Winemaker Notes

A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

Critical Acclaim

RP 98
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 is performing even better from bottle than it did from barrel. Sloan and McClellan decided to bottle it later than usual, recognizing the rugged, tough tannins of the vintage could be sweetened up with longer barrel aging. Their strategy worked. The wine’s dense ruby/purple color is followed by notes of white chocolate, burning embers, creme de cassis, coffee, and scorched earth (think Haut-Brion or La Mission Haut-Brion). It possesses terrific structure, melted, well-integrated tannins, full body, and is already bursting with complexity. A great success, it is one of the vintage's most thrilling wines. Drink it over the next 20-25 years.
Rating: 98(+)

WS 97
Wine Spectator

An extraordinary effort, very tightly wound with a wealth of detailed flavors, exhibiting tiers of black cherry, plum, currant, berry jam, cedar, cigar box, black licorice and tobacco leaf. Full-bodied and well-structured, ending with tapered flavors that retain their focus. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2011 through 2025.

JS 93
James Suckling

Lovely violets, gardenias, and orchids on the nose with hints of dark fruits. Full bodied with fine tannins and firmly structured. This starts off slow, but then it really takes off and gives and gives. Very delicate and pretty. Pull the cork after 2016.

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.
