Critical Acclaim

"This is a beautiful young Cabernet blend, ripe and floral, dark-hued and rich yet elegant in its mouthfeel, with pure, fleshy currant, cassis, blackberry and toasty vanilla scents from oak. Impeccably balanced, complex and concentrated, the finish keeps pumping out subtle flavor nuances that have remarkable staying power."
93 Points

"An impressive effort in a troublesome vintage, the 2000 Sloan (310 cases) is a sign of things to come from this budding superstar. An opaque blue/purple color is accompanied by beautiful aromas of smoky cassis, high quality cigar tobacco, melted licorice, and roasted espresso. This dense, full-bodied, rich 2000 exhibits a creamy texture, well-integrated tannin, and remarkable unctuosity, a characteristic found in few 2000s. Notes of chocolate emerge as the wine sits in the glass."
