Screaming Eagle Cult Cab

Cult wines are a particular set of wines which command fanatical followings due to their low supply and high quality. A cult wine can be from any region but the phrase is most often used to refer to cult Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California. A cult wine usually commands high prices of over $100 per bottle or thousands at a wine auction. “Rockstar” winemakers are at the helm of the limited production, and to own one of these wines is usually a sign of status, connection, pride and wealth. Some of the longstanding top names are:  Harlan, Screaming Eagle, Caymus, and Dominus

  2. So you’re saying that bottle of 2006 Caymus Special Select I received as a gift is something to hold onto huh? I guess I’ll leave it in the wine fridge for a couple years or until I can’t stand looking at it anymore.

  3. It might be noted that the winery Williams Selyem was one of the first cult wineries in California. since 1981, I believe.They still produce outstanding Pinot Noir. I have never been lucky enough to find a bottle,let alone taste.
