(from younger vines): Dark ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of crushed cassis, licorice and violet. Juicy, spicy and still a bit youthfully tight, with dark berry, licorice and floral flavors accented by a light herbal component. Tannins are a touch edgy but even the young vines in this cool year communicate the purity of fruit typical of this superb site.

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.
