96 points "96 points Wine Spectator: "A stunning wine, dark, rich, immense and concentrated, with youthful, grapey Cabernet aromas of crème de cassis, currant and wild berry, it turns supple and elegant on the palate, revealing uncommon richness, depth and concentration, and finishing with a long, detailed aftertaste that picks up melted dark chocolate and hazelnut flavors. Best from 2006 through 2016. 500 cases made. (2004)" " Best 2006-2016

99 points " 99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The practically perfect 2001 Sloan (only the second effort released by Stuart Sloan) is aging magnificently. Made from very young vines planted on the steep hillsides above the Auberge du Soleil in Central Napa Valley, it exhibits a dense purple color with only a slight lightening at the edge as well as a phenomenal nose of burning embers, white chocolate, espresso roast, black currants and graphite. Full-bodied with an expansive, broad, creamy texture as well as a voluptuous finish, the wine has shed a lot of its tannin and is just beginning to hit its plateau of full maturity where it should stay for another 15-25+ years. This is a great terroir and at age ten, the 2001 confirms the accolades I bestowed upon it eight years ago." (06/2011) " Best 2014-2032
