98 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate (October 2013)

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.

96 Antonio Galloni, Vinous (December 2012)

The 2009 SLOAN ESTATE has fleshed out beautifully since last year. Exciting and totally voluptuous, the 2009 covers every inch of the palate with layers of mocha-infused dark fruit. The 2009 boasts striking inner perfume and sweetness, with generous plum, cinnamon, melted road tar and Christmas cake notes that wrap around the highly expressive finish. I imagine the 2009 is a vintage that will enjoy a broad window of drinkability starting pretty much upon release. The 2009 is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. SLOAN fans will note the Merlot is a little higher than normal in 2009.

95 Stephen Tanzer, Vinous (March 2019)

Deep ruby-red; little sign of development. Sexy aromas of black raspberry, cassis, tobacco, spices and caramel oak. Wonderfully plush and glossy yet firm on the palate, with its intense dark berry, plum and spice flavors enlivened by minerality. Already a fleshy and seamless mouthful but this wine has the sheer concentration, grip and ripe tannic support for another 15 to 20 years of graceful evolution. Splendid!
