Lot #485. Scarecrow Cabernet Sauvignon Monsieur Étain 2014

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Packaging: OWC.
Score: 94 RP.
"Celia Welch has hit a home run again with the legendary J.J. Cohn Vineyard in Rutherford, a site that includes a block of old vines planted in 1945, which certainly must make them some of the oldest Cabernet vines in all of Napa Valley. There are 2,000 cases of the 2014 Monsieur Etain, which is a great enough Cabernet by itself. Wonderfully pure crème de cassis notes with some white flowers, lead pencil shavings and incense are followed by a deep, full-bodied wine with silky tannins, a layered, multi-dimensional mouthfeel and a beautiful finish of 40+ seconds. This is an exquisite, dense, rich but sexy Cabernet Sauvignon." Wine Advocate #228, Dec 2016
Provenance: The Ruisseau Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $350
