Dark red, 50% opaque. Taste was dusty a phrase I associate far more with AHB than with my own pen and large. Acidity on tongue. Big and long, red plum. Actually, very long.

M67: Dark red with 50% opacicty. I got the signature mint leaves on the nose and entry was a burst of smooth cough mixture that sadly goes too soon for my liking leaving a fairly long bitter orange finish....quite complex but none the less a nice wine with typical Martinez signatures.

Mature red, showing bricking on the rim, 20% opaque. Slight heat shows on the nose, but with lots of juniper and pine. Medium bodied impact, light and dominated by modest but mature fruit with a hint of tannin and white pepper. Some heat on the aftertaste, then a pleasant and chewy mint and dark chocolate length that turns to a long strawberry jam. 84/100.
