96 points Vinous
Dark plum, mocha, spice, licorice and asphalt meld together in the 2011 Scarecrow. One of the most powerful, resonant wines of the year, the 2011 is endowed with serious structure. Readers need to be patient. Today the tannins are super powerful, but at the same time there is tremendous complexity in the glass. The 2011 is arguably the most refined Scarecrow ever made. There is plenty of depth, but also incredible elegance and precision throughout. (AG) 96+ (11/2013)
91-93 points Wine Advocate
A notable success in an extremely irregular vintage (even more so for Napa’s valley floor vineyards), the 2011 Scarecrow Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a deep ruby/plum/purple color, and a slightly lighter weight and less of a serious foundation of structure than the 2010. However, the wine’s purity and hints of kirsch, black currants, berry fruit and toasty oak are well-displayed and well-integrated into this seamlessly constructed effort. (RP) (10/2013)
92 points Int’l Wine Cellar
Good ruby-red. Cassis, blackberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and a pungent mineral component on the vibrant nose. Denser than the estate’s second wine, showing an attractively fine-grained texture but not quite the depth or sweetness of a top year here. I find this youthfully closed today, with the wine’s broad tannins in need of at least a few years of patience. (ST) (5/2014)
Always stored properly in a climate controlled cellar.
