Critical Acclaim

JD94 Jeb Dunnuck January 31, 2020

"I loved the 2017 The Flight, a Merlot-dominated blend (there’s normally a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) that comes from the estate vineyard and is raised with the same care as the flagship Screaming Eagle. Incredibly aromatic, with lots of black raspberry and blackberry fruits as well as notes of flowers, spice box, and hints of chocolate, it hits the palate with medium to full body, a polished, silky texture, and a great finish. As always, it leans toward the complex, elegant end of the spectrum, yet it never lacks for richness. It’s going to evolve for 20 years or more." (94 pts.)

VN94+ Vinous Jan 2020

"The 2017 The Flight is all about sensuality and nuance, both of which it has in spades. Precise and aromatically expressive with striking finesse, the 2017 is also a rare Flight that is going to drink well right out of the gate. In 2017, the blend has a bit more Merlot than usual because there was less Cabernet to work with as a result of the fires. That, along with a number of heat spikes, yielded an especially open-knit Flight. Rose petal, mint, lavender and spice give the 2017 striking aromatic top notes. Silky, perfumed and light on its feet, the 2017 is invigorating in its freshness, with a pretty, classically austere feel that is such a signature of the year at so many properties." (94+ pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
