Lot #720. Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Packaging: OWC.
Score: 100 AG.
"The 2016 Screaming Eagle is a positively stunning wine. An intense bouquet gives way to a wine of explosive energy and huge textural depth. Graphite, crushed rocks, menthol, sage and dark spice open up gradually in this reticent, brooding Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2016 is a towering, statuesque wine of the very highest level. That is the good news. The slightly less good news is that it will need a number of years in bottle to be at its very best. I wouldn't dream of touching a bottle anytime soon. The 2016 literally does scream, with tons of varietal Cabernet aromatics, flavors and structural drive. In a word: magnificent!" Vinous, Dec 2018
Provenance: The Home State Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $7,000
