Scarecrow

"Many local vintners consider Scarecrow one of the crown jewels of Napa Valley."
- James Laube, The Wine Spectator

In 1943, Joseph Judson Cohn, an MGM executive producer of films such as The Wizard of Oz acquired the 195-acre (79 ha) property of Rutherford land adjacent to Inglenook Winery founded by Gustave Niebaum. In 1945 he was persuaded by his neighbor in charge of Inglenook since 1939, John Daniel Jr., to plant grape vines on his estate. 80 acres (32 ha) were planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, and the fruit from the Cohn estate was sold to Inglenook. In later years, the fruit from the J.J. Cohn Estate was sold to Opus One, Joseph Phelps Vineyards, Robert Mondavi Winery and Beaulieu Vineyard.

Today, the Scarecrow label pays tribute to the endearing and indomitable character from J.J. Cohn's 'The Wizard of Oz'. Scarecrow evokes a distinctly American agricultural icon and American optimism. And most importantly, Scarecrow honors the remarkable life of J.J. Cohn.

Cohn lived to be 100 years old, spanning a defining century that he helped shape. The people who labor with passion and conviction to bring you Scarecrow wine are proud to be part of his living legacy."

Tasting Notes

WA100
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!

Wow, love the minerals, mint, and spices with dark fruits and currants. Full bodied and balanced, with amazing fruit, mint and eucalyptus notes. Long and intense give it three to five years. Such depth and balance. I have tasted this twice now, and it…
