Leviathan

Leviathan is from the wife and husband team of Annie Favia of Favia wines and Andy Erickson, one of Napa Valley’s star winemakers. Erickson makes wine for Favia’s original enterprise, and for Leviathan, which was started explicitly to make one red blend per vintage. Like some other vintners and winemakers in California who are harkening back to the practice of creating “field blends” of grapes from various vineyards, each Leviathan is a unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Merlot. Robert M. Parker Jr. has called Leviathan a “small, high quality boutique operation” whose 2010s, he said, were “brilliant.” Only a few hundred cases are produced annually.
