"The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon (450 cases) is an identical blend to the 1999, 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc, crafted from the superb vineyard holdings in Oakville. It boasts an opaque purple color along with gorgeously pure, intense aromas of creme de cassis, subtle smoke, and the ever-present licorice. Opulent, full-bodied, and extraordinarily rich, yet somehow remaining light on its feet, this cuvee always stands out for its glorious purity and fragrance. The 2001 is approachable now, but based on how the 1992 is evolving (still a young wine that has not yet reached its adolescence), this wine should develop over 15-20 years."

"As I indicated last year, Screaming Eagle's meticulous proprietor, Jean Phillips, decided the 2000 was not up to her standards, so no wine was produced for that vintage. Although this was a costly choice for Ms. Phillips, after tasting some of the appallingly mediocre wines produced by famous Napa wineries, it appears to be a wise one that only adds to her credibility. Drink 2010 - 2025." Robert Parker 98
