A limited upside to working every NYE for 12 years. It will be my first Screaming Eagle (2005).




Tough to top that troika

Love the Clos Apalta too


Clos Apalta started much better than Screaming Eagle

Even after both breathed for a couple hours, buta after they opened in the glass the SE got better. In the end the SE was better but the CA obviously a much better value given you can buy a case for the same as one bottle of SE. The Gargiulo needs more time. But also good. In the end, a great tasting event. Go Irish!


Wow. Hope it lives up to the hype. *

A lot of Screaming Eagle brought in $1,000,000 for the Naples Wine Festival and its charity a few years back.


Impossible to live up the hype, but I am interested to see

How it compares to the Gargiulo (adjacent vineyard) and the Clos Apalta which Wine Spectator rated #1 for the 2005 vintage. A pleasurable and exciting taste test for sure.
