    November 13, 2021 - Dense, coarse and inky black in color. Black plum, vanilla and mocha accents echo throughout, but even after 2+ hours of air this bottle never really opened up and showed the freshness and intensity we expected.

    September 26, 2021 - Scarecrow to me is most remarkable for how smooth it finishes. The tannins are balanced; little or no heat despite the high alcohol content. Plenty of acidity. There was more bricking than I would’ve expected. It’s really well balanced for all of the California cult cabs. I’m a big fan.
