Screaming Eagle 2006
Screaming Eagle is perhaps the most famous California Cult winery of all time and produces one of the most sought-after wines in the world. Sourced from a small, 57-acre vineyard in Oakville, Napa, production of this exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend is supremely limited and older vintages are increasingly rare. The 2006 is composed of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon with lesser parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc and exhibits hallmark purity of intense sweet black fruit and incredible spring flower perfume. Marginally less opulent than other vintages, it allows the more savoury nuances of spices, herbs and crushed rocks to shine through, adding beguiling layers of complexity.
