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 Read more »
