Screaming Eagle. Harlan. Sine Que Non. These are all wineries that have attained Cult status among collectors, shooting up in value overnight. What’s more is that they’ve done it in an alarmingly short period of time. Lafite and Margaux may slightly edge these California rivals in terms of price, but they’ve had a multiple-century head start. In its inaugural 1992 vintage, Screaming Eagle was available for 50 bucks. Just last week that same wine traded at a Zachys auction for $6,600. Even if you can afford to shell out the $1,000 per bottle release price, be prepared to wait a couple decades on their mailing list for access to it.
