There are very few wines in the world that have the deserved reputation of Screaming Eagle, it is the Chateau Lafite,Domaine Romanee-Conti, and Vega Sicilia of Napa Valley. Since its inaugural vintage in 1992 it has come to exemplify the very peak of cult California Cabernet. With 100 point scores in 7 different vintages this small production winery (less than 850 cases per year) displays balance, purity, and texture that needs to be tasted to be believed. This wine is not about power; rather it is about elegance and focused refinement.

Vintage 2009. WA98 WS97 
2009 gave winemakers lush, ripe grapes. Fewer than 5 frost events made the vintage uneventful at the beginning for growers. Late spring rains combined with consistent temperatures with only 4 days over 100°F gave the grapes balance allowing for this wine to have stunning intensity while maintaining its elegance. 
 
Vintage 2008. JS97 
2008 was a crazy vintage with intense storms in the New Year. A dry spring prompted the vines to bud early, with a following cool summer and below normal temperatures in September giving the grapes incredible concentration. This low-yielding, high quality vintage has a wonderful balance and depth that leans on the darker slightly heavier side, definitely a wine for those liking a bit more muscle to their wine. 
 
Vintage 2007. WA100 WS98 
2007 began dry and gave a mild summer that gave the famed balance and focus of Screaming Eagle. Robert Parker called this the “most profound Screaming Eagle since 2002 and the 1997.” 

This is a supple and elegant wine that just blows you away with its finesse and style, this earns every point of Wine Advocates 100 point score. An absolute hum-dinger. 

Vintage 2006. WA98 
2006 was a grower’s year with challenging weather including New Year flooding and an almost fortnight long heat-wave in July. The Screaming Eagle is stunning. Filled with verve and energy this wine has a slight more edge than the 2007 or 2009 and is an absolute breath-taking beauty.
