Producer Notes

Sourced from the 60-year-old vines off Bret Lopez's JJ Cohn Vineyard in Rutherford, and made by Celia Welch, this wine became a legend in just three short years. The vines were planted in 1945 by JJ Cohn (Lopez's Grandfather) in response to neighbor and Inglenook Manager John Daniel's post-war behest to plant vines to service the coming demand. These original St. George-rooted, non-trellised "old... More »

Issue Issue 150

($225) Bright medium ruby. Strongly mineral aromas of black raspberry, cassis, dark chocolate, licorice and menthol, plus a whiff of Rutherford dust. Then silky, sexy and concentrated, with compelling inner-mouth perfume to the red and black fruit flavors complicated by loam and minerals. Very light on its feet. There's an essentially gentle character to this wine but also sneaky intensity, excellent grip and a serious spine for aging. The very rich, mineral-driven finish offers substantial but utterly sweet tannins and lovely lingering perfume. There's very little raisining at this site in Rutherford as the fairly rich soils have good moisture-holding capacity and the hills to the west block the late-afternoon sun. A beauty now, but it would be a shame not to give this some time to blossom in the bottle.

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!

Drink Dates 2010-2022

Firm, fresh, intense and vibrant, exhibiting a minerally crushed rock flavor and a texture mixed with ripe currant, plum and blackberry, with a dash of mocha-laced oak. Full-bodied, with floral scents and elegant balance. Firms on the finish, where the tannins provide grip for the flavors.

Very deep dark red color. Really intriguing nose: great fruit and spice notes. Many layers. Good medium to strong tannin and fruit level. Silky smooth, very round on palate. Long finish. $225 on release.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
