About Screaming Eagle
The cult wine to end them all, Screaming Eagle is more difficult to come by than water in a desert. Produced in Oakville, California, 500 cases per year are snapped up in the blink of an eye, mostly by members who wait years for a spot on the coveted buyer list.
96 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2010
($750; includes 20% merlot and 3% cabernet franc) Good full, deep ruby. Quite Bordeaux-like on the nose, with notes of bitter cherry, dark chocolate, tobacco, cedar and iron, plus a whiff of aromatic resin. Then opulent on the palate but at the same time juicy, precise and very intensely flavored, with terrific inner-mouth lift to the flavors of currant, spices, brown sugar and pungent minerality. Finishes impressively long, spreading out to saturate the entire palate. Boasts a terrific spine for aging.
