SHIPPING NOW

This is the 2013 vintage of our best selling Cabernet - and a great vintage at that! We've received another tiny amount of this release, which is extremely limited. First come, first served.

Screaming Eagle is 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 $80 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. This outstanding vintage and bottle can be enjoyed now and over the next decade.

Summary

Bordering California's Screaming Eagle property is the Game Ranch Vineyard in Oakville, an exclusive three acre gravely vineyard that produces low yields and dense Cabernet fruit. This small production wine is world-class. From the highly prized 2013 vintage, Goldschmidt's Cabernet Sauvignon shows rich aromatics of black fruit, violets, mocha, and spice. Blueberry, black currant, and dark raspberry flavors come across the palate with sumptuous oak. It is opulent, rich and powerful across the mid-palate. Enjoy now if decanting, or set down for at least a decade if cellaring.  A fantastic effort and vintage!
