Hundred Acre Vineyard

Ark Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2007


2007 Hundred Acre. Post-Thanksgiving dinner w McC at Jar. Decanted abt 1 hr before drinking. Still huge. Comp against ‘01 Sloan. This lacked some of the finesse that the Sloan showed. This is also so massive and too young to drink. — 4 years ago

My reward for the 1:49:55 finish in the NYC Half Marathon (and for beating my fundraising goal toward cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital!). My prior score and notes on this remain consistent. I just LOVE this wine. — 7 years ago

Asterisk Rutherford Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

Delectable Wine

The 2001 Sloan is a brooding powerhouse. Dark, inky and super-concentrated, the 2001 possesses tremendous textural richness from start to finish. Blackberry jam, licorice, cloves, new leather, mocha and French oak all build in the glass. The 2001 is still quite fresh and deep, but it is also heading into its plateau of maturity. All that said, the 2001 has aged well, although it is very much a wine of its era, with huge fruit and equally heavy torrefaction flavors from the oak. Beyond that, there isn't much else to say except that the 2001 is in a great spot for drinking right now. It is very clearly one of the wines of the vintage. This was Martha McClellan's first vintage at Sloan. Mark Aubert made the 2000 and then departed in July of the following year. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, April 2023) — 8 months ago

Jefferson's Bourbon

Jefferson's Reserve Pritchard Hill Cabernet Cask Finished Very Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

I thought this was tremendous. Unlike the Groth cask reserve I get a vibe for the wine barrel treatment here. This is 15 yr old bourbon finished in Chappellet Pritchard Hill cab oak barrels. The bourbon itself has a red hue, possibly owing to the wine barrel. I actually poured my taste in to my wine glass after I finished off some Sloan. To me it's a more successful experiment than the Groth cask. The increased time in French oak has created a smooth, dry whiskey with absolutely zero bite. While I can't specifically pinpoint flavors of wine...or Pritchard Hill...the flavors of cherry and dark chocolate and less obvious sweetness places this smack dab in the middle of my wheelhouse--near my watches, converse and left behind bras. — 6 years ago
