Tasting Notes

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Proprietary Red needs a little coaxing to reveal slowly unfurling notions of warm black cherries, mulberries, redcurrants and blackberry compote with touches of licorice, tapenade, chargrill and scorched earth. Full-bodied, firm, grainy and packed with layers of black fruits and savory flavors, it has a firm, grainy backbone of very ripe tannins and tons of vivacity, finishing very long. 2022 - 2055

Blackberry and blueberry aromas with orange peel. Full body, firm and solid with blackberry and walnut. Intense finish. A beautiful red. Give it time to open.

The 2014 Sloan is showing a bit more brightness and tension than is the norm, but the dark profile that is typical of this wine is evident. Tightly wound and quite tannic at this stage, the 2014 looks like a smaller-scaled version of the 2013. I expect it will also need time to be at its finest.
