2008 Screaming Eagle Second Flight

Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend more

12/31/2012 - JHWinick Likes this wine: 91 points

An strong spiciness (black pepper) on the nose and palate that would had led me to guess syrah had I not known better. Dense, silky mouthfeel with flavors of plum and other black fruits. But nothing about this wine seemed consistent with the typical Screaming Eagle profile - it was simply too big. Also fairly tannic, so I would recommend a long decant or a few more years in the cellar.

2006 Screaming Eagle Second Flight

Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend more

Same impeccable balance as the regular Screaming Eagle, just with the "volume" turned down. The wine came across as distinctly cabernet sauvignon based, so I'd guess there is a significant component of cabernet sauvignon in the blend. But there are no hard edges to this wine, so there's clearly a healthy amount of merlot as well. Absolutely delicious though perhaps not a long ager.

1986 Château Haut-Brion

This is quintessential Haut Brion. Smoky, earthy perfection in a glass. By far the best bottle of 1986 Bordeaux I've yet had. This wine is squarely in the drinking window. It has plenty of life left, but can't imagine it being much better than it was on this night.

Great bottle of wine. Sweetness on the palate is perfectly balanced by acidity that clears the palate. Unique and awesome

Hot, heavy saline character, fairly monolithic. Not my cup of tea.

Extraordinary! Very little residual suger, but tremendous body (sense of lots of glycerol) and unbelievable secondary characteristics. A great wine to contemplate slowly after a meal.
