    July 7, 2015 - sadly corked.

    March 15, 2011 - while this was not defective, it certainly was vile. Vegetal on the nose and throughout the whole experience. Bummer because there seemed to be good fruit levels.

    January 12, 2010 - A bit bummed...not too surprised

    December 24, 2006 - Slightly odd pruney aroma that carried through on the palate. Still some fruit and nice enough to drink, but nothing like the modern HSSs.

  • buckeye76 wrote: (92 points)

    September 22, 2006 - RED BROWN ON THE EDGE. LEATHER, MINT, AND BLACKBERRY IN THE NOSE WITH A FLAVOR TO MATCH WITH BLACKBERRIES, BLACK CHERRIES, AND MINT. MEDIUM TO LONG FINISH.
