Sloan-Estate-Bordeaux-Blend-Napa-2010

Sloan Estate, Bordeaux Blend (Napa), 2010

“The 2010 Sloan may ultimately eclipse the 2009 as it appears to have greater longevity. Dense blackberry, cedar, lead pencil shavings, cassis, espresso, white chocolate and forest floor notes are incredibly complex and inviting. Full-bodied and virtually perfect in all senses with flawlessly integrated acidity, tannin, alcohol and wood, this is a tour de force and one of the superstars of the vintage. It, too, can be drunk now or cellared for 30+ years.” -Wine Advocate (99 Points)

“Bright medium red. Restrained but deep aromas of cassis, mocha, brown sugar, smoke, espresso and dusty brown spices. Wonderfully silky and voluptuous despite the recent bottling, but also shows terrific verve to the flavors of black cherry, minerals and menthol. More about finesse than thickness of texture. Finishes very long and vibrant, with suave, seamless, broad tannins and compelling perfume. This will be approachable early but has the stuffing and balance for a graceful evolution in bottle.” -Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar (95 Points)
