Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

A wine that captures the essence of the vintage, Scarecrow's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon M. Etain literally bursts from the glass with vivid, beautifully articulated fruit. Black cherries, raspberry jam, plums, espresso, menthol and rosemary are just some of the many nuances that take shape in the glass. The 2010 is rich, full-bodied and beautifully layered from start to finish. Another year or two in bottle should help the firm 2010 tannins soften a touch. The 2010 includes 5% Petit Verdot in the final blend. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

There's lots of power and thrust to the rich, extracted dried currant, loamy earth, black licorice and cedar flavors. This begs for cellaring as the tannins are muscular and gripping.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

(the first commercial release of this classic second wine was 2008, according to winemaker Celia Welch, who added that 2007 was the last year this estate sold any of its fruit, although it continues to sell bulk wine; made from "younger vines and leftover pieces"): Bright medium ruby. Classic Rutherford cabernet aromas and flavors of currant, chocolate, mocha and fresh herbs, plus complex soil nuances and a note of graphite minerality. Sweet, succulent and quite approachable, with a minty note perking up the middle palate. Nicely dense wine with a firm spine of slightly dusty tannins. An excellent second wine and a very nice introduction to these extraordinary vineyards at a comparatively gentle price.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
