Estate Notes

Screaming Eagle, Second Flight 2008 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*. It is in excellent condition and a rare opportunity to taste the super impressive first vintage of Screaming Eagle’s so-called 'second wine' - a great introduction to this Napa Valley cult legend.

Screaming Eagle 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 is history. It is now owned by Stanley Kroenke.

”… emerges from the glass with black cherries, plums, mocha, espresso and chocolate. This is an especially round, rich vintage for Second Flight. All the elements are in the right place.”

“The production of Screaming Eagle has remained between 700-1,000 cases, and a second wine, the Second Flight, includes 520-800 cases.”
