2007 screaming eagle, the flight, oakville
Why We're Buying
Screaming Eagle The Flight may be the estate’s second wine, but what a second wine it is. The Bordeaux-style red blend features expressive dark fruit mixed with violets, spice cakes, and a touch of menthol flavor. Wine critic James Suckling gave it back-to-back 99-point ratings in 2016 and 2017, saying, "best Flight I have ever had with so much merlot character coming through… extremely refined and fresh.” As for investors, they routinely pay hundreds of dollars for a single bottle of this red wine.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The essence of this generous, voluptuous vintage comes through loud and clear in the 2007 Second Flight. A jewel of a wine, the 2007 is endowed with gorgeous depth and tons of personality. Raspberry jam, freshly cut flowers and licorice all flow through to a deep, enveloping finish that is pure 2007. This is another great showing from Screaming Eagle. In 2007 the blend is 59 Cabernet Sauvignon and 41 Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
