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.
94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2014
(bottled in December of 2013): Bright ruby-red. Highly perfumed scents of cassis, musky cigar tobacco and bitter chocolate, lifted by floral and cedar nuances. Youthfully tight today but boasts terrific youthful intensity and lavender lift to its dark berry and cigar box flavors. Broad tannins saturate the palate on the very long back end. Winemaker Nick Gislason uses five "core coopers," seeking a gentle oak influence. A star of the vintage, with a serious structure for mid-term aging.
