04, 05, 06 Sloan- All quite different. Not a bad way to kick off the night.

Like a dusty road. Just needs air and time. @David L thank you!

Balance, power and finesse. I don't think this approaches the '01, '05 or '07 for me but it is an exceptionally well made wine. A rich texturally sexy wine reminiscent of Harlan. This only lacked some mid palate softness and the finish was slightly hot but nothing air wouldn't have remedied had it not been gurgled down so quickly. The puppy is named Sloan btw....met him today in an interesting coincidental encounter and shared the bottle with his owner. Least I could do. I love puppies πŸ˜‰πŸ·πŸΆπŸ‘©πŸΌ

Beautiful right out of the bottle. Fruit is so well balanced - great effort!

At the edge of my ripeness tolerance, but not crossing it, and without too much oak to push it over the edge.

Had on Mother's Day. Dad was given these as a gift. A bold dark wine. Cocoa, coffee toffee all that jazz. Certainly this is in a league of its own and for that reason I don't often have wines like this. What a ridiculous price point but it's good.

Sloan, is a go to at any family event. One of my favorite California vintners who's bottling, labeling, & wine live up to the image they project. This is a wine you look forward to drinking as soon as you see the label.
