Bottle of 2012 Scarecrow Wine

This was part of a 3 pack from my allocation. For those of you who are not familiar, Scarecrow is one of the "cult" wines from California. Robert Parker gave the 2012 a 98 rating. $460 shipped.



The classic 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon included fruit from the 2-acre, old vine parcel that is nearly 70 years of age. It boasts an opaque purple color as well as copious notes of spring flowers, blackberries, black raspberries and wet rocks. The wine’s gravelly minerality and spectacular opulence and density make it an instant classic. This massive, full-bodied 2012 should drink beautifully for 15-20+ years. It showed incredibly well last year, and it still reveals the potential to possibly merit a 3-digit score – it’s that special.

The problem is that you don't drink them fast enough

And I thought my beer collection had gotten absurd.

No kids and no wife, which is what allows for this type of heaven. I have a black lab but the rack is secured to the wall, so the only danger it is in is from drunk girls grabbing on as they fall over.

Nice. Wife and I just bought a house near her parents which has a few disadvantages as well as a few perks. Trying to get him to build something proper where he can store everything nicely as half is in the garage in crates and the other half in here.

Impressive! Especially the hang tags. I got tired of how time consuming it was to do those... now i just use the pull and surprise method.

Nice and cool with stable temps, dark, and a little damp. Sounds good to me! Certainly not perfect though. I think he considers himself more of a hobbyist with a bit of nerd mixed in who likes to share his collection with just about anyone, rather than a connoisseur. He never really planned for proper expansion so I'm trying to help him out with that now.
