Sloan Proprietary Red 2018
This captivating red blend from SLOAN Estate showcases the rich and diverse character of Napa Valley. Offering a harmonious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot, this wine presents a powerful yet elegant palate of dark fruit, chocolate, and spice. Its refined tannins and balanced acidity make it an excellent choice for pairing with dishes like filet mignon or a hearty vegetable gratin.
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) - A blend of mainly Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller proportions of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2018 Proprietary Red displays and deep, vibrant garnet-purple color. Baked plums, blackberry pie, crème de cassis and toasty oak notes leap from the glass, followed by hints of tilled soil, Indian spices, mocha and crushed rocks. Big, full-bodied, opulent and velvety, it has a solid structure and a very long, seductively spicy finish.
