Screaming Eagle - RELEASE ALERT - 2007 Vintage

Well, afterall, it is mailer season, and everyone saw this coming. If there is a heavy hitter out there in cabernet sauvignon, and a highly coveted wine, it is Screaming Eagle. Release price stayed the same this year, at the bargain price of $750 per bottle, available in 3 packs in the original wood case. Yes, I said $750 per bottle. The mystique behind Screaming Eagle has been in place for a long time, and these are some highly coveted collectors items. Screaming Eagle definitely has a following, and yes, it is a good wine. Is it $750 good? Well, only your wallet and your palate can be the judge of that one. Will I be ordering? Probably not, but it sure would be nice to have some in the cellar. In the meantime, I'll continue to wish that I had won the lottery, and continue to get the opportunity to drink this wine with generous friends. Now the real question, is this going to attain a 100 point score this year? I wouldn't be surprised! Cheers! -F. Scott
