    SLOAN

    About SLOAN

    Founded by the eponymous Stuart Sloan, the Pan family purchased the winery in 2011 having been utterly bewitched by both the wines and the property itself for many years prior. The current team at SLOAN is a true all-star cast of vignerons including mythical consultant Michel Rolland and the hugely respected David Abreu who crafts some of the most desirable Chardonnays in the world.

    Viniculture

    Perched at an elevation of up to 900 feet on the Eastern hills of Rutherford overlooking the Napa Valley floor, SLOAN is comprised of 13 glorious acres of the finest terroir this region has to offer. Incredibly mineral-rich white tufa soil combines perfectly with the cooling maritime influence tempering the generous Californian sun. It is hard to imagine a more naturally harmonious situation from which to craft exquisite wines than this. Planted as relatively recently as 1997, this now legendary estate has ascended to the very highest echelons of fine wine in North America’s most famous region.

    SLOAN “Proprietary Red” is the flagship cuvée of this incredible producer, representing the apotheosis of both the terroir and winemaking prowess of the team here. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the grapes for this prestige wine are subject to ruthless selection thanks to the existence of a commendable second wine.

    Sloan Proprietary Red 2011 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (93)

    The 2011 Sloan Estate has turned out beautifully. Readers will find more of an Old World flavor profile and sense of structure in the 2011, yet all the elements are very nicely balanced. Savory herbs, crushed flowers, lavender, mint and mocha all add lift to the perfumed dark red cherry fruit in this gracious, super-expressive Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine. The great sites always come through, even in the most difficult of vintages. I remember visiting Sloan Estate during the 2011 harvest and seeing first hand the attention to detail here. It's no surprise the 2011 has turned out quite nicely.

    Sloan Proprietary Red 2013 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (99)

    The 2013 Proprietary Red displays a deep garnet-purple color. Wow—it emits the most gorgeous perfume of rose hip tea, violets, sandalwood and fragrant earth over a cassis and blackberry pie core with touches of mocha, cigar box, menthol and garrigue plus a waft of star anise. The powerful, full-bodied palate delivers a wall of exotic spice-accented black fruit preserves with a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing very long and layered. This needs time but is lookin’ glorious.

    Sloan Proprietary Red 2016 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (97-100)

    This is a barrel sample blended of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, to be bottled the first week of February 2019. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Proprietary Red opens with fragrant notions of candied violets, chocolate box and baking spices with a core of blackcurrant cordial, preserved plums and blackberry compote with touches of garrigue and menthol. Full-bodied, rich and packed with black fruits sparked by tons of cinnamon and cloves accents, it has a firm, velvety-textured frame and great freshness, finishing with epic persistence.
