SCARECROW 2011 CABERNET SAUVIGNON "M. ETAIN" NAPA VALLEY 750mL

Scarecrow is not just a historic property; it is monumental! The J.J. Cohn Estate, where Scarecrow grapes are born, have gone into some of the most fabled wines ever to come out of Napa Valley, including Inglenook, Opus One and Joseph Phelps Insignia. Many of the vines are around 50 years old and these highly prized “Old Men” continue to produce uncommonly rich fruit—the hallmark of Scarecrow. For a property of such admiration, only a winemaker capable of producing some of the best wines in the world would do… and that’s where winemaker Celia Welsh comes in! In addition to lofty scores at Scarecrow, Celia makes some of the highest scoring wines in Napa, including Lindstrom, Kelly Fleming, and Keever! Harvesting individual rows over a two week period, Celia fermented each lot individually, aged the wine for 16 months in French oak barrels, crafted the blend and bottled without any fining or filtration. The result is a wine with a dark ruby/garnet color with a strong purple hue. The nose is richly fragrant with notes of violets, boysenberry, cassis, vanilla and a hint of that classic “Rutherford dust.” On the palate the wine is initially very tight and taut, showcasing minerals, structure and hints of black fruits, but as the wine opens up, the richness begins to build and gain density, letting the black plum, currants, and black cherry come through. A knockout of a wine by a knockout of a winemaker, this shows that no matter what the vintage, Celia can craft something magical!
