Wine Critic Reviews:

Do you know what you’d wish for if you caught a goldfish? If it’s a home, make sure it has a wine cellar. Because where else would you keep all the 2008 Screaming Eagle bottles? Of course, from the very first moment you try it, you’ll know what you need is more than just a few bottles.

This magical elixir is one of the best liquid wonders Napa Valley has to offer. Its masculine, powerful nose comes with beautiful viola, raspberry and plum aromatics, typical of Cabernet Sauvignon. Let you taste buds dive into the heavenly taste of red cherries and delicious blueberries, with creamy notes and amazing texture that will feel like velvet on your palate and lips. Absolutely sensual feeling, worthy of being called Californian, and at the same time graceful and stunning.

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.
OWC No
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.

  1. combination of freshness and depth, both strong and delicate at the same time
    Product Rating

    You can’t deny the 2008 Screaming Eagle is a truly remarkable wine. It’s got a unique combination of freshness and depth, both strong and delicate at the same time, you can really feel it develop in your mouth. The color is simply stunning, and the aromas, wow… If you’re a fan of berries, this is a wine for you – drink it now or wait for a couple of years, you won’t regret it.

    However, I prefer a bit more acidity in wines, and this one’s a bit too chewy when it comes to tannins, it almost felt like eating jam. Maybe it was the wrong timing, but in matters of taste, there can be no disputes, right? I will make sure to taste it again sometime, I still claim this wine is top-notch.

    We’ve had a bottle of the 2008 Screaming Eagle for quite some time, but we finally decided to open it when we celebrate our 15th anniversary. It was very special for us and we definitely couldn’t have chosen a more exceptional wine to make new memories on this date.
    We had two glasses each and we felt really sorry we didn’t have more of this celestial wine! I really can’t remember I had ever tasted something so smooth, the mouthfeel was so soft, like drinking pure velvet. I think this must be one of the finest Californian wines ever. Everything about it is perfectly balanced, from the beautiful aromas you can sense the moment you uncork the bottle, to the refreshing taste, so elegant and inspiring. I really hope we can get another bottle for some other important occasion.
