Leviathan 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

As always, our goal with Leviathan is to capture the best of California in every vintage. In 2011, cool temperatures and a long growing season delivered fruit with vibrancy, great color and nuanced aromatic expressions. Upon opening the bottle, notes of Luxardo cherries, olallaberries, rose petals, Teuscher truffles and wet stone exude from the glass. The tannins are firm on entry but, the texture broadens and spreads across the palate. 23 months of barrel aging have rounded the wine and given it a juicy, fruit-forward appeal, with nuances of French oak and a lingering finish that will leave you reaching for glass after glass. Leviathan is a rich, full wine with vibrant texture. Its complex flavors are derived from a unique blend which highlights the best of California -- carefully fine-tuned each vintage to create a bold, rich, enticing wine. Though this uniquely blended wine is worthy of cellaring, it is intended to be consumed in its youth, showcasing its bright, fruit-driven character.

He is best known for taking over duties from Heidi Barrett at Screaming Eagle, the cult winery as known for its quality as it is for its long mailing list and stratospheric auction prices.
