92 Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate (December 2012)
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon bursts from the glass with huge dark fruit, scorched earth, menthol, licorice and smoke. The first impression is quite positive, but then the persistence on the mid-palate unexpectedly drops off quickly, as if there is a hole in the middle of the wine. In this vintage, the difference between the second label M.
Etain and Scarecrow is much less evident than in 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
