Classic aromas of blackcurrant, licorice, tobacco and spices. Highly concentrated, outsized and powerfully structured but seamless from the start, with lovely lift to its flavors of dark berries, licorice, minerals and brown spices. A step up in intensity from the 2008 but also considerably more tannic and masculine in style. Built for long aging, but I would not be surprised if this wine shut down in the bottle in the near future.

The 2009 Sloan possesses lots of espresso roast, chocolate fudge, baking spice, cedarwood, incense, creme de cassis, blackberry and subtle smoke characteristics. Surprisingly soft tannins are atypical for this vintage, but they work well and frame this full-bodied, concentrated, multidimensional wine. One of the finest Sloans made to date, it can be drunk now or cellared for 25-30 years.
