1997 Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon 100 points Wine Advocate 75cl / 13.8%
A bottle of Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon 1997 wine from Oakville, California.
Founded in 1986 by Napa Valley estate agent, Jean Phillips, who acquired the 23 hectare property on the eastern side of the valley, with the first commercial release being the 1992.
'It doesn't get any better than 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon, a perfect wine. Representing the essence of cassis liqueur intermixed with blackberries, minerals, licorice, and toast, this full-bodied, multi-dimensional classic is fabulous, with extraordinary purity, symmetry, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. It has the overall equilibrium to evolve for nearly two decades, but it will be hard to resist upon release. 100 Points' Robert M.Parker Jnr., Wine Advocate, 2000
