External Reviews for Sloan Proprietary Red
Deep ruby. Superripe aromas of blueberry, liquid graphite, violet, licorice and dark chocolate. Large-scaled, dense and primary; more muscular and a bit less harmonious at this early stage than the 2005 but also wonderfully creamy. Not quite as sweet... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2006 Sloan Proprietary Red 750ml
The 2009 Sloan possesses lots of espresso roast, chocolate fudge, baking spice, cedarwood, incense, creme de cassis, blackberry and subtle smoke characteristics. Surprisingly soft tannins are atypical for this vintage, but they work well and frame this full-bodied, concentrated, multidimensional wine. One of the finest Sloans made to date, it can be drunk now or cellared for 25-30 years...98" WA 10/13 "Original proprietor Stuart Sloan sold this property to the Hong Kong-based Pan family, and the affable Jenny Pan is now in charge. The winemaker continues to be Martha McClellan and the consultant is Michel Rolland. From this fabulous site, the Pans produced a 2009 and 2010 that are about as spectacular as these Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines can be. They are normally around 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Cabernet Franc and a tiny percentage of Petit Verdot.
