2000 Sloan Estate Cabernet - First Vintage of this New Cali Cult wine!!!
Sloan Estate, perched on the eastern hills of Rutherford across 40 spectacular acres, overlooks the Napa Valley floor at elevations ranging from 875 to 990 feet above sea level. The 13 acres under vine were planted in 1997 on a mineral-rich, porous soil of fractured volcanic rock and sandy loam. The perfect blend of white tufa soil, a cool marine influence, and generous sun exposure forms the ideal site for growing fruit of a distinct quality and crafting exceptional wines that are compelling expressions of these elements.

Rating 92 RP - An impressive effort in a troublesome vintage the 2000 Sloan Only 310 cases is a sign of things to come from this budding superstar. An opaque blue/purple color is accompanied by beautiful aromas of smoky cassis high quality cigar tobacco melted licorice and roasted espresso. This dense full-bodied rich 2000 exhibits a creamy texture well-integrated tannin and remarkable unctuosity a characteristic found in few 2000s. Notes of chocolate emerge as the wine sits in the glass. Obvious tannin suggests 2-3 years of cellaring is warranted it is capable of lasting 15-16 years.  Winemaker - MarthaMcClellan Bob Levy of Harlan's wife!
