Screaming Eagle Tasting – Featuring 3oz Pours
Join us on Wednesday April 21st as we bring you the most sought after wine from Napa Valley, Screaming Eagle! I have been in this business for 14 years and I have never heard of anyone doing a Screaming Eagle tasting before. If they won’t do it, we will.
“Screaming Eagle’s little stone winery is perched on a rocky hillside in the Oakville Appellation overlooking the vineyard planted in Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Annual production is approximately 500 cases with most wine sold directly to consumers via a mailing list. The winery’s first release was approximately 200 cases of the 1992 vintage. It can take around 15 years to get on the mailing list.”
Along with the 100 point 2016 vintage of Screaming Eagle we will also taste 4 other incredible wines listed below.
Seating is very limited, only 14 spots are available and the cost is $450 per person. We will be pouring 3oz pours, so you will get plenty of wine to taste!
Don’t miss your chance to taste the undisputed Cult Wine Champ of Napa Valley. Make your reservation now!

2014 Gaja Alteni Di Brassica, Langhe – $150
95 Points | James Suckling
Vibrant white with lemon zest, stone, mineral and peaches. Medium to full body, ultra-lively acidity and a long finish. Fantastic texture from the lees. All barrel fermented and aged. Fantastic. Pure sauvignon.
2017 La Jota WS Keyes Chardonnay, Howell Mountain – $99.99
95 Points | James Suckling
The 2017 Chardonnay W.S. Keyes comes from vines planted in 1992-1993. One-third of the wine went directly to barrel (dirty) and the other two-thirds was settled and barrel fermented. It was aged in 10% new oak. It leaps from the glass with notes of honeyed white peaches, lemon tart, Golden Delicious apples and lime blossoms plus hints of marzipan and lemongrass. Medium-bodied with a seriously racy backbone and loads of intense citrus and stone fruit layers, it has a lovely satiny texture and long chalky finish.
2018 Kosta Browne Pinot Noir, Sta Rita Hills – $89.99
95 Points | Jeb Dunnuck
The 2018 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills was 90% destemmed and brought up in mostly neutral oak (French and Austrian). Its ruby/purple hue is followed by a beautiful bouquet of ripe strawberry and raspberry fruits interwoven with plenty of spice, flowery incense, and violet nuances. Ethereal, medium-bodied, and elegant on the palate, it has a terrific sense of balance, integrated acidity, and a great finish. It’s not a blockbuster Pinot by any measure yet has complexity, balance, and length. I’m a big fan.
2016 Screaming Eagle, Napa Valley – $4,500
100 Points | Robert Parker
The 2016 Screaming Eagle is, as usual, mainly Cabernet Sauvignon with a little Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with bright, exuberant blackberries, kirsch and warm blackcurrants scents plus touches of lavender, roses, tilled black loam, wild sage and dark chocolate with wafts of yeast extract, underbrush and crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, firm and fine grained, with amazing freshness, it is layered with crunchy black and red fruits, sparked by floral and mineral notions and finishing with epic length and depth.
2000 Dow’s Vintage Port, Portugal – $150
99 Points | James Suckling
An opaque blue/purple color (typical of this vintage’s top offerings) is followed by a strikingly provocative aromatic display (flowers, licorice, blackberries, and cassis). This firmly-structured, classic, tightly-knit, restrained port exhibits brilliant purity as well as impressive intensity. While not the most dramatic or flamboyant, it is a beautiful, classically structured port that will age gracefully. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2030.
