Product Description

The 2014 M. Etain Cabernet Sauvignon is the 2nd wine for Scarecrow, sourced from the estate's younger vines. This wine begins with enticing aromas of cassis, black plum, violets, dried blackberries, baking spices, chestnut, and a hint of fresh earth. On the palate, wild plums, black cherry jam, and a hint of warm vanilla flavors are balanced and elegant, the mouthfeel polished yet dense, the structure displaying the traits of long ageability. Extremely limited.

Varietal Composition: 96 Cabernet Sauvignon, 4 Petit Verdot
Appellation: Rutherford AVA, Napa Valley
Aging: 17 months, French oak barrels

94 Points - Wine Advocate
"Celia Welch has hit a home run again with the legendary J.J. Cohn Vineyard in Rutherford, a site that includes a block of old vines planted in 1945, which certainly must make them some of the oldest Cabernet vines in all of Napa Valley. There are 2,000 cases of the 2014 Monsieur Etain, which is a great enough Cabernet by itself. Wonderfully pure crème de cassis notes with some white flowers, lead pencil shavings and incense are followed by a deep, full-bodied wine with silky tannins, a layered, multi-dimensional mouthfeel and a beautiful finish of 40+ seconds. This is an exquisite, dense, rich but sexy Cabernet Sauvignon. And now for the good news – there are 2,000 cases of it. Drink it over the next 20 or more years." -RP, 12/30/16

"An exquisite offering, deftly balanced, elegant and refined, with a crescendo of flavors that remains on point. Complex, featuring mineral and red and dark berry notes and a kiss of dusty, cedary oak. Drink now through 2032. 1,500 cases made." -JL, 11/15/17

92 Points - Vinous Media
"Graphite, smoke, licorice, incense, scorched earth and dark cherries infuse the Cabernet Sauvignon M. Etain with real depth and pedigree. Striking aromatics give the wine the freshness and energy that are typical of the vintage. The M. Etain was bottled a bit earlier than Scarecrow. Perhaps for that reason, it is super-expressive today. Far more than a second wine from the property, M. Etain increasingly has a personality all of its own. With time in the glass, the 2014 is positively striking today." -AG, 12/2016
