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

2012. Lovely and sublime, but I felt did not (or could not) live up to the hype.

I would like to point out that @Henrik Poulsen and @Kurt-Inge Eklund were not here to taste this wine last night.

#2006 #ScreamingEagle My 1st time tasting this #CultWine & I think it's appropriately named. #Screaming with... Alcohol, Tannins, black & blue fruit, cassis & oak... As if the Eagle swooped down and knocked you over to grab the bottle from your hands. Dark Black/Purple in color. Smokey, brooding, intense. Tobacco, coffee, A definite Food Wine. Not to be taken lightly or sipped on its own. A powerhouse that would benefit from many, many more years in the cellar. Exciting & dangerous like an Eagle... Not for the timid of heart. Don't mess with this chick... She'll take you down! Definitely benefits from decanting. In #2006 #SexyBack by #JustinTimberlake is tipping the charts along with #YoureBeautiful by #JamesBlunt as is #GoldDigger by #KanyeWest & #JamieFoxx .... And I must say... You may need to be a Gold Digger in order to get your hands on this bottle of wine! ;). #Cheers #HappyMonday #ThinkWhileYouDrink #Wino 🍷😎

This was a 2006 and it did not disappoint! I know all the geeks out there and deride the Screamer but I have not had a disappointing bottle and I've had 4 this past year. Structured, concentrated but by no means a fruit bomb...tightly knit and intense focus that is hallmark of this great wine. Still has years to go...contrary to some opinions.
