€ 3.865,95 (in Vat)
|Grape||Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc|
|Condition||In OWC of 3|
The consistently beautiful 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dense black/purple color as well as that classic Screaming Eagle nose of creme de cassis, spring flowers, and a hint of licorice. A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot, this beauty should age effortlessly for 20-25 years.
Screaming Eagle’s vineyard has undergone a major replanting (35 acres were replanted in 2006). Today, there are only 15.5 acres of the original plantings that made this property so famous. The potential size of 54 acres will certainly increase production if it all turns out to be as high in quality as what has existed in the past. The superstar winemaking team of Andy Erickson, Michel Rolland, and viticulturist David Abreu has been in charge over recent vintages.

Rustic and chewy, tight and compact, but well-focused, tannic and complex. This is slow to reveal its core of dried currant, mineral, sage and dusty berry fruit, with a long yet taut finish, ending with an edge of pencil lead.
