Screaming Eagle, We've Got One Better!
An Exclusive 3 Acre Vineyard Bordering Screaming Eagle

Better? Yes, better!

If you are a fan of Goldschmidt's Game Ranch Oakville Cabernet you already know the story:

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?

Goldschmidt's prestigious Game Ranch Vineyard is 100 yards from Screaming Eagle, literally a sand wedge away. 

This exclusive three acre gravely vineyard in the Oakville district of Napa Valley offers Screaming Eagle terroir without the price tag.

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 red are made each year. This is the newly released 2015, another outstanding vintage that can be enjoyed now and over the next decade.

Better than Screaming Eagle?  

At $80 vs. $1,800, we sure think so!

$78.95 per bottle / $947.40 per case

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 2015 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!
