Estate Notes

Screaming Eagle 2015 is lying in the cellar of our sister company Golden West in San Francisco, and we are pleased to offer this gem of a wine inclusive of shipping to your door*.

Screaming Eagle 2015 is a rare California cult wine, and is one of the Napa's Valley most iconic wines, an absolute legend borne from a fabulous terroir and one of the world's finest winemaking teams.The estate was established by Jean Philips in 1992, making her very first vintage in a plastic rubbish bin from fruit sourced from a gentle, west-facing slope east of the Napa River, where intense heat is tempered by cool afternoon breezes. She took a sample of her her 'homemade' wine to Robert Mondavi, they bottled it and the rest, as they say...

Reviews

“...crushed blackberries, black cherries and wild blueberries with notions of fragrant earth, garrigue, lavender, Sichuan pepper and dried leaves. Medium-bodied with signature elegance and finesse, it’s the incredibly fine, oh-so-pixelated tannins that help to define the signature of this vineyard, beautifully supporting the elegant fruit, finishing with great poise. This is a very sensuous, pensive style and not for those seeking a full-on blockbuster but rather will greatly pleasure lovers of wines with quiet intensity and subtle depth.” eRobertParker.com

“Rich & ample with soaring aromatics...a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Ripe red plum, pomegranate, mint, kirsch, lavender & sweet spice notes are beautifully delineated.” Vinous

"Screaming Eagle has an amazing winemaking team in place, including day to day winemaker Andy Erickson, who is backed up by the globe-trotting Bordelais consultant, Michel Rolland." Robert Parker
