Scarecrow is one of the rarest wines in California and the world. In 2013 just 1,000 cases were made – and the 2013 vintage was rated a perfect 100 points by Robert Parker – a stunning buy to drink or hold. Think of it as a cult wine on a par with Screaming Eagle, but around one third of the price.

Scarecrow’s vines (the oldest in Napa) date back to the 1940s, when Joseph Judson Cohn (MGM executive producer of The Wizard of Oz and Ben Hur) bought the property in Rutherford, and the vineyard became known as one of the leading terroirs in Napa Valley.

The name Scarecrow pays homage to one of the most popular characters in the Wizard of Oz.

”100% Cabernet Sauvignon, including fruit from some of the oldest Cabernet vines still in existence in Napa. This full-bodied classic displays notes of forest floor, earth, crème de cassis, blackberry liqueur, licorice and some pen ink. It is dense, full-bodied, prodigiously rich, massive in intensity, yet relatively light on its feet. This great ballerina of a wine has extraordinary ripeness but pulls back from the edge before going over the top. There are 1,000 cases of this classic, which should age effortlessly for 30+ years.” Robert Parker
