This was opened for 3 hours and then decanted for about 30 minutes prior to consumption. It was drank after a 2011 Perliss the Ravens and a 2010 Greer. Tonight the wine was very impressive with a nice nose (dark fruit) and great texture on the palette (hints of smoke, tobacco, milk chocolate) While the M Ètain was solid the Greer was easily the WOTN.

Absolutely spectacular! Hard to believe this is their second label. Beautiful nose and deep red color. Aroma was full of berries and chocolate, with hints of leather. This is going strong. Had a little bit left in bottle the next day and it was still holding up stronger than most wines do! If you haven't tried it yet, pull a bottle out and get ready for something magical! Really enjoyed this Scarecrow!

High acid, strong firm tannins. This needs YEARS. Don't open for at least 5 years!!

Wine opened beautifully. Sweet and silky taste that got better and better as the night went by. Sophisticated yet gentle to the tongue. Awesome wine.

Yes, this is just a baby. But we wanted to pull a bottle to celebrate, and we just couldn't resist.

Slow ox for 2 hours, and drank over the next 3. Better put your big-boy pants on for this one -- it is a monster. Lots of grip from the tannins and a bit of heat, but mellowed some with air. And did not overwhelm the nose or palate.

Flavors really ran the gamut of a wonderful Napa cab. Ripe fruit, earth tones, cigar box, just a constant evolution in the glass. At first, even got a very unique taste on the finish that reminded me of a spiced gumdrop at Christmas time. I love Rutherford and the dusty tones in many wines produced there -- this was missing those tones, but substituted a wide array of evolving notes.

Like I said, this is just a baby and I'm sure will be drinking smoother/better after some cellar time. But wow, this is some great juice. Can't convince myself to give this anything less than 95.

Decanted for 4 hours. This wine is showing lots of dark red fruit with a medium to heavy feel on the palate. Hints of smoke, tobacco, and cassis add nice complexity to the fruit. Soft tannins on the finish make this approachable early.

I have had this previously and liked it much better 94+. Not sure if this bottle was messed up or what. I hope it washy where I purchased it from because I bought 6 bottles after my first taste. This one had much less nose and far less finish than first bottle I had. I also was not as impressed with the tannins. Seemed to be missing. I hope my next bottle imitates my first and not this one.

Lovely, sleek dark and blue fruit on the nose with a bit of mint and oak. Forward and voluptuous on the palate. Great integration and purity. Big in the mouth but elegant fruit. Long finish with a touch of heat.

Amazing wine, and I really, really wanted to wait, but just couldn't. Special occasion called for special wine.
Decanted for 1 hour, then small pours in large glasses... so nice. Dark purple/ink color - exactly how you would expect a classic California Cab to look. Really jam filled, lots of raspberry and blackberry and very long-lasting on the tongue. Could have decanted longer and I'm guessing would have been even better and more complex hours later. Hold on to these if you have them, they are going to get even better!

Opened, decanted and let breathe for 2 hours... nice, inky color with hints of ruby (appropriate for the Tin Man).
Very smooth and drinkable - tannins a bit hot for the first glass or 2, but REALLY came into its own by about the 5th hour open. Love this wine now, but could use a couple of years. Wish I had more.

There is a lot going on here, but this definitely needs a few years in the bottle to integrate. For a challenging vintage, this is an impressive wine.

Not for me! Just a small taste but the 15% alc and new oak makes this a relatively soulless wine at this point. Extracted fruit bomb. Perhaps the oak will integrate but not sure this wine can ever overcome it's weighty 15% alc burden. There was about a 3rd of the btl left when I got a taste and even though it had seen plenty of air there wasn't much of interest for me. Winemaking style trumps terroir here.

Dinner with the Gilchoa's; 2/16/2014-2/18/2014 (My House): This was one racy superstar!! Lots of mint and spearmint on the initial pour. Some green oak that was strange to experience but it quickly dissipated. Once this wine settled in it was ripe, juicy and full throttled. Lots of stuff going on here. If you are classic wine drinker this is surely not your cup of tea, speaking of tea I picked some of that up too. Ripe red fruits and some boysenberry stewed fruits and a nice long but drying finish. Give this 5-7 years and visit again. My WOTN

Dark purple red in color has a thick look in the glass. Notes of black cherry, cassis, mint, vanilla, dark chocolate and cinnamon. Velvety mouth feel, taste the same as nose with evergreen and plum added in. Tennis are strong. I think this might last a long time and be spectacular in a few years. Check back 2016

Pop and pour. This is a voluptuous wine with lots of dark fruit. Very juicy with a medium weight on the palate. Smooth finish with light tannin. Impressive for a second label.

Notes from final glass of a bottle opened last night. Color is fully opaque purple, lightly-stained medium legs. No sediment. Pure blackcurrant, bramble, eucalyptus, and pencil shavings in the aroma wheel. Medium-big body, generous acidity, and tannins that are approachable. Well done, but not getting the wow factor that I think the price should deliver. Really, just a notch over a good standard cab and I'm longing for a little more depth and character. That might come out with more sleep in the cellar, but who knows. 5+10+16+8 = 89

Tanzer missed the boat on this one. Chocolate, clove, and cassis on the nose. Full bodied to say the least. I know this is 100% Rutherford cab, but I didn't get dust. Going to try lay off the next bottle for at least 2 years or pick some up at auction.

Drank this against an '09 Rasa Cab (WA) with similar CT ratings and the ME was the unanimous favorite. It was not close.

Solid. Big and Bold. Classic Cali Cab. Really good for a second label. Def benefits from some air and some time but even popped and poured this was really nice. Bet it gets a lot better with continued age. 93+
