Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Napa Valley 2016  - First Bottle


100 James Suckling -
The subtle and nuanced aromas to this are so enticing with perfumed, floral, blackcurrant and blackberry character. Roses, too. Some lavender. Full-bodied yet so refined and polished with the most transparent and polished texture. Firm and seamless. So beautiful now.

About the Producer

What can we say about Screaming Eagle you don’t already know? Well, here’s a cool anecdote, maybe: back in the day (1988 or so) Jean Phillips (the original SE owner) and Ren Harris (of Paradigm) owned a real estate firm together and their friend Heidi Barrett was helping both of them make wine (Jean literally in a plastic garbage can back then). They would at times each make a 50% contribution of wine and bottle it to GIVE to clients as gifts and as a kind of business card. The label had their names, and the titles “Landbrokers”. We have a bottle of the 1992 in our company cellar -- an incredibly rare and basically priceless wine as the 1992 Screaming Eagle, of course, is a legend that launched 1000 “cult wine” ships! Most of these now rare bottle were probably consumed right away -- hard to imagine these days! So there you go -- fun Screaming Eagle fact of the day!
