Scarecrow Monsieur Ètain Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

$249.99

Rare new release from cult winery Scarecrow. Limited. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot, the 2018 M. Étain is deep garnet-purple colored and prances out of the glass with exuberant baked cherries, warm mulberries, plum pudding and crème de cassis notes with touches of Provence herbs, tilled soil and pencil lead plus wafts of spice box and potpourri. Full-bodied, firm and earthy in the mouth, the palate has bags of freshness and a firm structure with loads of spicy nuances on the finish.

Small production, pricey but nice for special occasions. Blend of 87% Cab Sauv, 6% Malbec, 4% Merlot & 3% Petit Verdot. Deep Ruby with aromas of elegant ripe berry fruits and gentle oak notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry, plump blueberry and currants, with cedar, earthy herbs and floral. Fine rich tannins, well integrated, long finish ending with elegant fruit, leather and earthy oak. Wow! Tasting Sample!

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon M. Étain is a powerful, muscular wine that speaks with booming authority. Blackberry, gravel, chocolate, spice and lavender are some of the many aromas and flavors that saturate the palate. Far from an easygoing 2018, the M. Étain is a brooding Cabernet that needs time in bottle to allow the formidable tannins to soften. It remains one of the most distinctive wines made in Nape Valley. Dollops of Merlot and Malbec from the back of the property round out the blend. There are 2,400 cases of the 2018, a large production within the context of Napa Valley for a wine of this level.
