Sloan Proprietary Red 2011
Sloan Estate Winery was founded in 1997 when Stuart Sloan purchased 40 acres of land in the eastern portion of the Rutherford district in the Napa Valley. The vineyards have been managed by superstar viticulturalist, David Abreu, since inception and winemaking has been the responsibility of Martha McClellan since 2003.
The flagship blend is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with lesser parts Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. From the slightly cooler 2011 vintage, this is a beautifully fragrant and elegant release. Drink now and over the next 20 years.
