The Most Expensive Wine In The World 2021🍷
🍷💰🥇Screaming Eagle Cabernet 1992
The most expensive wine in the world, costing $500,000 for a single bottle, is more expensive than the average house! Cabernet has topped some of the world's most expensive wine lists over the years. In the year 2000, it was finally sold at a charity auction. The wine is aged in 60 percent new oak and has a blackcurrant scent, a faint oak flavour, and an opaque purple colour.
Things We Don't Know About Screaming Eagle
Screaming Eagle's popularity stems in part from its scarcity. The wine was originally made from a one-acre plot on a 57-acre (23-hectare) vineyard that Jean Phillips purchased in 1986. Robert Parker gave the 1992 vintage 99 points, and since there was so little of it – just 225 cases – everybody wanted it; that's how California wine works. In 1995, Phillips replanted the entire vineyard to (mostly?) Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. When Kroenke and Charles Banks bought the brand and vineyard in 2006, Banks said the vineyard needed to be replanted, but the intention wasn't to make a lot of wine. However, 57 acres is a substantial amount of land, enough to produce thousands of cases of wine. Is anybody really keeping track of how much wine Screaming Eagle produces?
For what it's worth, the Wine Advocate, which is as bullish on Napa Cabernet's long-term potential as any publication, claims that all wines from the 1999 vintage are now "Late" in their maturation period, which means "in the last third of the collection."
We still have no idea why the caged bird sings. The 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army, which took part in the D-Day landings, is known as the "Screaming Eagles." The division's name is still in use, since it was deployed to western Africa last year to help control the spread of ebola. Red wine is also used for a variety of medical purposes.
It all depends on how you want to consume the wine. Are you going to pair it with a good steak for dinner? Maybe in front of a crackling fire in your den? Then no, it's almost certainly not worth the money; there are plenty of wines at a tenth of the price that you'll enjoy just as much. Would you hand it over to your Cab-obsessed boss when you're up for a major promotion? Or to a lawmaker whose vote on important legislation you need? Alternatively, why not use it to entice your favourite Hollywood star to your table? If you get the work, he votes your way, and she doesn't turn out to be a drag impersonator, it's probably worth it.
