Sloan | Napa Valley Red Wine 2011 / 750 ml.

Item#: 82047

VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2014
The 2011 Sloan Estate has turned out beautifully. Readers will find more of an Old World flavor profile and sense of structure in the 2011, yet all the elements are very nicely balanced. Savory herbs, crushed flowers, lavender, mint and mocha all add lift to the perfumed dark red cherry fruit in this gracious, super-expressive Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine. The great sites always come through, even in the most difficult of vintages. I remember visiting Sloan Estate during the 2011 harvest and seeing first hand the attention to detail here. It’s no surprise the 2011 has turned out quite nicely.

Where It's From

District / Napa Valley

View more wines from Napa Valley

Napa Valley is California's -- and America's -- most famous and celebrated wine district. Located north of San Francisco, Napa Valley is most famous for its world-class Cabernets and Chardonnays. The region's acclaim officially took off following a 1976 tasting in Paris when renowned judges chose a Napa Chardonnay and Cabernet over top French wines made from the same grapes.

Most wineries in the region produce either a Chardonnay or a Cabernet, and usually it's both. Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel are also grown with success in Napa Valley. You'll likely recognize the names of some of the viticultural areas within Napa Valley, including St. Helena, Stag's Leap and Carneros.

Region / California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

Country / United States

View more wines from United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

Sloan | Napa Valley Red Wine 2014 / 750 ml.

Napa Valley Red Wine
2014 / 750 ml.

Item #: 89123

RP9898 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 13th Dec 2018
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Proprietary Red needs a little coaxing to reveal slowly unfurling notions of warm black cherries, mulberries, redcurrants and blackberry compote with touches of licorice, tapenade, chargrill and scorched earth. Full-bodied, firm, grainy and packed with layers of black fruits and savory flavors, it has a firm, grainy backbone of very ripe tannins and tons of vivacity, finishing very long.
VN9898 pts. - Vinous - Mar 2018
The 2014 Sloan is a terrific example of the vintage at its best. Mocha, espresso, grilled herbs, leather, smoke and licorice are al fused together in this super-expressive, nuanced wine. In 2014, the Sloan is not as exuberant or rich as it can be, but that is really not an issue at all. The 2014 is a gorgeous wine in the making, that’s all there is to it.

Sloan | Napa Valley Red Wine 2016 / 750 ml.

Napa Valley Red Wine
2016 / 750 ml.

Item #: 94477

JD9999 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - January 31, 2020
Moving to the grand vin, the 2016 Proprietary Red is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon with the balance Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Tasting like a mix of the 2013 and 2014 with its incredible elegance and power, it reveals a deep purple hue as well as extraordinary notes of crème de cassis, crushed violets, lead pencil, and unsmoked tobacco. Ethereally textured, seamless, and full-bodied, it builds incrementally on the palate and is a monster of a wine that somehow stays light, graceful and elegant. It should hit maturity after a decade of cellaring and be a 40- to 50-year wine. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP97+97–100 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 13th Dec 2018
This is a barrel sample blended of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, to be bottled the first week of February 2019. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Proprietary Red opens with fragrant notions of candied violets, chocolate box and baking spices with a core of blackcurrant cordial, preserved plums and blackberry compote with touches of garrigue and menthol. Full-bodied, rich and packed with black fruits sparked by tons of cinnamon and cloves accents, it has a firm, velvety-textured frame and great freshness, finishing with epic persistence.
VN9797 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2020
The 2016 Sloan is dazzling. Soft and unctuous with no hard edges, the 2016 Sloan is just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel. Sweet red plum, blood orange, spice, menthol and licorice are all melded together in a gorgeous, racy Cabernet Sauvignon that hits all the right notes. Unlike most top 2016s, Sloan can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring, although its true potential will only be unlocked with at least a few years in bottle. Spice, star anise, pomegranate and sweet red cherry overtones add an exotic flair.
JS9595 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Wednesday, January 27, 2021
A big, rich Sloan with chocolate, walnut, meat, cherry and plum. It’s full-bodied and very layered with intensity and richness. Very ripe, but remains solid and focused. A touch of alcohol on the finish. Still needs time. Try after 2024.

