Winemaker Notes

100% estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

RP 96
The Wine Advocate

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon, now in bottle, is an amazing wine with a dense purple color and a gorgeous nose of new saddle leather, espresso roast, licorice, chocolate, and enormous quantities of black currant, cherry, and fruit intermixed with smoked meats. Full-bodied, powerful, with a broad savory mouthfeel, a multi-layered texture, and no hardness in the finish, this wine has evolved beautifully, and can be drunk now or cellared for 25+ years.

WS 94
Wine Spectator

Dark, plush, intense and concentrated, with a deep core of ripe currant, blackberry, wild berry and cassis. The well-integrated oak has a roasted coffee flavor, and though this is quite tannic, the tannins are ripe. Ends with a long, persistent finish. Best from 2008 through 2015. 680 cases made.

Sloan
Sutong Pan and his daughter Jenny Pan fell in love with the beautiful wines produced by SLOAN ESTATE the first time they tasted them, and were captivated by the breathtaking property the moment they stepped foot on it. An unforgettable visit turned into a stewardship of the land when in 2011, the Pan family and the Goldin Group acquired SLOAN ESTATE from Stuart Sloan, who for over fifteen years had developed the vineyard’s remarkable potential and scaled the heights of quality. The Pan family is excited to build upon past legacies for future generations and share their passion with wine lovers around the world.

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—the word for the confluence of climate, soil, aspect and, quite possibly, soul, that makes the world’s most enchanted vineyard sites.

California

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.

Other White Blends

View all wine

With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
