2002 Sloan Estate Cabernet - 100 Pts!
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 100 RP - The 2002 is indeed one of the greatest Cabernet Sauvignons I have ever tasted from California. Boasting enormous concentration extraordinary complexity roasted coffee notes intermixed with blueberry blackberry jus de viande subtle smoky oak and a wealth of spice it possesses terrific fruit extraordinary intensity and an amazingly pure rich long over 50 seconds blockbuster finish. This brilliant uncompromising expression of Cabernet Sauvignon clearly demonstrates this vineyard's potential as well as the enormous multi-million-dollar effort Stuart Sloan has put into both the winery and the vineyard. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020+. Talk about coming out with a Big Bang! Stuart Sloan the Seattle businessman has hit both gold and home runs with his extraordinary vineyard perched high on a hill above the renowned restaurant/hotel complex of Auberge du Soleil. A 60-acre estate only partially planted in vines with David Abreu handling the viticulture and Martha Levy wife of Harlan Estates' Bob Levy making the wine this is as impressive a new operation as I have ever witnessed.
