    Winemaker's Notes:

    The aromas of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon are exactly true to Rutherford Cabernet; warm briary berries, dark juicy bing cherries, a touch of sweet black tea, a hint of woodsy oak leaf, the faintest whiff of cigar smoke, all revolving and recombining as the aromas, evolve with time in the wineglass. On the palate, the flavors reflect what the aromas had promised, but with added textural elements of softly folded satin, bright fresh berry juice viscosity, and the vibrant, lively fruit flavors integrated into the vanilla/oak tones. The finishing impression is of cherries and dark raspberries complexed with warm spice and sweet earth notes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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!

    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 give the flavors wonderful traction.

    Full ruby-red. Powerful minerality gives definition to the aromas of blueberry, cassis, licorice and bitter chocolate. At once pliant and penetrating, with utterly palate-saturating yet refined flavors of dark fruits, bitter chocolate and graphite. This utterly complete cabernet has a texture of liquid silk. Finishes extremely long, with noble tannins that coat the front teeth. As rental agreements on some additional acreage expire in 2009, this estate plans to introduce a second wine. Range: 94-97
