Screaming Eagle, Cabernet Sauvignon--Vintage 2001
3 bottles per lot
SCREAMING E Screaming Eagle is likely Napa Valley's smallest winery. The wine made from one acre of vines, just below Dalla Valle, in a small stone winery in Oakville has captured the hearts and attention of wine collectors across the globe. Available only through the mailing list, the elusive, yet legendary Screaming Eagle reaches extraordinary prices based on its cult following. The vines are Cabernet Sauvignon primarily, but Merlot and Cabernet Franc are blended in small amounts. Property of a Great Lover of California Cult Wines Recently moved from a private home cellar maintaining ideal temperature for fine wine storage Screaming Eagle, Cabernet Sauvignon--Vintage 2001 Napa Valley In original wooden case "The 2001 (only 450 cases) is a blend of 88 Cabernet Sauvignon, 10 Merlot, and 2 Cabernet Franc. Dense purple-colored with a classic nose of black currant liqueur intermixed with licorice, a touch of earth, smoke, and discreet toast, this is a powerful, tannic, dense, young offering revealing Screaming Eagle's classic trademarks of fragrance, purity, nobility, and an extraordinary intensity of black currant fruit in a full-bodied, seamless style. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025+." Robert Parker Wine Advocate #157 (Feb 2005) 3 bottles per lot
