Wine Critic Reviews:

As impossible as it might seem, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon takes things to another level. An exquisite, celestial bouquet melds into endless layers of fruit as this rich, voluptuous wine blossoms on the palate. Full-bodied and seductive the 2007 conquers all of the senses with its head spinning, beautiful personality.

Sokolin 2007 Screaming Eagle Tasting Notes:

The creative visionaries behind Screaming Eagle have struck gold once again, although we really shouldn't be surprised at this point. Their almost sorcerous mastery over Cabernet Sauvignon has allowed them to overcome any kind of weather-related obstacle that would impede less consistent wineries, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Tasting a Screaming Eagle for the first time is a profoundly thrilling experience, and even veterans may find their knees shaking with pleasure after a re-visit.

On the nose, this Oakville wonder opens up with a stunning, intoxicating bouquet of lush red and blueberries, creme de cassis, blueberry liquor, lead pencil, and a measured dose of warm tobacco. Already you can sense the incredibly ripe fruit profile. The bouquet is complex and fragrant, developing additional scents and traces as the wine unfolds further. By this point, your thirst for wine has reached astronomical heights, and the time has come to take a sip.

If there were one word that could perfectly describe the 2007 Screaming Eagle, it would be "balance." It's incredibly elegant and precise, with exceptional depth of flavor and an astonishing level of purity. The textures form a silken veil behind which, if you look hard enough, you will find nearly endless subtleties and details. If you possess a curious mind, then this Screaming Eagle will be a point of obsession for a while. Enjoy!

Country US: As one of the most prolific and innovative wine regions in the world, America is a joy to explore. Most wine connoisseurs will agree that the nation's finest and most compelling wines are being produced today, which means that we have front-row seats to one of the most inspirational stories in wine history. While other regions tend to focus on specific wine styles and have somewhat strict rules as to which varietals you could grow, areas like California have few such restrictions in place. As a result, creative visionaries behind America's most reputable estates have been able to develop compelling, unique, and innovative styles, with a level of terroir expression that rivals even France's largest giants.

Region California: With a history of wine production that dates back to the 18th century, California currently sits as one of the world's most prolific and reputable wine regions. With an area as vast as California, you can expect a colorful collage of terroir profiles, a series of microclimates, and micro-environments that give the wine a unique, memorable appeal. The region's produce is far from homogenized in that sense, and it would take you countless hours to sample all of it. While the region boasts scars from the Prohibition era, it went through what can only be described as a viticultural Renaissance sometime after the 1960s. At that point, California went from a port-style, sweet wine region to a versatile and compelling competitor on the world market. Today, no matter which way your taste in wine leans, you can find a new favorite producer among California's most talented. Notable sub-regions include legendary names like Napa Valley and Sonoma County, places that any wine lover would die to visit. California's quintessential warm climate allows for incredibly ripe fruit expressions, a style that provides a stark contrast to Old World-inspired, earthy classics. Even where inspiration was clearly taken from staple French appellations, Californian winemakers put their own unique spin on the wine.
Type of Wine California Red: Whether it's Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah or Zinfandel, Californian red wine producers have a lovely habit of taking a varietal and expressing its essence in a unique, never before seen way. From Napa Valley to the regions south of Los Angeles, there's a red for everyone - and it's never too late to start exploring.
Varietal Proprietary Blend: There's a level of mystery and intrigue when it comes to drinking a wine for which you're not fully informed about, and if that sounds like a thrilling idea to you, then you're probably already interested in proprietary blends. While the concept doesn't have a legal definition, it is used to describe blends whose components aren't disclosed by the producer. In many cases, the wine tends to be a Bordeaux-inspired blend, but this isn't always the case.
