WS96 A wine of presence and personality, with dynamic black raspberry and guava flavors that take on stony mineral and dusky spice accents as this gathers richness and tension toward broad-shouldered tannins. Best from 2022 through 2032. From Oregon. —T.F.
Estate Notes: Symbolizing a dark winter’s night, Slope exhibits aromas of blueberry cobbler, wet concrete, lavender, and root beer with flavors of braised meat, rose petal, and rhubarb.
