Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review Rated 96-98+ The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon may merit a three-digit score if it continues to evolve as it is currently. This blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 3% Cabernet Franc has closed down somewhat, but, wow, is it showing awesome potential! In the past, the hallmark of this wine has always been its extraordinary intensity, purity, and depth of creme de cassis fruit, and this characteristic is again present in the 2007. Additionally, notions of camphor, licorice, and smoke, extraordinary opulence, and a seamless integration of acidity, wood, tannin, and alcohol are all found in this incredibly velvety-textured, full-bodied wine that is elegant as well as substantial in flavor intensity. I can't wait to taste it after a few years in bottle.

  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
