2012 Screaming Eagle Second Flight, Napa Valley, USA

Screaming Eagle is California's original cult wine and still lays claim to the state's – if not the country's – most highly prized label. Second Flight is made from the vineyard's younger vines, and a white wine, the Screaming Eagle Sauvignon Blanc, was introduced in 2012.

Both of the 2012s show the more sexy, opulent, exuberant style of the vintage. The 2012 Second Flight is a more Cabernet Sauvignon based cuvee than normal and is 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, and 9% Cabernet Franc. It boasts a vibrant ruby color as well as loads of ripe black cherry, blueberry, white chocolate, dried flower, and graphite aromas and flavors. I love its texture, it’s full-bodied, rich and powerful, yet stays light and graceful with no sense of weight or heaviness, all making for one beautiful wine to drink over the coming 15+ years.

The 2012 Second Flight may be the highest scoring second wine I have ever reviewed. A blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc, it is completely different from the Screaming Eagle since the latter wine is at least 75% or more Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Merlot with only a tiny dollop of Cabernet Franc. The 2012 Second Flight offers up floral, blue and black fruit, mocha and white chocolate characteristics. It possesses full-bodied, silky flavors, and a finish that lasts 50+ seconds. It can be drunk now, but should evolve effortlessly for 12-15+ years. Reviewed by Robert M. Parker, Jr., Issue date: October 2014. Drinking window: 2014 - 2029

Vinous

(Rating: 94+) The 2012 Second Flight kicks things up a notch. Dense, layered and voluptuous in the glass, the Second Flight Impresses for its breadth and volume. Although only recently bottled, the 2012 nevertheless shows superb depth and tons of pure personality. Reviewed by Antonio Galloni, Issue Date: October 2014. Drinking window: 2017 - 2032
