2006 Scarecrow Cabernet - OWC - 94+ pts!
The story goes as follows: In 1945 the famed John Daniel Jr. who made so many historically great wines at Inglenook convinced a neighbor of his J. J. Cohn to plant 80 acres of Cabernet vines and the fruit became a component of Inglenook's series of great Cabernet Sauvignons. Cohn who owned the property and planted the vineyard at the insistence of John Daniel had a prominent career in Hollywood as chief of production at MGM where he played a role in the making of such movies as "Ben Hur" "Mutiny on the Bounty" and his favorite movie apparently "The Wizard of Oz" to which the Scarecrow label pays tribute.

When we first looked at the winery we were impressed as it had all the elements to become a legend; great bottling and packaging great story incredible website and all from the "oldest Cabernet vines in North America". If only the juice in the bottle lived up to our expectations......well it actually exceeded our expectations! We called Brett to tell him how amazing we thought the wine was. After a few hours, we made a friendly wager. We touted this wine as the "Next Screaming Eagle" and placed hundreds of clients into this wine thru their mailing list! For once, Parker agreed with us and gave the wine 98 points!! With such phenomenal juice and limited production this wine is destined to become a Cult Legend and who knows......maybe take claim to the throne?

Robert Parker 94+ RP - A gorgeous young wine, fresh, pure, rich and vibrant. Complex, layered, deep and persistent, offering tiers of ripe, juicy cherry, currant, plum and berry, with touches of cedar, sage and black olive. Turns silky smooth and elegant on the finish, where the flavors are delicate and detailed. Drink now through 2020. 750 cases made. WS The full-bodied 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon does not possess any of the hard foreboding tannins found in some 2006 Cabernets but rather it displays a silky velvety personality. Although not as nuanced or complex as the 2005 it is a brilliant wine offering generous levels of black currant fruit intermixed with graphite scorched earth and a hint of underlying smoke. It will be surprisingly delicious early in its life but capable of lasting two-plus decades.
