Winemaker's Notes

The aromas of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon are exactly true to Rutherford Cabernet; warm briary berries, dark juicy bing cherries, a touch of sweet black tea, a hint of woodsy oak leaf, the faintest whiff of cigar smoke, all revolving and recombining as the aromas, evolve with time in the wineglass. On the palate, the flavors reflect what the aromas had promised, but with added textural elements of softly folded satin, bright fresh berry juice viscosity, and the vibrant, lively fruit flavors integrated into the vanilla/oak tones. The finishing impression is of cherries and dark raspberries complexed with warm spice and sweet earth notes.

Critical Acclaim

"Scarecrow's inky/purple-colored 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is a prodigious effort. It reveals a liqueur of crushed rocks intermixed with a smorgasbord of spring flower, blueberry, creme de cassis, and assorted blue, black, and red fruit characteristics. It also possesses extraordinary concentration, but what sets it apart is the fragrant aromatics combined with uncommon purity and elegance for such a full-bodied, massively concentrated wine. Its perfect balance suggests it can be drunk at a relatively young age, but it should easily evolve over 30-35 years. Congratulations to all involved! "
100 Points

"Firm, fresh, intense and vibrant, exhibiting a minerally crushed rock flavor and a texture mixed with ripe currant, plum and blackberry, with a dash of mocha-laced oak. Full-bodied, with floral scents and elegant balance. Firms on the finish, where the tannins give the flavors wonderful traction."
97 Points

"Full ruby-red. Powerful minerality gives definition to the aromas of blueberry, cassis, licorice and bitter chocolate. At once pliant and penetrating, with utterly palate-saturating yet refined flavors of dark fruits, bitter chocolate and graphite. This utterly complete cabernet has a texture of liquid silk. Finishes extremely long, with noble tannins that coat the front teeth. As rental agreements on some additional acreage expire in 2009, this estate plans to introduce a second wine. Range: 94-97"

Learn About Scarecrow

THE SCARECROW STORY The Scarecrow story begins in a patch of earth with a fabled past. The J.J. Cohn Estate, where Scarecrow grapes are born, borders what was once the legendary vineyard of Inglenook winemaker Gustave Niebaum, whose plantings blanketed more than 1,000 acres of the Napa Valley at the close of the 19th century. John Daniel Jr. took the helm at Inglenook in...

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
