Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Napa Valley 1996  - First Bottle


98 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
The newly-released 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals lots of structure, an opaque purple color, and the hallmark blackberry and cassis liqueur-like notes. Silky-textured, fabulously-concentrated, and gorgeously-balanced, it has every component part - acidity, alcohol, tannin, and extract - flawlessly presented.

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!
