Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

M. √Čtain by Scarecrow

This lovely offering shows the trademark raspberry, fresh plum and dusty cocoa tones that personify its Rutherford origins, but with more subtle, graceful notes of sweet anise, cinnamon bark and bayberry adding complexity that only a slow-ripening vintage like 2011 could produce. Texturally, this 100% Cabernet has enough backbone to lend a serious basenote of power, yet shows restraint and finesse despite the complex flavors. The finish lingers with flavors of warm plum and vanilla, with a hint of toasty oak.

Reviews

  • "92 points. A nose of rich chocolate, boysenberry, notes of violet, nutmeg and vanilla. The palate is firm yet velvet-like, layered with camphor, black plum, dark berry and cherry. Very nice wine." (Doug Wilder's purely domestic wine report)
