    Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    Reviewer, Antonio Galloni - The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is stunning. A wine that is only now beginning to shed its tannin, the 2006 stands out for its vibrancy and energy. All of the classic Screaming Eagle notes are in the glass, but with a little more edge and cut than in most vintages. Sweet red berries, crushed rocks, flowers and spice box are alive in the glass. Over time, hints of sage, mint rosemary and pencil shavings add complexity. The 2006 is a decidedly cool-weather wine with less opulence than either the 2007 or 2009, but it is absolutely singing today. Another few years will only help the wine come together even more fully, but it is impossible to miss the 2006’s utterly breathtaking beauty. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.

    Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is a more structured, firmer style with noticeable tannins and an almost atypical Bordeaux-like austerity that is something of a departure from previous Screaming Eagle wines. It also seems somewhat out of character for the general vintage character, but once the wine sits in the mouth, the beautiful, rich, concentrated creme de cassis fruit, licorice, and spice box, are dramatic and noticeable. Overall, this is an elegant but more backward style of Screaming Eagle that will probably need 4-5 years of bottle age, and last for 20-25+ years if not longer.
