Description

The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with highly expressive, spiced Cabernet Franc-inflected aromas. Espresso, rosemary, lavender, violets and spices all take shape in the glass. The 2011 is a surprisingly dense, powerful Screaming Eagle with less of the pure seduction of some previous years and more intensity, especially in the tannins. Savory herbs, blackberries, menthol, appear later, adding complexity and pedigree. Cool, graphite-infused veins of minerality provide the backbone for layers of dark, brooding fruit. I don’t expect the 2011 to offer its finest drinking before age ten, and even that will likely prove an overly optimistic assessment. In 2011, the blend is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, the remaining 25% split evenly between Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
