SCARECROW 2012 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 18 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, and although the highest-toned, most perfumed aromas of ripe black cherries and raspberries jump immediately from the glass, with a short swirl of the wine one quickly senses the darker cedar, clove and sandalwood notes which create a sense of depth and complexity. Palate-wise, the wine shows a full, broad entry of ripe fruit, spreading to create a sense of fullness throughout the mid-palate. A continuous silky impression of fresh cherry juice from start to finish provides a sense of brightness to this complex wine.
