To the roar of the room, the Scarecrow Wine lot went for an astounding $260,000, more than doubling the previous record of $125,000 for single lot bid. “We are thrilled to bring home this magnificent wine, drawn from the J.J. Cohn vineyard from nearly seventy-year-old vines,” exclaimed Bill Knight of Los Angeles retailer The Wine House. “We were willing to pay what we did for this wine because of the beautiful expression of its lineage and we look forward to sharing it with our customers.”
