Scarecrow M. Etain Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon M. Etain is in essence a second wine, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Its deep purple color is followed by pure black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, dusty, loamy soil notes, extraordinary depth of fruit, ripeness and good acidity. This opulent, round beauty is ideal for drinking over the next decade or more. One of the classic wines of Napa Valley, Scarecrow's Cabernet Sauvignons are made by well-known winemaking consultant Celia Welch. This historic vineyard in Rutherford, which owns some of the oldest vines in all of Napa, continues to turn out some of Napa's most profound Cabernet Sauvignons.
