The J.J. Cohn Estate, where Scarecrow grapes are born, borders what was once the legendary vineyard of Inglenook winemaker Gustave Niebaum, whose plantings blanketed more than 1,000 acres of the Napa Valley at the close of the 19th century.\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eJohn Daniel Jr. took the helm at Inglenook in 1939, determined to restore the label to pre-Prohibition standing and produce world-class Bordeaux-style wines. In 1945, Daniel convinced his neighbor, J.J. Cohn, to plant eighty acres of Cabernet vines on the 180-acre parcel Cohn had purchased a few years prior. The property served as a summer retreat for Cohn's wife and their family. He had no ambitions to become a winemaker himself, but Daniel promised to buy his grapes, so Cohn planted vines. The rest, as they say, is history. J.J. Cohn Estate grapes are highly sought-after in part because Cohn bucked the trend, begun in the mid-1960s, of replacing vines planted on St. George rootstock with the supposedly superior AxR#I hybrid. Over time, vines grafted onto this new stock proved highly vulnerable to phylloxera. But by then, virtually all of the old St. George vines in Napa had been destroyed. Only the original 1945 J.J. Cohn vines survived. These highly prized \"Old Men\" continue to produce uncommonly rich fruit—the hallmark of Scarecrow wine. A move west in the 1920s launched Cohn’s studio career. Highly resourceful and extremely capable, Cohn began as a bookkeeper, distinguished himself early and rose quickly through the ranks to become Chief of Production at MGM. His unofficial credo, \"Nothing is impossible,\" became the motto of his MGM staff. They knew him as a man who simply refused to take \"No\" for an answer.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-01-10T15:50:01-05:00","created_at":"2023-01-05T07:29:26-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_United States","LK0501","Other_Wine","Producer_Scarecrow","Region_Napa Valley","Source_Bestofwines1222","Type_Red Wine","varietal_cabernet sauvignon"],"price":399999,"price_min":399999,"price_max":399999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42665647931530,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2005 | Scarecrow | Cabernet Sauvignon","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":399999,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/21_90efca9a-0e21-4297-b812-ff18e50f542a.png?v=1672921810"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/21_90efca9a-0e21-4297-b812-ff18e50f542a.png?v=1672921810","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2005 | Scarecrow | Cabernet Sauvignon at CaskCartel.com","id":23913192325258,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.514,"height":627,"width":322,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/21_90efca9a-0e21-4297-b812-ff18e50f542a.png?v=1672921810"},"aspect_ratio":0.514,"height":627,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/21_90efca9a-0e21-4297-b812-ff18e50f542a.png?v=1672921810","width":322}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2005 | Scarecrow | Cabernet Sauvignon\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAs the wine opens up in the glass, faint hints of caramel and honey emerge.
