Sloan Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley 2008

Member Review by margaux1983:

2005 Sloan- Color, intense deep red, nose- red fruits, roasted vanilla and chocolate. On the palate, massive and multiple layers that unfold in a long, long, long finish. The pan seared steak with Roquefort cheese sauce was a perfect marriage with this wine.

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

    [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.

    The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon has an almost La Mission Haut-Brion-like, scorched earth nose intermixed with cassis, coffee, and subtle hints of chocolate and balsamic.

    ...An opaque blue/purple color is accompanied by beautiful aromas of smoky cassis, high quality cigar tobacco, melted licorice, and roasted espresso.
