International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 132

($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.

This 2003 was showing spectacularly well, and based on my recollection, I think I may have liked it even more than the 2002, which is the reverse of how I felt a decade ago. One of the biggest (14.6% alcohol) wines made by Screaming Eagle during this period, it boasts an opaque ruby/purple color as well as classic, pure, creme de cassis, cedarwood and hints of Asian soy sauce and forest floor notes. The multidimensional aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, silky-textured, opulent, rich, atypically big wine that is impeccably well-balanced. It is just starting to come into its own. Four to five more years in the cellar will prove magical, and this 2003 is one of the candidates for the wine of the vintage. It should last another 20+ years.

Elegant, supple and balanced, with red currant, anise, plum and cedary oak flavors. Clean and refreshing, with supple herb and berry fruit. A classy effort that comes up shy on complexity. 650 cases made.

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).
