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.

”The wine’s dense ruby/purple color is followed by notes of white chocolate, burning embers, creme de cassis, coffee, and scorched earth (think Haut-Brion or La Mission Haut-Brion). It possesses terrific structure, melted, well-integrated tannins, full body, and is already bursting with complexity. A great success, it is one of the vintage’s most thrilling wines.” Robert Parker

”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

”An extraordinary effort, very tightly wound with a wealth of detailed flavors, exhibiting tiers of black cherry, plum, currant, berry jam, cedar, cigar box, black licorice and tobacco leaf. Full-bodied and well-structured, ending with tapered flavors that retain their focus.” Wine Spectator
