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.
91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2001
($250) Good medium ruby. Aromas of cassis, redcurrant, cocoa powder and tobacco, with a vegetal trace in the background. Focused and precise in the mouth, with lovely texture and sweetness. Notes of blueberry and tobacco. Finishes juicy and long. With extended aeration, this impeccably made wine showed richer aromas of black raspberry and mocha, and a fatter texture, with strong but harmonious acidity enabling the wine to maintain its shape. Certainly one of the half-dozen strongest cabernet-based wines from this difficult vintage.
