2010 Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon
______
Oakville, Napa Valley, North Coast, California, USA
________
Tasting Note:
Received a three hour decant and tasted blind. Deep and dark purplish ruby red. Layered nose with anise, cassis, cherries and rich undertone of black fruits as well. Heavy tannins (8/10) and full bodied. A light touch of heat on the palate but not overwhelming. Rich and lush palate with dark spices, blackberries, blue fruits, cinnamon and some dark cocoa. Long and lingering finish. A real treat to finally try a bottle! Drink till 2030.

My very “first flight” with the ultimate Napa cult. Not what I expected - leaner and more crystalline in its purity and allure. Pepper, violet pastille, rosemary. So polished and impeccably crafted.

The 2015 Screaming Eagle is fabulous. Rich and ample on the palate, with soaring aromatics from the Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Ripe red plum, pomegranate, mint, kirsch, lavender and sweet spice notes are beautifully delineated in the glass. In this tasting, the Cabernet-based Screaming Eagle is quite a bit more open and accessible than the Merlot-based The Flight. Even so, it will be years before the 2015 Screaming Eagle is ready to drink. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2018)

Not overrated..... just under appreciated🤗 this isn’t supposed to be a fruit bomb, but rather a benchmark for what I call ‘Precision Wine”. Well done Nick & Armand!

Massive wine. Should improve with bottle age.

Opened way too young. Nice depth and will improve with age, but in no way does it warrant its price and hype.
