Scarecrow

Classification

Recognized as one of Napa Valley's leading estates, Scarecrow is not part of the Bordeaux Grands Crus Classes system. However, it stands toe-to-toe with the likes of Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Margaux, and Château Latour in terms of prestige and desirability.

Highlights

  • Vintages with 100-point scores: 2013, 2015, 2016
  • Most popular for its seductive balance between power and elegance.
  • Highest achievement: A record-breaking price for a single lot at the Premiere Napa Valley Auction.

Provenance & Masters Behind the Bottle

The origins of Scarecrow stretch back to J.J. Cohn Estate, the legendary Hollywood mogul behind iconic films like "The Wizard of Oz." The current owner, Bret Lopez, is J.J. Cohn’s grandson, who has continued the tradition of producing exceptional wines. Winemaker Celia Welch, a Napa Valley icon in her own right, has been pivotal in maintaining Scarecrow’s consistent high quality. Welch’s mastery of vine-to-bottle process marks her as one of the industry’s leading figures.

Vineyard & Craftsmanship

The Rutherford Dust soil adds complex nuances to Scarecrow's offerings. These vines, some over 75 years old, contribute to the wine’s rarity and complexity. The blend leans heavily on Cabernet Sauvignon, accompanied by smaller proportions of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The output is limited, enhancing its exclusivity and allure.

Aging & Investment Value

With its powerful structure and balanced acidity, Scarecrow wines are perfectly poised for long-term aging, developing additional complexities over time. Its track record for appreciating in value makes it not just a sensory pleasure but a sound investment.
