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

Dark, rich and concentrated, with great structure, depth and complexity, offering tiers of spicy currant, blackberry, sage, herb and pleasant mineral notes. The tannins are firm as well, giving this an excellent framework. Best from 2009 through 2022... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2004 Sloan Proprietary Red 750ml
