February 7, 2016 - This is very special stuff. Sweet red berry aromas with pretty floral edge and light vanilla creme. Ripe focused red fruit basket with silky mouths taking density. Smooth and seamless in a very feminine way. Long finish with plenty of layers and lip smacking yumminess.

August 7, 2015 - Wow! Huge wine! A little closed down and backwards relative to the regular '01 HSS that I had last year, but still as big as Cabernet gets! Probably won't open another one for at least 5 years.

Sleek dark dusty sweet blackberries. Very nice density. Likely at peak.
Long sophisticated wine, showing lots of subtle qualities. Drinking great. polished with nice gripe Chololate cherriy flavors dominate. Very special stuff. 97
