Another drool worthy Napa cult. Beaming, pillared and utterly sumptuous - am explosion of black fruited goodness, without feeling out of the reigns. Young, but a pleasure to drink.

Voluptuous is the first word that comes to mind with this big Cab. A medley of aromas with plum, cinnamon, tar and mocha infused dark berries.

Mini vertical of Sloan from 2008 - 2010. Brilliant expression of Rutherford. The 2008 was the temptress on the nose with deep, brambly accents - the 2010 was reserved and elegant, with layers of fruit - but the star of the show was the 2009 with her complexity and depth on the palette. Excellent trio

Deep dark fruit, leather, ink dark color, full bodied. The 2007 has a bigger bolder fruit palate but this is right on point.
