  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 100

    Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Proprietary Red is a little closed and broody at this youthful stage, the nose beginning to open and grow into a beautiful redcurrant jelly, cassis, kirsch and black raspberry core with nuances of red roses, mocha, unsmoked cigars, camphor and tilled soil. Full-bodied and fabulously decadent in the mouth, the palate reveals a very firm, very plush frame with loads of perfumed layers and an epically long, fragrant finish.

    The 2015 Sloan is a powerful, dramatic wine endowed with tremendous textural depth. A rush of blackberry jam, grilled herbs, leather and licorice builds as this flamboyant wine shows off its alluring personality. Even with all of its obvious intensity, the 2015 possesses a good deal of freshness and structure. It is a tremendous wine by any measure.

  • Location alone is enough to draw attention to this wine - the vineyards are perched upon a picturesque hill above the renowned Auberge du Soleil - but the added value of having David Abreu plant the vineyards and Mark Aubert as the founding winemaker ties it all together into a package destined for stardom. The inaugural vintage, 2000, came out in 2004, with huge concentration, brilliant fruit integrity and a rich, complex character. The incredible structure of the Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend comes from the balanced integration of the exquisite 100% Rutherford estate fruit and the obsessive attention to detail in the vineyard and cellar. Martha McClellan is current winemaker, under whose guidance Sloan continues in the young tradition that earned it a 100-point score from Robert Parker for the 2002 vintage.
