Winemaker Notes - Classic Napa Valley with deep, rich color and concentrated black fruit character. Lush, dark berry and cassis flavors complemented by 12 months of French oak barrel aging and a supple tannin structure.
AFFORDABLE SUBSTITUTES FOR SCREAMING EAGLE, THE FAMOUSLY EXPENSIVE NAPA VALLEY CULT CAB - VinePair Staff, January 22nd, 2015 -
This wine is made by the Mondavi Family, so they’re able to use their scale in order to find really great quality grapesat affordable prices. Which is why you can normally find this wine for around $18. The wine is dry, rich and perfect for a steak, giving off the smooth tannins and blackberry flavors that are really classic for Napa Cabs. It’s the same flavor the critics were raving about in their Screaming Eagle reviews.
