International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 132

($245) Bright, saturated ruby. Complex, superripe nose hints at chocolate, smoke, dried herbs, soy sauce and leather, along with a dried fruit character suggesting some surmaturite Rich, broad and fine-grained, but much less sweet than the 2002. A firm spine of acidity gives this structured wine a slightly spiky quality today. Finishes with granular, tongue-dusting tannins that are less pliant than those of the 2002.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 207

The 20003 was made by Martha McClellan and the viticulture looked over by David Abreu. The 2003 Sloan, if slightly less prodigious than the perfect 2002, remains a young wine. Notes of vanillin, espresso roast, blackberries, scorched earth, camphor and hints of charcoal and barbecue meat jump from the glass of this spicy, rich, provocative Cabernet Sauvignon. With a full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet tannin and adequate acidity, the blend includes 14% Cabernet Franc and 86% Cabernet Sauvignon from this extraordinary hillside vineyard above Auberge de Soleil in mid-Napa Valley. This wine is 2-5 years away from full maturity, and should last for another decade.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Dark, plush, intense and concentrated, with a deep core of ripe currant, blackberry, wild berry and cassis. The well-integrated oak has a roasted coffee flavor, and though this is quite tannic, the tannins are ripe. Ends with a long, persistent finish.

Come on 80, really? You may not be a fan but that is absurd. This wine has good fruit, a bit smokey with dark earthy flavor. Very textured with good finish.
