99 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate (October 2013)

The 2010 Sloan may ultimately eclipse the 2009 as it appears to have greater longevity. Dense blackberry, cedar, lead pencil shavings, cassis, espresso, white chocolate and forest floor notes are incredibly complex and inviting. Full-bodied and virtually perfect in all senses with flawlessly integrated acidity, tannin, alcohol and wood, this is a tour de force and one of the superstars of the vintage.

It, too, can be drunk now or cellared for 30+ years.

96+ Antonio Galloni, Vinous (November 2013)

The 2010 Sloan Estate is just as gorgeous from bottle as it was from barrel. Violets, graphite, smoke, licorice, plum and cedar notes jump from the glass in the 2010 Sloan Estate. Rich, sumptuous and layered, the 2010 impresses for its balance and class.

Today the tannins are a bit firm, so readers should give the 2010 at least a few years in bottle. With time in the glass, the 2010 is quite stunning though. The blend is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and a splash of Petit Verdot.
