An estate with a chequered history, many critics consider Scarecrow to be one of the jewels of the Napa Valley. Named for the favourite movie (and executive production credit) of the legendary J.J. Cohn, it is a wine which has been variously described as “sensational” by Robert Parker and “flat-out stunning” by Antonio Galloni, and is one of the cornerstones of Napa history.

In 1943, Cohn acquired 79 hectares of land adjacent to the Inglenook Winery and in 1945, his neighbour – the equally legendary John Daniel Jr – persuaded him to plant Cabernet vines on his property and sell the grapes to Inglenook. This quickly progressed to the Cohn Estate also selling grapes to Opus One, Joseph Phelps, Robert Mondavi and various other vineyards, and the rest is very much history.

On Cohn’s death in 1996, the estate was purchased as a package deal between Francis Ford Coppola and Cohn’s grandson Bret Lopez and it was Lopez who decided on the name of the new Scarecrow range, in honour of his grandfather. The debut 2003 vintage, made from the old dry-farmed Cabernet Vines first planted by Cohn in 1945, was a huge success, scored a monumental 98 points by Robert Parker and praised for its elegance, nuance and intensity. The Scarecrow label has only gone from strength to strength ever since.
