Sloan has gone from strength to strength since its first release in 2000. From just 13 acres of hillside vineyards, winemaker Martha McCellan together with the famous Bordeaux wine consultant Michel Rolland make world class Cabernet-based wines.

”With fewer than ten vintages under their belt, it is amazing what proprietor Stuart Sloan and his winemaker, the talented Martha McClellan, have accomplished.” Robert Parker

”…the seamless 2008 Sloan reveals an opaque purple color along with similar notes of burning embers/charcoal/scorched earth (reminiscent of a ripe, powerful vintage in Bordeaux’s Pessac-Leognan), full body, beautiful density and stunning texture and length. Another prodigious Cabernet Sauvignon-based cuvee, it should age effortlessly for 25-30 years.” Robert Parker
