2006 Scarecrow Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1045928 99 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Minerals, mint, and berries in the nose. Full, powerful, polished, with wonderfully dense tannins. The finish is long, long, long. This is amazing, I love the freshness and length. Very classy and elegant, wonderful stuff. I am wowed. Great length, it's muscular with wonderful definition. Inner quote mark (4/2011)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The full-bodied 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon does not possess any of the hard, foreboding tannins found in some 2006 Cabernets, but rather, it displays a silky, velvety personality. Although not as nuanced or complex as the 2005, it is a brilliant wine offering generous levels of black currant fruit intermixed with graphite, scorched earth, and a hint of underlying smoke. It will be surprisingly delicious early in its life but capable of lasting two-plus decades. (RP) 94+ Inner quote mark (12/2008)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good full ruby-red. Complex nose offers blackcurrant, raspberry, mocha, coffee and licorice; conveys a strong site character. Silky-sweet and creamy in the mouth, with dark fruit and bitter chocolate flavors given an almost magically light touch by high notes of minerals, mint and lavender. Quite subtle and juicy for a wine with nearly 15% alcohol. Finishes with very fine tannins and terrific lift and length. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2009)

K&L Notes

Scarecrow is the product of the vineyards of the legendary JJ Cohn (think Wizard of Oz) and the name pays tribute to him. The vineyards are equally remarkable and storied, having provided fruit for many spectacular wines, including the early and magnificent Inglenook Cabernets, and later for many of the iconic Napa Cabs of more modern times. The pre-phylloxera St. George root stock and incredible old vines now produce the fruit for Scarecrow.
