Stunning wine. Great, young fruit, with hints of charcoal, and Bittersweet Chocolate. Black Cherries and currants are prevalent, oak in balance.

Opens with black currant, follows with vanilla and mint. Dark brooding purple in the glass, wonderful aroma. A very well made wine, still a bit young and will probably improve for about 5 more years. Distinctive in flavor profile, and elegant.

Full bodied and cavernous in depth, mellow lingering resonance, leading out to a succinct finish. Masculine.

About This Producer


Sourced from the 60-year-old vines off Bret Lopez's JJ Cohn Vineyard in Rutherford, and made by Celia Welch, this wine became a legend in just three short years. The vines were planted in 1945 by JJ Cohn (Lopez's Grandfather) in response to neighbor and Inglenook Manager John Daniel's post-war behest to plant vines to service the coming demand. These original St. George-rooted, non-trellised "old men" continue to produce world-class fruit for world-class wine. Scarecrow is named after the character in The Wizard of Oz, as Cohn was Chief Production Executive at MGM pictures in the 1930s, when the movie was made. Lopez spent his summers as a boy at the vineyard and relishes the memories from that time. He and wife, Mimi Deblasio, reside in the original house at the vineyard.
