1997 Screaming Eagle - Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Sauvignon - USA - California - Napa - Napa Valley - Red

USA - California - Napa - Napa Valley

Red Cabernet Sauvignon
Producer Notes

Screaming Eagle is a success story almost without equal and is the definitive "cult" classic of Napa. Founded in 1989 by Jean Philips, it "captures the essence of one great Cabernet site in Oakville." Growing mostly Cabernet, Merlot and Cabernet Franc on its little plot of land, Screaming Eagle produces an averages of 500 cases per year. The majority of that is sold only to members on the...

Issue Issue 93

Medium ruby. Complex, individual nose combines black raspberry, cassis, blood orange, cocoa powder, bitter chocolate, smoke and earth. Intensely flavored, fresh and sharply delineated, with notes of cassis, blackberry, dark chocolate and meat, and strong oakiness. Leaner than the '96 at a similar stage, but grew a bit denser and sweeter with aeration. Finishes rather oaky, with firm tannins and very good length. Conveys a strong impression of terroir, but I don't yet find the texture or depth of the best vintages of Screaming Eagle.

It doesn't get any better than 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon, a perfect wine. Representing the essence of cassis liqueur intermixed with blackberries, minerals, licorice, and toast, this full-bodied, multi-dimensional classic is fabulous, with extraordinary purity, symmetry, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. It has the overall equilibrium to evolve for nearly two decades, but it will be hard to resist upon release.

Fantastic aromas of crushed berries and ripe currants with hints of vanilla and coconut. Full-bodied, with velvety and rich tannins and a long, superripe fruit aftertaste. Goes on and on. Very jammy and exciting but well-defined and structured.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
