2007 Scarecrow Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1055682 100 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is one of those insanely good Napa Cabernet Sauvignons that delivers a huge amount of richness and opulence while somehow managing to stay lively, fresh, and weightless. Beautiful crème de cassis, flowery incense, spice box, chocolate, and flowers all soar from the glass, and this still ruby/purple-hued beauty is full-bodied, with a multi-dimensional, layered texture, ultra-fine tannins, and a mammoth finish. This magical 2007 certainly ranks with the finest Cabernets in the world. Inner quote mark (8/2021)

100 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Wow, love the minerals, mint, and spices with dark fruits and currants. Full bodied and balanced, with amazing fruit, mint and eucalyptus notes. Such depth and balance. I have tasted this twice now, and it gets better and better. Inner quote mark (4/2011)

100 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. Congratulations to all involved! (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2009)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Medium ruby-red. Very pure, very ripe but bright aromas of black cherry, dark berries, licorice pastille, minerals and Rutherford dust, lifted by a violet topnote. Wonderfully creamy and sweet but with firm structure underlying its black cherry, loam, mineral, tobacco and licorice flavors. Very concentrated, structured wine with excellent delineation and beautifully refined, building tannins. Finishes quite subtle and long, with a lingering black cherry taste and excellent delineation. This is impeccably balanced and thus accessible today but I suspect there's more ahead. A wonderfully complete Cabernet Sauvignon. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2017)

K&L Notes

Scarecrow is the product of the vineyards of the legendary J.J. Cohn (think Wizard of Oz), and the name pays tribute to him. The vineyards are equally remarkable and storied. When John Daniel, Jr., convinced his neighbor J.J. Cohn to plant these vineyards in 1945, he may have known the potential. The vineyards 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 St-George rootstock and incredible old vines now produce the fruit for Scarecrow.
