2001 Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Wine Tasting Note

2001 Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon  (Oakville) 98

I was surprised by how elegant this was showing. It was grace and purity of fruit. The sweetness in the cherries with the addition of licorice, smoke, truffle and tobacco were there on the palate and in the perfume. It's hard to say where this is going. My instincts say if you're going to pop a bottle, this is the right time to be tasting it.

The complex nose, with its oak, smoke, earthy, gun flint, mineral, fresh, blackberry and cherry essence gets your attention. The soft, lush, soft, sensuous, plush, ripe fruits and low acid profile feels great on your palate as well. Refined and pure, this is perhaps the most elegant styled, California Cabernet Sauvignon made today.

This kicks off with licorice, black cherry, cedar, ripe black pit fruit and berry aromas. Soft, sultry and sexy on the palate. Very concentrated with great purity, intensity and balance. The long finish ends with a blast of sweet black fruit. Screaming Eagle is about, texture, purity, finesse, elegance and balance. They will not confuse tasters with the other top Cult Cabs. Tasting these wines showed, Screaming Eagle is not like other California Cabernets.
