Description

Hailing from Rutherford within the heart of Napa Valley, Sloan’s Proprietary Red is a wine that radiates the essence of this world-renowned winemaking region.

Sloan Estate, a celebrated name in Napa Valley viticulture, is known for crafting wines that exude power and complexity. The Proprietary Red is the pinnacle of their winemaking, meticulously sourced from their estate vineyards.

This wine is meticulously crafted from Bordeaux grape varieties, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. These grapes are sourced from Sloan’s own vineyards in Rutherford, where they’re carefully tended and hand-harvested to ensure the highest quality.

The winemaking process combines tradition with modern techniques, including gentle fermentation and precise oak aging. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for an extended period, often around 24 months or more, allowing it to evolve and develop its remarkable complexity and structure.

Sloan’s Proprietary Red is brimming with aromas of blackberries, dark cherries, and cassis, mingling with hints of vanilla, cedar, and a touch of sweet tobacco. On the palate, it offers a harmonious balance of bold, velvety tannins and a refreshing acidity. Flavours of ripe plums, black currants, mocha, and a subtle earthy undertone dance elegantly, leading to a long and memorable finish.

The Proprietary Red is a wine that encapsulates the opulence and power of Napa Valley. It reflects Sloan Estate’s deep connection to the land and their unwavering commitment to crafting wines that are both expressive and age-worthy. Whether enjoyed now or allowed to evolve further in your cellar, this Bordeaux-style blend invites you to savour the grandeur and enduring tradition of Napa Valley’s finest wines with every sumptuous sip.
