Screaming Eagle

USA > California > North Coast > Napa Valley

First created by Jean Philips whose first vintage in 1992 was made in a plastic trash can, if any wine exemplifies the California Cult wine phenomena, it’s Screaming Eagle, which made its auspicious debut with their 1992 vintage.

Within two short years, the wine quickly shot to the top of the hot, must have collectible charts. Early vintages of Screaming Eagle were priced at $75, if purchased direct from the winery as a member of their exclusive mailing list. By 1995, Phillips raised the price to $125. At that time, that was the most expensive wine produced in California. The current price for the 1992 Screaming Eagle on the secondary market has soared to over $7,000.
