Napa First Growth Pedigree of Harlan, Bond, Levy & McClellan
Sloan Estate’s operation which sits on a beautiful hillside just above Auberge du Soleil in the eastern portion of the Rutherford AVA has taken off in less than a decade. The immensely talented production team led by winemaker Martha McClellan, vineyard manager David Abreu, and consulting oenologist Michel Rolland has endeavored to handcraft exceptional wines since the 2001 vintage. SLOAN ESTATE is committed to the mission of producing the finest wines possible from the hillside estate that honors the unique character of its extraordinary terroir.
With a micro production of just about 600 cases and multiple 100-point scores, amassing wines from Sloan Estate is next to impossible!

"Full-bodied and fabulously decadent in the mouth, the palate reveals a very firm, very plush frame with loads of perfumed layers and an epically long, fragrant finish."
Lisa Perrotti-Brown Dec 2018
"Moving to the grand vin, the 2016 Proprietary Red is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon with the balance Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Tasting like a mix of the 2013 and 2014 with its incredible elegance and power, it reveals a deep purple hue as well as extraordinary notes of creme de cassis, crushed violets, lead pencil, and unsmoked tobacco. Ethereally textured, seamless, and full-bodied, it builds incrementally on the palate and is a monster of a wine that somehow stays light, graceful and elegant. It should hit maturity after a decade of cellaring and be a 40- to 50-year wine." JD Jan 2020

"The 2003 was made by Martha McClellan and the viticulture looked over by David Abreu. The 2003 Sloan, if slightly less prodigious than the perfect 2002, remains a young wine. Notes of vanillin, espresso roast, blackberries, scorched earth, camphor and hints of charcoal and barbecue meat jump from the glass of this spicy, rich, provocative Cabernet Sauvignon. With a full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet tannin and adequate acidity, the blend includes 14% Cabernet Franc and 86% Cabernet Sauvignon from this extraordinary hillside vineyard above Auberge de Soleil in mid-Napa Valley."
