    July 28, 2016 - My second bottle of this and my thoughts on it hasn't changed. It was served as part of a NYC Steakhouse Shafer wine night with 10 people. It was decanted and served last, so it was able to sit for over an hour before we poured it. It still tasted a bit young, even at this age. It was eons better than the 2011 HSS that we had before it.

    May 29, 2016 - Excellent cabernet. Drank with steak. Full-bodied, good structure and balance.

    May 22, 2015 - Cruising the Oceans; 5/17/2015-5/24/2015: Decanted for 2 hours but could have more. Vegetal with green pepper on the nose.

    Dark chocolate and rich body with a hint of heat. A finish of berries in the long finish
