Screaming Eagle 2019 “The Flight” Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley ~ 99 Points*

$1,399.99

James Suckling 99 Points: “ Extremely floral and aromatic with violets and lavender throughout. Black olives, too. It’s medium-to-full-bodied with firm, very fine-grained tannins that run the length of the wine. Goes on for minutes. A greenish undertone comes out at the end with some spearmint, green tea, and green olive. About two-thirds merlot. Best after 2028, but already stunning.”

 

Vinous 97 Points: “The 2019 “The Flight”, the estate’s Merlot-based wine, is dark, powerful and broading in demeanor, almost shockingly so.  The natural concentration of a year with low yields and small berries is very in evidence. A rush of black cherry, plum, graphite, lavender, and blue/purplish fruit builds as this virile, explosive wine shows off its arresting beauty.  In one word, impressive.”
