Second Flight is part and parcel of Screaming Eagle; the wines express that signature freshness so typical of the estate and will age for many years regardless of the composition. Second Flight is in fact rarer than Screaming Eagle, producing only 500-800 cases a year.
One of the first actions taken by Kroenke, the sole owner of Screaming Eagle, was to introduce a second wine, Second Flight, a premeditated attempt to solidify Screaming Eagle’s Romanee-Conti-esque legendary status. Second Flight’s debut vintage was the 2006, which released in 2012. The Wine Advocate immediately scored both this and the 2007 94 points. Like Screaming Eagle each bottle has a bubble coded security system, which allows the consumers to immediately verify the authenticity of this prized possession
