2009 Scarecrow Cabernet - OWC - 96-100 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?

Rating 96-100 RP - Put your seatbelts on for the 2009 Scarecrow, which should end up rivaling their prodigious 2007. A wine of great intensity, an opaque purple color, a mind-blowing nose of almost liquid flowers intermixed with crushed rock, blueberry, blackberry, and cassis, the wine has terrific minerality, laser-like focus, and a stacked-and-packed palate that builds incrementally like a 20-story skyscraper. This is truly prodigious stuff and an early candidate for the wine of the vintage. Moreover, it should be relatively precocious in its youth given the sweet tannins, and last for 20-25 years. RP
