We were able to get 6 bottles of this library offering from Screaming Eagle’s cellar. This 57-acre vineyard in eastern Oakville has 40-acres planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and a few rows of Sauvignon Blanc with Nick Gislason overseeing winemaking, Michel Rolland consulting and David Abreu farming this hallowed estate. We’ve been able to enjoy many of their vintages and the one resounding parallel to all the wines is that they need bottle age. The wines upon release are very good but with 12-15 years in bottle, they gain more complexity than any Napa Cabernet I’ve tasted before. This library offering is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc. "It is a sexy, upfront, precociously styled wine exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color as well as lots of licorice, camphor, black currant jam, new oak and spice box characteristics. Dense, rich, and impressive, the early drinking charm of the 2011 vintage gives it immediate appeal. It should keep for 10-15 years."
