Lot #2. Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Description: Consists of 1 Magnum, 1.5L
Packaging: OWC.
Score: 98 AG.
"The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is stunning. A wine that is only now beginning to shed its tannin, the 2006 stands out for its vibrancy and energy. All of the classic Screaming Eagle notes are in the glass, but with a little more edge and cut than in most vintages. Sweet red berries, crushed rocks, flowers and spice box are alive in the glass. Over time, hints of sage, mint rosemary and pencil shavings add complexity. The 2006 is a decidedly cool-weather wine with less opulence than either the 2007 or 2009, but it is absolutely singing today. Another few years will only help the wine come together even more fully, but it is impossible to miss the 2006’s utterly breathtaking beauty." Wine Advocate #204, Dec 2012
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $6,500
