Winemaker Celia Welch writes of the 2013 Scarecrow: Once again the Scarecrow Cabernet Sauvignon has been woven from the most balanced and luscious of the vineyard blocks on the historic J.J. Cohn Estate. Abundant with aromas of ripe purple berries, raspberries rolled in dark cocoa, hints of tarragon, cedar and tobacco and undertones of caramel and white tea, this wine provides a structured yet velvety entry, a mid-palate bursting with fresh fruit flavors, and a finish which demonstrates both power and elegance.

Wine SpectatorA dense, muscle-bound style that gives no quarter, with rich, chewy, grainy, extracted chocolate, dark berry, graphite and cedar flavors, balanced by aromatic notes of cassis and dark berry. Offers a gutsy, tannic texture, but shows a glimpse of elegance and refinement that time should reward. No rush here. Best from 2020 through 2035. 1,800 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe prodigious 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, including fruit from some of the oldest Cabernet vines still in existence in Napa. This full-bodied classic displays notes of forest floor, earth, crème de cassis, blackberry liqueur, licorice and some pen ink. It is dense, full-bodied, prodigiously rich, massive in intensity, yet relatively light on its feet. This great ballerina of a wine has extraordinary ripeness but pulls back from the edge before going over the top. There are 1,000 cases of this classic, which should age effortlessly for 30+ years.
