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.
