2011 Screaming Eagle "Second Flight" Oakville Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1185329 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet colored, the 2011 Second Flight (a blend of 54% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc) offers up a gorgeous perfume of wilted roses and violets over a core of blackberry tart, raspberry preserves and kirsch with subtle baking spices and garrigue notions. Medium to full-bodied with a solid frame of grainy tannins and just enough freshness, it has wonderfully perfumed layers and an exotic spice-laced finish. It has a surprising amount of weight and concentration for this cool, rainy vintage. Winemaker Nick Gislason informed me that the last pick was on November 1 this year—which is extremely late! But this later harvest clearly paid off when you consider how ripe the tannins are on this beauty. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A dark, voluptuous beauty, the 2011 Second Flight is laced with plum, grilled herbs, tobacco, smoke, violets and graphite. The style is cool, savory and precise, perhaps with a bit less body than normal, but with plenty of energy, finesse and balance. Simply put, this is a magnificent showing. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Lots of rose petal, rose stem, violets and dark fruit on the nose. Full body with firm, silky tannins and a juicy finish. Hard not to drink now. Gorgeous. 54% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc. This is not a second wine of Screaming but an interpretation of the vineyards with the most Merlot. Inner quote mark (5/2014)
