93 points James Suckling: "Lots of black olive, tar and asphalt with black fruit. Medium to full body with firm and linear tannins that run the length of the wine. This is a multi-region blend with a large percent from Sonoma. 56% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot, 13% petite syrah, 7% syrah, 5% petit verdot and 4% cabernet franc. Drink or hold. (11/7/22)"

92 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "A partnership between winemaker Andy Erickson and Huneeus Vintners, the 2020 Leviathan blends 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 13% Petite Sirah, 7% Syrah, 5% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc. Sourced from such diverse regions as Red Hills (Lake County), Coombsville (Napa) and Moon Mountain (Sonoma), it's a bit less dramatic and flamboyant than the 2019 but is still a ripe, plush wine for early drinking. Medium to full-bodied, it boasts mixed berry fruit, vanilla and cedar shadings and a long, corpulent finish. Drink: 2023-2030. (Mar 2023)"

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A step back from recent vintages, the 2020 California Red Wine is nevertheless a fruit-forward, enjoyable effort. Based on 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and smaller amounts of Petite Sirah, Syrah, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc, it has some smoky red and black fruits, a touch of spice and leafy herbs, medium body, some firmer tannins, and outstanding length. Drink it over the coming 4-6 years. Drink: 2023-2029. (Feb 2023)"

90 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2020 Leviathan is terrific. Soft and floral, the 2020 impresses with its open-knit personality and overall appeal. Crushed red berry fruit, spice and floral accents lend brightness. The 2020 is not as opulent as most vintages, but that's not a bad thing at all. If anything, the lighter style is quite appealing. Moreover, the tannins are very nicely balanced. Andy Erickson did a fabulous job with this Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend. Drink: 2023-2027. (Feb 2023)"
