Moncharm | Screaming Eagle 2009
After the huge success of 2007, the 2009 Screaming Eagle is an unmatchable blend of the king of the red, Cabernet Sauvignon. It reflects remarkable intensity, richness and depth. The flamboyant bouquet is a balanced communion of diverse flavours of Dark red berries, mint, spices and floral notes. The palate is dense with multilayered fruity mouth feel and sensuous, long finish. Balance is the one word that can define this great label. Moncharm recommends to have this wine any time between 2017 and 2029.

The distribution system employed by the estate makes the wine rare as most of the wine is sold to the consumers directly through the mailing system.
