2007 Screaming Eagle Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1058830 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2007 Screaming Eagle opens with a dazzlingly beautiful fragrance of red roses, violets and lavender over a core of red currant jelly, kirsch, cassis and black raspberry layers plus blueberry preserves and stewed tea accents and a waft of cigar box. Medium to full-bodied, the tannins are firm yet wonderfully plush with a great intensity of perfumed red and blue fruits that are at once intense and ethereal, finishing on a lingering mineral note. This 2007 truly shows the personality of Screaming Eagle at its best. It is approachable now, still possessing plenty of primary fruit with those tertiary layers beginning to unfurl and therefore it cannot fail to impress even at this youthful stage. However, give it another 5-7 years to really get the full dividends of careful cellaring. (LPB) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

100 points Vinous

Outer quote mark As impossible as it might seem, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon takes things to another level. An exquisite, celestial bouquet melds into endless layers of fruit as this rich, voluptuous wine blossoms on the palate. Full-bodied and seductive, the 2007 conquers all of the senses with its head spinning, beautiful personality. As always, Screaming Eagle is a bit more restrained next to Napa Valley's other heavy hitters, yet the pedigree of this opulent vintage comes through in spades. A kaleidoscope of aromas and flavors flows through to the creamy, textured finish. I have tasted the 2007 several times recently and it has always been magnificent. The 2007 appears to be shutting down just a touch, but that is probably a good thing for the future. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2012)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Wow, love or loath the style, this is full throttle on the nose and palate with pure fruit and raspberry jam. Black currants and blueberries. Full and flamboyant but then holds back with gorgeous berries and milk chocolate. Wonderful length. Fascinating. Inner quote mark (2/2011)

96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark medium ruby. Captivating violet lift to the aromas of blackberry, cassis and minerals. Wonderfully fine-grained, lightly medicinal wine with terrific inner-mouth definition and energy. The flavors of dark berries, iron and minerals are still tightly coiled yet dance on the palate. This impeccably balanced wine finishes with suave, refined tannins and outstanding mounting length. Really stains the palate and reverberates in the retronasal passages. (ST-in Vinous) Inner quote mark (5/2017)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A wine with a purpose, notably dense, dark, rich and layered. Fairly powerful, but what stands out is the finesse and agility, centered on ripe plum, anise, dark berry and light cedary oak. The tannins give the flavors traction, yet they're sufficiently ripe to let the flavors flow unobstructed. (JL, Web-2017) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

100 points from Robert Parker in a previous Wine Advocate review: "The most profound Screaming Eagle since the 2002 and 1997, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (an 800-case blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc) offers up a prodigiously pure, complex nose of cassis, spring flowers, licorice and black currants, the latter component being so intense and lingering that it makes this cuvee stand apart from other Napa Valley wines. Full-bodied in the mouth, like a ballerina on her toes, this wine glides gracefully across the palate with a cascade of purity, equilibrium and compelling complexity. Extraordinary balance and elegance combined with power make for an utterly stunning wine that should drink well for two decades or more. Even though the estate is being reconstituted and a new winery built, this wine still came from the old sector of the vineyard (15.5 acres) that was used by the previous proprietor, Jean Phillips."
