1998 Screaming Eagle Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $3000)

SKU #999492 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon, which was bottled in late June, has turned out even better that I thought last year. It boasts a saturated ruby/purple color in addition to an expressive bouquet of cassis, minerals, and smoke. This multi-textured, round wine exhibits sweet, well-integrated tannin, a great mid-palate and finish, as well as spectacular purity and palate presence. Consume it now and over the next 15-20 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2000)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Bright, rich and focused on a core of juicy black cherry, plum and blackberry fruit that's complex and concentrated, finishing with a hint of mint, a long, intricate aftertaste and mild, integrated tannins. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2001)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good medium ruby. Aromas of cassis, redcurrant, cocoa powder and tobacco, with a vegetal trace in the background. Focused and precise in the mouth, with lovely texture and sweetness. Notes of blueberry and tobacco. Finishes juicy and long. With extended aeration, this impeccably made wine showed richer aromas of black raspberry and mocha, and a fatter texture, with strong but harmonious acidity enabling the wine to maintain its shape. Certainly one of the half-dozen strongest Cabernet-based wines from this difficult vintage. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/2001)
