Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 94

(bottled in December of 2013): Bright ruby-red. Highly perfumed scents of cassis, musky cigar tobacco and bitter chocolate, lifted by floral and cedar nuances. Youthfully tight today but boasts terrific youthful intensity and lavender lift to its dark berry and cigar box flavors. Broad tannins saturate the palate on the very long back end. Winemaker Nick Gislason uses five "core coopers," seeking a gentle oak influence. A star of the vintage, with a serious structure for mid-term aging.

Made from a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2011 Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon is a sexy, upfront, precociously styled wine exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color as well as lots of licorice, camphor, black currant jam, new oak and spice box characteristics. Dense, rich and impressive, the early drinking charm of the 2011 vintage gives it immediate appeal.

About This Producer


Screaming Eagle is a success story almost without equal and is the definitive "cult" classic of Napa. Founded in 1989 by Jean Philips, it "captures the essence of one great Cabernet site in Oakville." Growing mostly Cabernet, Merlot and Cabernet Franc on its little plot of land, Screaming Eagle produces an averages of 500 cases per year. The majority of that is sold only to members on the notoriously difficult to join mailing list.

Winemaker Heidi Barrett has helped propel this winery into legendary status, utilizing her expertise in showcasing the subtleties of individual vineyards for amazing results. As of 2006 the winemaker is Andy Erickson, who also makes wines for Arietta, Hartwell and Favia.
