Item #: 2


3 – 750 ml bottles total


Screaming Eagle is California's original cult wine. Produced in tiny quantities from a small vineyard in Napa's Oakville appellation, the Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine is America's most expensive regularly produced wine. The first vintage of Screaming Eagle was released in 1992 and sales are done from the winery through a mailing list, which has been full since 2000 – and there is a waiting list several thousand names long.
 
Eleanor and Bob have reached deep into their well-stocked cellar once again to present the coveted Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 in the Original Wooden Crate. Start the bidding high on the Founders Lot for the 28th Annual Grand Auction!

Composed of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, the very deep purple-black colored 2015 Screaming Eagle leaps from the glass with notes of freshly crushed black currants, black cherries and blackberries with suggestions of cigar box, black raspberries, red currants, chocolates, pencil lead and cast-iron pan plus a touch of potpourri. Medium to full-bodied with a rock-solid backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness,  it features the most incredible black and red fruit layers and finishes with incredible vibrancy and depth.
