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!
