Scarecrow M. Etain Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
A wine that captures the essence of the vintage, Scarecrow's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon M. Etain literally bursts from the glass with vivid, beautifully articulated fruit. Black cherries, raspberry jam, plums, espresso, menthol and rosemary are just some of the many nuances that take shape in the glass. The 2010 is rich, full-bodied and beautifully layered from start to finish. Another year or two in bottle should help the firm 2010 tannins soften a touch. The 2010 includes 5% Petit Verdot in the final blend. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
There's lots of power and thrust to the rich, extracted dried currant, loamy earth, black licorice and cedar flavors. This begs for cellaring as the tannins are muscular and gripping. Best from 2014 through 2024. 450 cases made.
