Sloan Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley 2001

Member Review by Jason W:

[We tasted this wine blind in a "95" and up Cabernet Sauvignon tasting] Big, immense, and loaded with layers earthy, truffle mushroom, and dark chocolate complexity. By far, one of the most compelling 2001's from Napa Valley that I have ever tasted.

Sloan Estate is a cult winery founded by Seattle entrepreneur Stuart Sloan, an avid collector of Bordeaux and California wines who decided to produce his own label based out of Napa, California in the 1990s. Superstar winemaker Mark Aubert oversaw the first wines, and these early releases garnered raves, sending prices into the stratosphere and creating a very long waiting list for the mere 600 cases produced. Martha McClellan has been at the helm for the past several years. The 12-acre estate produces blends from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Later vintages have been known to sell at prices starting around $600 a bottle, with much more fetched at auction. In 2011, Sloan sold the business to Asian investors, but McClellan has stated that operations will continue as before.  Read less

The opaque purple-colored 2001 Sloan offers gorgeous aromas of espresso roast, smoked meats, creme de cassis, blackberries, damp earth, and new saddle leather. Full-bodied, opulent, and savory, with tremendous power and richness as well as an extraor... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2001 Sloan Proprietary Red 750ml
