Intense and fruity. Tangy blackcurrant and a bit jammy but good fruit.

Everything a cult Cabernet should be. Very high quality yet integrated new oak, ultra-ripe and silky tannin, mouth-coating and voluptuous fruit, layered, and very lengthy. Seamless from attack to finish. The richness evident on front, mid, and back palate. showing some muscles under its fine velvet profile, very gorgeous. Aromatically not the most compelling with its high alcohol and elevated VA, all palate here though. However beneath the noise is some beautiful oak, exotic spices, and floral notes, still very complex just lacking a touch of detail. ‘Murica

Doing it’s silky chocolate cherries thing it does so well. Delicious fleshy fruit, some vanilla and graphite. Depth and finish aren’t on par with other vintages of Scarecrow I’ve had.

Just a few bottles from an awesome Open That Bottle Night celebration this past weekend.

One of the awesome bottles
@Keith Fisher broke out...this is drinking really well with little air time. It’s dusty, elegant and also gripping. Loads of dark red and black fruit. Dates, mocha and dark chocolate. So good.

Rich, ripe and full throttle. I’m describing @Kimberly Anderson but the scarecrow was all of that and in a phenomenal place. Lots of power and ample grace here. A special wine. I lobbied Kim for a BBB style cleavage pic and Chad was down for it, but she demurred....and it was 18 degrees outside so I get it.
