2012 Scarecrow "M. Etain" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1183418 94 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon M. Etain is in essence a second wine, but it sure doesn’t taste like one. Its deep purple color is followed by pure black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, dusty, loamy soil notes, extraordinary depth of fruit, ripeness and good acidity. One of the classic wines of Napa Valley, Scarecrow’s Cabernet Sauvignons are made by well-known winemaking consultant Celia Welch. This historic vineyard in Rutherford, which owns some of the oldest vines in all of Napa, continues to turn out some of Napa’s most profound Cabernet Sauvignons. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Features crushed rock, damp earth, cedar and cigar box flavors, with a savory dried herb accent dominating the core of dusty berry, licorice and blackberry. The tannins cling on the finish. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon M. Etain, Scarecrow's rarely seen second wine, is gorgeous. Layered, nuanced and wonderfully expressive, the 2012 captures the personality of the vintage in a convincing fashion. Dark red cherry, plum, sweet tobacco, cedar and spice notes open up as this soft, voluptuous wine shows off its hugely appealing personality. The creamy, textured finish is wonderfully inviting. All the signatures of this great Yountville site come through in a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next decade. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2014)
