2005 Scarecrow Cabernet - 98 pts!
The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon goes from strength to strength. Beautiful notes of crushed rocks, white flowers, and blue, red, and black fruits form a complex, compelling set of aromatics. The wine reveals superb richness, a full-bodied mouthfeel, excellent integration of acidity, wood, and tannin, and a terrific finish. This beautiful 2005 is already displaying some secondary nuances, and it should drink splendidly well for 2-3 decades. One of the true blue chip vineyards and wines of Napa Valley, winemaker Celia Masyczek fashions approximately 400 cases of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from a legendary Rutherford vineyard with 60-year old vines. Aged in 100% new oak, this cuvee reveals a very singular character. If California vineyards were ever classified a la French sites, this Rutherford terroir would be judged a grand cru.RP
