Screaming Eagle 2003 Red Wine (Oakville)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $500

Ripe and flashy, offering tiers of cassis, chocolate and charry new oak flavors, wrapped in sweet, smooth tannins. Has an acidic bite midpalate that balances the lushness, and will add to the wine’s cellar-worthiness. Defines sheer power, but never loses control. Best now and through 2017, at least.

Screaming Eagle 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon (Oakville)

  1. $300

Dark, superextracted in fruit, and with oak detailing, the ’02 Eagle is drinkable now, due to its soft, creamy mouthfeel. Floods the palate with black cherry, crème de cassis and milk chocolate flavors. Has enough rich tannins and acids to balance and hold through 2010.

Screaming Eagle 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon (Oakville)

  1. $250

The oak certainly screams out, and it’s good oak, freshly hewn and smokily charred. Underneath is superripe fruit, plummy to the point of milk chocolate pudding. This big, heavily extracted Cab is classic Eagle in style.
