SCREAMING EAGLE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2013 (1) 97+ WA


SCREAMING EAGLE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2013 NAPA VALLEY. THE 2013 SCREAMING EAGLE FLAGSHIP WINE IS A BLEND OF 76% CABERNET SAUVIGNON, 13% MERLOT AND 11% CABERNET FRANC. AS ONE MIGHT EXPECT, THE PURITY OF THE CASSIS, WHICH IS ALWAYS A HALLMARK OF THIS ESTATE AND WINE, IS WELL-DISPLAYED IN THIS BEAUTY. DENSE PURPLE IN COLOR, IT OFFERS UP SOME FLORAL NOTES INTERMIXED WITH DAMP EARTH, BLACKCURRANT JAM, BLACKBERRY AND HINTS OF LICORICE AND INCENSE. THIS REMINDS ME SOMEWHAT OF THE 2010 SCREAMING EAGLE. FULL-BODIED, RICH, BUT PERFECTLY BALANCED, IT’S ANOTHER TERRIFIC EXAMPLE OF THIS ICONIC ESTATE. IT SHOULD DRINK WELL FOR 30 OR MORE YEARS. OCTOBER 2015 97+ WA 1 BT. PER LOT $2,900 - $3,500




Price Realised: $4560
