Founded in 1986 by Jean Phillips, Screaming Eagle Winery and Vineyards was one of the original cult wineries. Located in Oakville, the 57-acre winery was by 1992 winning rave reviews from such critics as Robert M. Parker Jr. Heidi Peterson Barrett was the winemaker in those years and the wine became so sought-after that it was one of the first to be available only through mailing lists. Screaming Eagle makes primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, though it occasionally produces very limited amounts of Sauvignon Blanc. In 2006 Phillips sold the winery to businessman E. Stanley Kroenke, who continues to produce very limited quantities of about 400 to 600 cases a year. In 2012 the winery released Second Flight, a Cabernet Franc and Merlot blend.
