TASTING NOTES
Winemaker Celia Welch writes of the 2008 M. Étain:
Unmistakably from the Cohn Ranch in Rutherford, Napa Valley, this lovely Cabernet shows all the trademark nuances for which this ranch is known. Intense dark cherry, black plum and raspberry tones slowly escape from the wine surface, carrying with them nuances of of sweet baking spices (clove, nutmeg), vanilla, warm star anise, cedar, and warm mocha notes. On the palate, the texture is immediately broad and full, with a soft, heavy-satin sensation akin to melted dark chocolate. The finish echoes the fruit expression in the aromas, evoking dark fruits and a cocoa/mocha tone.

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested from five separate blocks of vines, all a part of the J.J. Cohn Estate in Rutherford, Napa Valley, between September 16 and October 1, 2008. Treated with the same care and respect as all of the Scarecrow lots, the fruit was harvested by hand, fermented in small vats, aged in 90% new French oak for 16 months, then bottled without fining or filtration in mid March, 2010. A total of 750 cases were produced.
