Tasted blind. Deep purple. Opaque. Exotic nose with notes of eucalyptus, plum, spice and menthol. Ethereal. Rich in the mouth. Seemed old at first but with air this blossomed. Still young and vibrant. Really nice. Exotic. Guessed Heitz Martha Vineyards 70's.

Signature notes of eucalyptus are just leaping out of the glass backed by cassis. Beautifully balanced.

Really shows the famous Martha’s mint aromatically, somewhat dry and still very structured on the palate and into the solid finish, very good but not as fine as the Martha’s from the 1970s.

This was supposed to be much better vibtage than the 98. But we found it to be much juicier and bright with less mid range than the 98. Martha's Vineyard is always exceptional and unmistakably Martha's. But probably wouldn't buy this vintage again. On the other hand I'd like to try it in 10 more years. This has a LOT of life left in it. It was still big and fruity. Really surprising.
