($500) Good dark red-ruby. Distinctly rocky, mineral-driven aromas of redcurrant and leather. Juicy, suave and delineated, with lovely acid spine and a strong spice character. Not a dense or fleshy wine (fans of sheer size may be underwhelmed) but nicely balanced, pure and long on personality. Finishes with dusty, broad tannins and lovely finesse.

Maybe I am just bitter that I will never get off the wait list, but I have bought several bottles of Screagle second hand and though they are always great, I don't think it lives up to hype or price, especially the recent vintages. Solid wine, but I will spend my thousands elsewhere (e.g. Peter Michael's Les PAvot, Shaeffer, Morlet, Hundred Acre, or Kongsgaard all offer comparable and in some cases much better wines at much lower prices).
