SCREAMING EAGLE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2001
U. 2 X BN.
ONLY 450 CASES WERE MADE OF THIS BLEND OF 88% CABERNET SAUVIGNON, 10% MERLOT AND 2% CABERNET FRANC FROM FORMER PROPRIETOR JEAN PHILLIPS’ VINEYARDS JUST SOUTH OF THE OAKVILLE CROSSROADS. THE SPECTACULAR DENSE BLUE/PURPLE COLOR REMAINS OPAQUE. THE WINE DISPLAYS THE HALLMARK CREME DE CASSIS, FLORAL AND LICORICE NOTES THAT ARE SO PURE, VIVID AND INTENSE, AND WHICH HAVE ALWAYS BEEN PART OF THIS VINEYARD’S CLASSIC TRADEMARK. WITH GREAT PURITY, A FULL-BODIED MOUTHFEEL AND EVEN MORE THICKNESS, POWER AND DENSITY THAN I REMEMBER, THIS WINE HAS PUT ON WEIGHT, DEVELOPED MORE STRUCTURE, AND LOOKS LIKE A CANDIDATE FOR 30 MORE YEARS OF AGING POTENTIAL. THIS IS A BRILLIANT WINE, MUCH IN KEEPING WITH THE LEGENDARY STATUS OF THIS PRODUCER. MAY 2011 WA 99

Fine Wine and Spirits
Waddington’s is the sole and first company in Ontario permitted to provide the sale by auction of fine wine and spirits, under the authority of the LCBO. Waddington’s previously conducted the LCBO’s Vintages Fine Wine and Spirits auctions from 2009 – 2013. The popularity of collecting wine as an investment grows every year. Many wines offered at auction appreciate in value, especially rare and acclaimed vintages, making auctions an excellent way to build a fine wine portfolio. Our auctions also provide an opportunity for collectors to buy wines that aren’t available through other channels and allow restaurants to build world-class wine lists.
