THE REVIEW

It doesn't happen often. A small amount of the Goldschmidt Game Ranch Oakville Cabernet has been re-released from the winery. And, not just any vintage, but the highly prized 2012 vintage! This wine is extremely limited. First come, first served!
    To this day, Screaming Eagle remains one of the most sought after Cabernet Sauvignons from California. At $1,800 per bottle - if you can find any - it is a special occasion wine without question.
    But what if you could get the same terroir as the most collectible California Cabernet for a fraction of the price? What if we told you that the Goldschmidt Game Ranch Vineyard borders the Screaming Eagle property?
    At $85 vs. $1,800, Goldschmidt's prestigious Game Ranch Vineyard Cabernet is 100 yards from Screaming Eagle, literally a sand wedge away. It is an exclusive three acre gravely vineyard in the Oakville district of Napa Valley offering Screaming Eagle terroir without the price tag.
    Because it is in such demand, Goldschimdt Game Ranch rarely if ever gets submitted to wine critics for review. This tiny vineyard produces low yields with dense fruit. Exhilarating flavors of black cherry, intense anise, chocolate, currant, sage and mocha flavors explode on your palate. Smooth but firm tannins on the finish clearly display the wine's quality. Delicious!
    Only 300 cases of this single vineyard diamond in the rough are made each year. Arriving tomorrow, this outstanding vintage can be enjoyed now and over the next decade.Read More »
