“Always a great value, the 2018 California Red Wine is a Bordeaux blend put together by Andy Erickson. The wine reveals a ruby/purple hue as well as complex notes of red and black fruits, green tobacco, cedary spice, and spring flowers. These all flow to a medium to full-bodied, elegant wine that offers good overall concentration, seamless tannins, and a great finish. Very much in the style of the 2018 vintage with its more streamlined, elegant style, it’s going to benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age (although it’s far from unapproachable today) and keep for a solid 10-12 years or more. This is one of the more age-worthy examples of this cuvée that I recall."

"Blackberry and asphalt aromas with some violets and rose petals. Medium to full body. Some carbon to the dark fruit. Tasty and delicious. Chewy now, but we like it already. Drinkable now, but will improve with age."
94 and 93 POINTS (free shipping on 4, too!!) and eye-poppingly priced, from the man behind so many Napa cult wines that it’s hard to keep up!
** Major sellout alert on this much-coveted wine today! Just a heads-up!! **
Andy’s resume reads like a wine critic's Napa Top 10 -- Screaming Eagle, Mayacamas, Dalla Valle, Arietta, Favia, on and on. He’s got access to some seriously great grapes from across CA, and LEVIATHAN has been his pound-the-table blockbuster “drinker” for many years now. OUR PRICE is spectacular today --- 94 POINTS, of course, is pretty awesome, and you’ll wish you bought more the moment you taste it!!
The reviews nail it -- irresistible at this price. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Petite Sirah, and Cabernet Franc and a wine you will want to savor every night...just HURRY!!
