We are delighted to offer the blockbuster 2012 wines from elite Californian producer Sloan. Sloan is renowned the world over for producing some of Napa Valley’s most exclusive and desirable wines and they are notoriously difficult to acquire outside of the estate’s tightly-controlled mailing list. With this in mind, we are very excited to be able to offer both the flagship Sloan Proprietary Red and the second wine Asterisk Proprietary Red to our private customers, especially in a vintage as good as 2012…


Enjoying prime hillside position on the eastern hills of Rutherford in Napa valley, Sloan’s vines were planted in 1997. Their inaugural 2000 vintage was met with wide acclaim, and described by Robert Parker as “a budding superstar”. Fast forward to the present day, and Sloan has established its reputation as one of Napa’s greatest and most exclusive wines, securing a number of 100 point Parker scores and a fervent following.


The secret of Sloan’s success lies in its winemaking and terroir, both of which are second to none. No expense is spared at Sloan, and glancing down the list of people behind the estate feels much like reading a who’s who of luxury wine. Bernard de Laage de Meux, the previous Commercial Director of Chateau Palmer, plays a key role in the estate’s management, while the hugely talented production team includes winemaker Martha McClellan, viticulturist David Abreu and famed oenologist consultant Michel Rolland.


The results are clear to see in the glass. Dense, opulent and perfectly balanced, the flagship Sloan Proprietary Red is a monumental wine, which Parker has previously called “extraordinary” and, according to Antonio Galloni, “could easily be mistaken for a top-flight Left Bank red”. Meanwhile the estate’s second wine, the Asterisk Proprietary Red, is an elegant, compelling riff on its older brother and, according to Galloni, “punches well above its weight”.


Sadly for many collectors, the vast majority of its 600 cases now disappear directly into the cellars of the few people lucky enough to be selected for the estate’s mailing list, making Sloan especially hard to acquire on the market. With this in mind, we are delighted to have secured an allocation of both wines from the current vintage: the 2012 Sloan and 2012 Asterisk. With 97 and 93 points respectively, these are stunning wines, and the opportunity to buy them direct is unparalleled in the UK.
