Erickson, the former winemaker for Screaming Eagle. With Leviathan, Andy has the freedom to pursue his passion of crafting one red blend wine sourced from the best regions in California. Every year he coaxes the very best from each of the chosen varietals, regions, and vineyards to create one distinct and exceptional red blend. This is winemaking without restrictions."
