Screaming Eagle – One of the Most Legendary, Mythical Wines in the World

If you fancy yourself a knowledgeable wine collector, then you must already know about Screaming Eagle Winery. Founded in 1986, Screaming Eagle quickly became known for wines of astounding quality, heavenly bottles of nectar that bring even the toughest critic to their knees. Their first vintage in 1992 received a score of 99 out of 100 from esteemed critic Robert Parker – a very impressive beginning for a future heavy-hitter. In 1997, they scored that final point, as their wine was deemed perfect. Since then, they have received perfect scores in 1997, 2007, 2010, 2012, 2015 and 2016 proving that the winery has as much longevity and consistent brilliance as their glorious produce.

Those that are unconvinced don’t stay that way for long – a single sampling of a Screaming Eagle wine tells a narrative that is impossible to doubt, eloquently combining flavors and textures to create the ultimate argument in its favor. No one that tries this wine leaves unsatisfied, and it makes an excellent crowning jewel in any collection. The awe-inspiring combination of aromas and tastes comes primarily from the grape selection Screaming Eagle Winery went with. In their current state, the vineyards are planted to 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc – the finest grapes for the finest nectar.

Only around 500-850 cases are produced annually, which makes these wines rare and in high demand. No one gets access to the locations, as Screaming Eagle don’t produce enough to offer tourist tastings. Obtaining a bottle from them demands patience and a very flexible budget, but the reward is worth it, as the flavor of this wine stands as a testament to the incredible power of human ingenuity and passion. The wines don’t hammer their point home – they’re instead focused on playfully stimulating your tastebuds with subtle, complex flavor harmonies, and creating rich, elegant textures that leave your mind and body screaming for more.

2012 Screaming Eagle

The perfect 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Screaming Eagle is composed of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. Made in the classic, iconic Screaming Eagle style that the original proprietress, Jean Philipps, first showcased in the early 1990s, before the winery was sold to Stan Kroenke, the inky/purple-colored, seamless 2012 possesses an extraordinary set of aromatics consisting of pure blackcurrant liqueur, licorice, acacia flowers, graphite and a subtle hint of new oak. Full-bodied, opulent and voluptuous, this profound wine is as prodigious as I thought it would be last year when tasted from barrel. It should age effortlessly for 20 or more years.Robert Parker | 100 RPAnother perfect wine is the 2012 Screaming Eagle which checks in as 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc. While just as good as the 2013, it’s made in a very different style and has a lush, opulent, sexy profile as well as the hallmark crème de cassis, white flowers, graphite and spice. With a silky, full-bodied, seamless texture, incredible complexity, ultra-fine tannin, and blockbuster length, this quintessential Screaming Eagle will continue drinking beautifully for 20-25 years.Jeb Dunnuck | 100 JDThis shows a very compact palate with superb complexity and precision with aromas and flavors ranging from blackberries and black truffles to black tea and wet earth. It’s full-bodied and finely grained with a light, woody complexity underneath it all. Extremely long and persistent on the palate. Drink or hold.James Suckling | 100 JSThe 2012 Screaming Eagle is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. Ripe, flamboyant and opulent to the core, the 2012 races across the palate with stunning depth and pure texture. The flavors are dark, bold and expressive. This is one of the darker, more powerful 2012s readers will come across. Because of the long, temperate growing season, winemaker Nic Gislason opted to wait until mid-October to harvest, very late by the estate’s historical standards. Estate Manager Armand de Maigret told me the 2012 reminds him of the 2007. I don’t quite see that parallel, but it will be interesting to taste both vintages from bottle in a few years to find out.Vinous Media | 95-97 VMA seamless, graceful, ebullient effort that’s pure, even exotic, with dusty blackberry and wild berry flavors at the center. Though the fruit is broad and expressive, this is amazingly refined, supple and persistent overall. Tempting now for the expansive fruit definition, this should only gain over the next decade. Drink now through 2029. 820 cases made.Wine Spectator | 97 WS

2020 screaming eagle California Red

Fabulous aromas of cabernet sauvignon with blackcurrants, blueberries, bark, fresh mushrooms and violets, follow through to a full body with an elegance that builds at the finish, leaving you with a freshness and minerality that goes on for minutes. Unique wine in so many ways. A blend of 76% cabernet sauvignon, 18% merlot and 6% cabernet franc. Best after 2028.James Suckling | 99 JSThe 2020 Screaming Eagle is one of the great surprises of the year. Energetic and vibrant in the glass, the 2020 offers a bit more energy than most readers are likely used to. All the elements are so well balanced. Dark blue/purplish fruit, lavender, menthol, spice, leather and a soft touch of all fill out the layers effortlessly. In 2020 Screaming Eagle is not as immediately alluring as it so often is, so a measure of patience is warranted.Vinous Media | 96 VM
