Scarecrow Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 2014
13% - United States
Robert Parker 100/100
The utterly perfect 2014 Scarecrow Cabernet Sauvignon (1,500 cases) has everything one could possibly want in a Cabernet. Inky purple-coloured to the rim, with a glorious nose of white flowers, crème de cassis, hints of blackberry and boysenberry, some liquorice and forest floor are followed by an enormously concentrated wine with fabulous purity, a skyscraper-like mid-palate and texture, a length of nearly a minute, and stunning flavours, with flawless integration of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol. This is a great, great wine and certainly one of the Cabernet Sauvignons of this vintage. Drink it over the next 25-30 or more years. Robert Parker Jr, Drink 2016-2048.
