Yosemite Valley from Glacier Point, California, 1908.
The Story

The goal is simple: to produce one singular red wine each vintage. Drawing on vineyard sources across California, Winemaker Andy Erickson looks to create a unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, and Merlot.

Leviathan grew out of the vineyards that are the source of the Favia wines produced by Andy Erickson and Annie Favia.  In 2004, after creating the blends for Favia, Andy started a new blending process using various components from nearly all of their vineyard sources—Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.  Quickly the concept began to take shape:  to create one distinctive red wine per vintage, drawn from all four of these varieties, that would highlight the best of California, and take on a character all its own.  Since then, we have slowly expanded our vineyard sources, remaining true to the goal of producing a rich, delicious red blend every year.

“With all of the other projects I work on, for Favia, as well as for my winemaking clients, the focus is always on producing single vineyard, site-specific wines. With Leviathan I have complete latitude to create something unique from many different parts. It is like a brain-teaser, and very fun and exciting. California is rich and diverse in terms of grape-growing regions, and I love working to create something that reflects the best that California has to offer.”