Sloan | Napa Valley Red Wine 2012 / 750 ml.

Napa Valley Red Wine
2012 / 750 ml.

Item #: 83665

VN9797 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2015
Black cherry jam, sweet spices, leather, mint and tobacco open up in the 2012 Sloan. Today the 2012 is succulent and super-expressive, with myriad of shades of dark red cherry, pomegranate, spice and new leather that develop. The flavors are deep and bold, with tons of vintage 2012 voluptuousness allied to significant palate presence. This is an especially exotic, unctuous Cabernet Sauvignon that pushes ripeness to the edge. All the elements are in the right place. Readers who enjoy modern, racy Napa Valley Cabernets will find much to admire in the 2012.
RP9696 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2014
Owned by the Chinese Pan family, but still featuring Michel Rolland as its winemaking consultant, the 2012 Proprietary Red Blend Sloan has turned out beautifully. The vintage gives it a precocious silkiness that is atypical. A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it showcases this fabulous terroir on the steep hillsides of the Vaca mountains, behind the luxury resort of Auberge du Soleil. The 2012 offers up beautiful notes of blueberries, blackberries, cedarwood, graphite, espresso, licorice and chocolate along with copious quantities of glycerin and fruit. This is a big, surprisingly savory and fleshy effort from Sloan that comes closest stylistically to their magnificent 2002. It can be drunk now but will be even better in 7–8 years, and should keep for 25–30 years.
VN94+94–97 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2014
A dark, voluptuous beauty, the 2012 Sloan Estate is a terrific example of the vintage. The flavors are rich, enveloping and ample, yet the wine retains the signature freshness of this hillside site. Dark red cherry, plums, new leather and exotic spices open up as this racy, exceptionally polished wine shows off its considerable personality. I imagine the 2012 will enjoy a long and broad drinking window once it is released. The 2012 was still in barrel when I tasted it in October 2012. Hopefully it will go into bottle with the same exciting combination of fruit, aromatics and texture that are present today.

Herold by Mark Herold | Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 / 750 ml.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
2011 / 750 ml.

Item #: 79055

RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2013
The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Herold by Mark Herold is a significant step down in quality from the 2010, simply because of the vintage conditions. Although much lighter, it displays a dark ruby/purple color, attractive ripeness, and notions of berry fruit, black raspberries and blueberries, bouquet garni, and earthy notes. Medium-bodied with a good but uninspiring finish, it is a successful wine for the vintage, and is best drunk over the next decade.

Bettina Bryant 2011 / 750 ml.

2011 / 750 ml.

Item #: 78573

VN92+92+ pts. - Vinous - Nov 2013
The 2011 Bettina is a bit closed in on itself. Dark red cherry, plum, licorice, smoke and tobacco emerge over time. Today the 2011 is a bit compact, which is not surprising considering the vintage. With time in the glass, the 2011 starts to find its typical explosive, dark personality, but today some slightly angular contours remain. The blend is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.
RP90+90–92 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st Oct 2013
The 2011 Bettina is a strong effort in this challenging vintage. Notes of licorice, black olives, black and red currants, spicy wood and underbrush are all present in this medium-bodied, fleshy, open-knit, charming wine. Drink it over the next 10–12 years.

Asterisk | Napa Valley Red Wine 2011 / 750 ml.

Napa Valley Red Wine
2011 / 750 ml.

Item #: 82048

VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Nov 2013
The 2011 ASTERISK is a drop-dead gorgeous wine, especially for a year that was so challenging. Freshly cut flowers, mint, super-ripe red berries and crushed rocks are totally alive in the glass in a wine that stands out for its energy, vibrancy and delineation. Fine grained tannins support the polished, impeccable finish. The 2011 Asterisk is a bit medium in body by Sloan standards, but it is notable for its balance and class. Sweet tobacco, licorice and savory herbs linger on the intensely aromatic, high-toned finish.
