    May 16, 2021 - just getting even better, if that's possible.

    May 13, 2021 - PNP Cellar temp 54. Garnet coloring. Fine tannins present. Nose a little muted from the 14.9% which became more present with time and temp. Core of cherry red fruit. High quality. Holding score for 2nd half of bottle.

    24 Hours in the bottle. Cellar temp.

    What a difference this has made in the expression of this wine. Ox has added some weight and the heat has blown off. Red cherry has turned dark w/plum & figs. Tannins still present with a good bit of youth still present. For my palate this wine is a few years off from my desirable window. 97+

    April 5, 2021 - Flash decant. Absolutely superb. Round, full mouthfeel, tannins present but not overwhelming. Looooong finish. I believe in its prime right now. IMO best scarecrow yet when compared to prior vintages including 07 and 10.

    March 26, 2021 - there just isn't a Scarecrow under 95 (whatever that means, but it means GREAT), but this one suffers only by comparison to some of their truly superb years. One could drink only this wine one's whole life and be very happy.

  • J-Sho Likes this wine: 100 points

    March 20, 2021 - I have to do what I rarely do and give a 100 point score. This wine is absolutely in its prime. Nose that has dark fruit but combined with enticing graham cracker, dark chocolate, and a hint of anise. It was difficult to take a sip with the enticing aromas. On the palate it was absolutely beautiful and silky with a long, long finish. Bravo!
