When navigating the enological seas, there are some journeys that require sophisticated instrumentation. Some vintages are fraught with danger, rough seas complicating the voyage. Others are blessed with clear skies, calm seas, and a sense of optimism and adventure. 2012 was one of these bright, hopeful journeys, with load after load of beautiful fruit arriving at port. It was as if one could sail through the night with only the constellations as guide.
This latest offering of Leviathan captures the spirit and flavor of a great California vintage. Dark color, effusive perfume, and rich, long flavors and textures. It is with much anticipation that we wish to share our latest bounty.
