Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Exhibiting a precociousness out of the gate, but capable of lasting 20-25 years. Deep purple-colored to the rim, with a gorgeously pure nose of creme de cassis with a hint of sweet cherry, licorice, and smoke, this wine is beautifully voluptuous, full-bodied, yet incredibly elegant, with a finish that goes on for close to a minute.

  Screaming Eagle is a small winery based in Oakville, California. The original 57-acre (23 ha) plot was founded in 1986 by former real estate mogul Jean Phillips. Heidi Barret was the original winemaker of the signature wine, predominately Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller percentages of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The 1992 vintage garnered 99 points from Robert Parker and propelled the brand into instant cult status. Supply, meet demand. With only 500 cases in production a year, thousands clamor for spots on the mailing list. The price of a single bottle starts at around $1000, with interstellar auction prices.    In 2006, the winery was sold to NBA officials Charles Banks and Stanley Kroenke, who brought on Andy Erickson (of Dalla Valle, Ovid, Arietta, Favia, and others) as principal winemaker. Parts of the vineyard were replanted under this new management, with more of the Cabernet and less of the other varietals. In 2009, Kroenke became sole proprietor. Nick Gislason took over winemaking duties as of 2011.  Read less

Tasted at work through a panel. It had a stunning nose at the beginning, and I was expecting a great finish but did quite pull through.

Dark, superextracted in fruit, and with oak detailing, the 02 Eagle is drinkable now, due to its soft, creamy mouthfeel. Floods the palate with black cherry, crème de cassis and milk chocolate flavors. Has enough rich tannins and acids to balance a... Wine Enthusiast.
