Another Stunning bottle! Perfect balance, hard to think this is the second wine. More progressed than its parent but very well put together.

Very heavy, harsh, gripping tannins. The stand-out aspect of this wine was the intense purity of the coffee flavor on the tongue. There was some black currant, boysenberry, and chocolate... but it was the coffee that struck me as phenomenal.

About This Producer


Location alone is enough to draw attention to this wine - the vineyards are perched upon a picturesque hill above the renowned Auberge du Soleil - but the added value of having David Abreu plant the vineyards and Mark Aubert as the founding winemaker ties it all together into a package destined for stardom. The inaugural vintage, 2000, came out in 2004, with huge concentration, brilliant fruit integrity and a rich, complex character. The incredible structure of the Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend comes from the balanced integration of the exquisite 100% Rutherford estate fruit and the obsessive attention to detail in the vineyard and cellar. Martha McClellan is current winemaker, under whose guidance Sloan continues in the young tradition that earned it a 100-point score from Robert Parker for the 2002 vintage.
