Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon Enjoy two bottles of 2009 Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley. In 1996, Robert Parker awarded the first-ever vintage of Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon 99 points, and a star was born. Screaming Eagle produces as few as 5,000 to 9,000 bottles each year.
Compliments of Heritage Auctions
Once again, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon pays homage to the 2007, but the aromas and flavors seem to be just a touch brighter, which might just be a function of the wineâ€™s age. A wine of remarkable precision, the 2009 is totally dialed in from start to finish. Layers of intensely sweet, perfumed fruit are woven together with remarkable elegance and sheer polish. A translucent, weightless finish rounds things out in style. The 2009 is 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2019â€“2029.
