Screaming Eagle is one of the Napa's Valley most iconic wines, an absolute legend born from a fabulous terroir and one of the world's finest winemaking teams - and the 2013 vintage will not disappoint - drinking well now, but with many years ahead of it.

“The 2014 Screaming Eagle is an 880-case blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc. The telltale sign of this iconic wine is its extraordinary purity of crème de cassis fruit, which is displayed abundantly in the 2014. It doesn’t quite have the structure and mass of the 2013, but this sexy, up-front, opaque ruby/purple-colored wine is seamlessly constructed, full-bodied, and has a long finish with silky tannins. This seems to float across that palate with that great fruit purity that is a characteristic of Screaming Eagle. Drink it over the next 25+ years.” Robert Parker

“Today, the 2014 Screaming Eagle comes across as dark and imposing, but this is a preliminary blend that according to winemaker Nick Gislason may see the addition of other lots to provide more upper register nuances. Still, there is no shortage of personality or depth here. Plum, lavender and spice meld into the powerful finish. Although it is quite early, the 2014 is just as impressive as the separate lots where when I tasted them in the spring. In particular, I very much like the sense of energy here.” Antonio Galloni
