Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2008
Performing much better than it did last year, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 5% Merlot; 680 cases produced) also possesses extraordinary intensity. Fragrant aromas of loamy soil interwoven with classic creme de cassis, incense and licorice are followed by a big, full-bodied, dense, rich, long, slightly more masculine wine than the 2007 with more prominent tannins than in the seamlessly built 2007. The 2008 is another fabulous Cabernet Sauvignon from this magical sector just south of the Oakville Crossroads.
Screaming Eagle is a small winery based in Oakville, California. . The 1992 vintage garnered 99 points from Robert Parker and propelled the brand into instant cult status. The wines are sold by mailing list only. Proprietor Stanley Kroenke Estate Manager Armand de Maigret Winemaker Nick Gislason
