“Screaming Eagle, We've Got One Better! • 2018, THE Vintage To Own!”

2018: The Most Sought After Goldschmidt Release From THE Vintage To Own!

By David Gettenberg

You are going to want to stock up on this particular Goldschmidt release!

Harsh winters didn't impact quality but did produce smaller yields for the stunning 2018; the same for 2019. And, fires plagued the 2020 vintage. As such, there will be no 2020 Goldschmidt Game Ranch.

All this amounts to some of the greatest demand we have ever seen for the 2018 Goldschmidt Game Ranch Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon, one of the hidden treasures in the Oakville District of Napa Valley.

By now, you know the Goldschmidt story: Screaming Eagle is one of the most sought-after Cabernet Sauvignons from California. At $2,000 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?  Specifically, Goldschmidt's prestigious Game Ranch Vineyard is 100 yards from Screaming Eagle, literally a sand wedge away.

Exhilarating flavors of black cherry, intense anise, chocolate, currant, sage, and mocha flavors explode on your palate. Smooth but firm tannins on the finish display the wine's quality. The fruit is balanced and lush with remarkable depth and nuance. Absolutely delicious!

Goldschmidt's Game Ranch is an exclusive 3-acre vineyard tucked in the Oakville District. This tiny parcel produces low yields with dense fruit. Only 300 cases of this single-vineyard red are made each year.

Goldschmidt fans will want to stock up as there is going to be a significant reduction in availability going forward.

Better than Screaming Eagle?

At $80 vs. $2,000, we sure think so!​​​​​​​
