One bottle each of the 2008, 2009, and 2010 vintages in an authentic Screaming Eagle wooden crate. The king of the cult Cabernet movement, Screaming Eagle is arguably still the most famous and renowned estate in the Napa Valley today. Approximately 20 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are vinified with the upmost skill and care to produce just over 500 cases of extremely powerful, dense, opulent wine. Because of the winery’s cult following, small scale production, and consistent rave reviews, these wines are among the most sought after in America. These extremely rare wines are only available via a mailing list and to prestigious, Michelin starred restaurants in California.  Almost impossible to find, Screaming Eagle may only be found at major auction houses where their sale price may defy belief.
