The opaque purple-colored 2001 Sloan offers gorgeous aromas of espresso roast smoked meats creme de cassis blackberries damp earth and new saddle leather. Full-bodied opulent and savory with tremendous power and richness as well as an extraordinary finish this compelling Cabernet should be at its finest between 2008-2025+.

Ripe aromas of bitter cherry blueberry dark chocolate violet and brown spices. At once ripe and dry with good energy and firm structure leavened by a truffley sweetness and leather and tobacco leaf notes that reminded me of Bordeaux. A very nicely delineated juicy classically styled wine that finishes with firm tannic spine. But hardly an easy style and in need of a bit of patience. (I much preferred this to the 2000 version which was distinctly more leafy and peppery. With less flesh and depth this wine's tannins come across as a bit dry and green in the style of the vintage.)
