Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

98+ points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2009 Screaming Eagle is insanely beautiful. It is a relatively open vintage that nevertheless possesses stunning intensity, depth and elegance. Dark red berries, flowers, mint and spices are all woven together beautifully. Layers of fruit build effortlessly to the long, seductive finish. The 2009 continues to flesh out in the glass. All of the elements are in the right place in the drop-dead gorgeous, stunning 2009. A haunting bouquet reminiscent of a great Musigny lingers on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. (Dec 2011)

  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

Deep medium ruby. Aromas of blackberry, licorice and stone show a youthfully medicinal quality. Displays sweet fruit on entry, but this is more like a tightly coiled spring on the mid-palate, conveying a distinctly imploded character today. Densel... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2009 Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
