Sloan Proprietary Red 2005, 750mL (WA96+, ST95, WS94) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Sloan Proprietary Red

750mL

Vintage: 2005
Region: US
Appellation: Rutherford, Napa
Producer: Sloan

WA96+, ST95, WS94
Rated 96+ points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon has an almost La Mission Haut-Brion-like, scorched earth nose intermixed with cassis, coffee, and subtle hints of chocolate and balsamic. The wine is rich, full-bodied, but with great elegance and palate presence, without being heavy. Every wine to date has displayed considerable tannin, but even more concentration and fruit, so it is not an issue of the wines drying out, but rather requiring some patience before the complexity, which is already showing promise, emerges and the wines soften. This is a brilliant 2005 that is certainly one of the top wines of the vintage but needs some time in the bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2030+.`Not much has changed at Proprietor Stuart Sloan`s vineyard since his brilliant debut vintage of 2000. From his thirteen acres of gently sloping hillside vineyards, his winemaker Martha McClellan and the globe-trotting Michel Rolland turn out 600 cases (with a potential 1,000 cases in the future) of splendid Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines have some Merlot (which they barrel-ferment in very small lots) and Cabernet Franc in the blend, but the wine is dominated by at least 80% Cabernet Sauvignon in every vintage. These wines have been extraordinary from the beginning and are clearly meant for serious cellaring. Kudos to Stuart Sloan, his winemaker Martha McClellan, and of course, his superstar viticulturalist David Abreu, and consulting oenologist Michel Rolland.`--Tasting Note by Robert Parker--
