About

Rating:

90

The 2017 Asterisk is a soft, easygoing wine that will drink well right out of the gate. The 2017 naturally doesn’t have the richness that is typical here, but it does offer terrific balance. In this vintage, Aasterisk has more of a red-toned fruit profile that matches its mid-weight feel quite nicely.

Product Description:

The estate’s flagship wine since its inaugural 2000 vintage, SLOAN Proprietary Red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Layered with remarkable complexity and intensity of flavors and aromas, SLOAN exhibits a gorgeous tension between elements of grace and power, balance and opulence, as well as age and vibrancy. It is a precise wine with defined structure and immense aging potential and at the same time, a seductive wine of exceptional fruit finesse, minerality, and multilayered mouthfeel. Crafted with meticulous care from vine to bottle and exacting standards for achieving the highest quality, this uninhibitedly rich and extraordinarily pure wine is a beautiful, raw expression of our terroir – a reflection of our soils, climate, and its place of origin.
