The 2007 Sloan, now in bottle, has lived up to the extraordinary quality it exhibited from barrel. A world-class, perfumed nose of charcoal, espresso roast, white chocolate, black currants, sweet plums, Asian soy and a Grave-like scorched earth aroma soars from the glass of this dense purple-colored wine. Full-bodied and seamlessly constructed with a multidimensional mouthfeel as well as a phenomenal finish, this 2007 carries considerable tannin, but at present it is concealed by the wine’s luxurious levels of fruit, glycerin and intensity. This spectacular 2007 should drink well for 25-30+ years. (RP)
A nose of sweet tobacco, coffee, chocolate, berries, and spices. Full bodied, with a delicious center palate of Christmas cakes, mulberries, chocolate, and pie crust. This is powerful and layered, intense, with a long finish.
Saturated bright ruby. Superripe, exotic scents of black raspberry, truffle, coffee/mocha and caramel oak, with an exotic note of coconut emerging with extended aeration. Plush, dense, moderately sweet and superconcentrated, with its velvety, seamless dark raspberry and mineral flavors complicated by spices. Tannins are firm, dusty and nicely integrated, showing no aggressiveness. Finishes very long, with lingering spice character. This very full but also solidly structured wine was already rich and pliant in its early years. (ST)
