Sloan Proprietary Red 2002, 750mL (WA100, WS99) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Sloan Proprietary Red

750mL

Vintage: 2002
Region: US
Appellation: Rutherford, Napa

WA100, WS99
Rated 100 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The perfect score does not surprise me since I had given this wine a three-digit rating after bottling. However, I was surprised by how evolved and complex the 2002 has become. Compared to some of the other high scoring 2002s, Sloan`s offering seems to be on a faster evolutionary track. There is nothing wrong with that, but based on this one bottle, this blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot can be drunk now or cellared for another 10-12 years. I do not think it will be one of the blockbuster, extremely long-lived wines of the vintage, but I could be wrong, because everything is in perfect balance. It offers a dense plum/garnet/purple color, a sweet nose of roasted espresso, chocolate, spring flowers, blackberries, black currants and new saddle leather, an opulent, voluptuous texture, gorgeous, layered flavors, lots of glycerin, sweet, silky tannin and a phenomenal finish. If you own any of this beauty, don`t hesitate to drink it.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate
