When a master winemaker has a palate of the finest fruit at his disposal, he doesn’t make mistakes. Instead, Erickson masterfully crafted a wine that’s meant to throw you back in your chair with pleasure—and the cult winemaker managed to do it in what Antonio Galloni calls a “best value in California.” Touché.

With Erickson’s signature stamp of terroir and polish, Leviathan is going down as the everyman’s cult wine. Get yours while you can.

About the wine

The legendary Andy Erickson has a resume a mile long, and a list of winemaking feats even longer. From guiding Screaming Eagle to Hall of Fame status, he’s worked with Dalla Valle, Ovid, Arietta, and found time to launch his own medal-winning label, Favia. While Erickson is in seemingly everywhere, his wine are not, making this exclusive release a rare treat.

A Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend that combines exclusive Napa vineyards with Amador county’s best Sierra Nevada to make a red that’s far beyond the sum of its parts. As Erickson puts it, “With Leviathan I have complete latitude to create something unique from many different parts.” And the combination of parts from Oakville, Pope Valley, Coombsville, and Amador make Leviathan a snapshot of the glorious 2014 vintage where sunshine and high temperatures brought out the best across the Golden State.

Reviews

4.3 ★ Vivino Users

"Blueberries and black cherries on the nose, very rich. Full bodied, definitely fell the cab but with very smooth tannins. Long finish." - Tim D.

"A distinctive Napa wine." - Neillio

"Great Napa blend" - Aashish P.

97 pts, Thomas Stafford, Certified Sommelier

"A brilliant black plum color that meets a hedonistic but refined nose with macerated blueberries, raspberries, spice box, crafted oak with hints of cedar, cocoa, and burnt sage. This inquisitive palate is in development with nuances of seductive black, blue and red fruits with tons of spice and elegance. All the fruit is outlined nevertheless, a large circumference of balanced tannin, structure, and liveliness endure through the finish.  Drinkable now, but recommend holding on for a few years prior to popping the cork and will be enjoyable over the next decade. Pair with grilled meats, stews and wild mushroom risotto."

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
