Why We're Buying

Fine wine does not get rarer or more desirable than this. Screaming Eagle is the ultimate cult cab, with its mind-blowing finesse and unrivaled class. While the Judgment of Paris elevated California wine to the global consciousness, it was Screaming Eagle that took the region’s reputation to stratospheric heights in the mid-90s. It’s why an imperial bottle of the debut vintage sold for a world record $500,000 at auction in 2000. The 2019 Screaming Eagle marks another epic chapter in this wine’s already storied history. Wine critic Antonio Galloni praised it as “simply magnificent from the very first taste,” noting a panoply of red and purple fruits, wildflowers, orange zest, leather, tobacco, and graphite. Meanwhile, Jeb Dunnuck compared the grand vin to the 2016 vintage, which earned multiple perfect scores from critics. Anyone with the good fortune to encounter this wine shouldn’t hesitate to invest. The Final Sip: Screaming Eagle is the archetypal California cult cab and the 2019 vintage reminds investors why.

Critics Scores


James Suckling

Lots of crushed berries, such as raspberries and blackberries, with spearmint and crushed stone, as well as redcurrants. Full-bodied with regal tannins that build on the palate as you taste it and flow over like a gentle waterfall. Such a beautiful, subtle and graceful texture. Best after 2027.


Jeb Dunnuck

The Grand Vin 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is reminiscent of the 2016, and possibly the 2014, with its beautiful balance, purity, and straight-up class. Offering remarkable purity in its crème de cassis, wildflower, spice, lead pencil, and tobacco-like aromas and flavors, it’s medium to full-bodied, has flawless balance, and building, silky tannins. It’s a thrillingly complete, classic Screaming Eagle that won’t hit maturity for another 7-8 years and I suspect will have 40 to 50 years of overall longevity.
