Lot #16. Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Packaging: OWC.
Score: 98 RP.
"The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, which I loved last year, has gotten even better, something I saw across the board with the bottled 2005s (a superb year for Bordeaux varietals). This blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc was aged in 67% new French oak for 21 months. It possesses a gorgeous, Pauillac-like bouquet of cedar, creme de cassis, licorice, smoke, and earth as well as sweet tannins, full body, fabulous layers of fruit, a noble sweetness, and outstanding length. This 2005 can be drunk now or cellared for 25+ years." Wine Advocate #180, Dec 2008
Provenance: The Pigeonneau Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $5,000
