Sloan, Napa Valley, Asterisk 2006
Perched on the eastern hills of Rutherford across 40 spectacular acres, overlooks the Napa Valley floor at elevations ranging from 875 to 990 feet above sea level. The 13 acres under vine were planted in 1997 on a mineral-rich, porous soil of fractured volcanic rock and sandy loam. The perfect blend of white tufa soil, a cool marine influence, and generous sun exposure forms the ideal site for growing fruit of a distinct quality and crafting exceptional wines that are compelling expressions of these elements.

Drinking amazing at the moment. Very fruit forward and was a great contrast to the French wines that we were drinking. This should have several years of good drinking ahead of us. 1/19/2023
