What's Kraken?!

Today’s Leviathan Wine Co. 2010 California Red Wine is a dark and foreboding monster of a California wine. This delicious, complex wine is a wonderful blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 21% Syrah and 5% Cabernet Franc.

Leviathan is a winery to watch. Each successive vintage from this emerging winery is better and better. Today’s wine is great and we look forward to more greatness in the years to come.

Robert Parker calls the wine, ”..a lovely, seductive, fleshy wine offering lots of red and black currants, spring flowers and spice box. It is an interesting blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc that should drink well for 10-15 years.”

We offer you this wonderful wine - and we encourage you to get your tentacles on some - before our sale ends.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep, dark, foreboding scarlet at its heart, with an ever so slight reddening at the very edge.

Smell:

Refined and very elegant on the nose, with fresh blackberry, boysenberry, and raspberry mingling with cedarwood, sweet tobacco leaf, espresso bean, clove, and black pepper spice.

Taste:

A bold yet well balanced wine, with fruity notes of red and black currant, candied cherry, and fresh blueberry laid overtop sweet tobacco leaf, sweet oak, anise, clove, cocoa powder, and just a hint of walnut.

Finish:

Robust, lush, and absolutely delicious, the finish is long and lasting, with the dark fruit lingering until the very end, with just a hint of lavender petals at the finale.

Pairing:

A pan seared lamb chop, seasoned with fresh oregano and garlic, served with sauted onions and the drippings from the pan drizzled overtop.
