Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Made with 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. There is an aromatic intensity and penetration that is truly world-class, and there is incredible balance as well as complexity in these young wines.
Screaming Eagle is one of Napa Valley's smallest wineries. The little stone winery is perched on a rocky hillside in the Oakville Appellation overlooking the vineyard planted in Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The wine is aged in 65% new French oak barrels for almost two years. Annual production is approximately 500 cases with most wine sold directly to consumers via a mailing list. The winery's first release was approximately 200 cases of the 1992 vintage.
