Alcohol/vol 14%
Opaque with dense crimson and ruby red hues. Aromas of red fruits, dried cranberries and jammy youthful fruits come immediately to the fore, with perfumed Grenache and rose petal floral aromas. The palate is a solid core of dark red fruit and spicy fruit surrounded by youthful tannins. The overlying presence of Grenache flavors initially impact the palate, followed by a finish complete with hints of jam, cocoa and dark berry contributions of Syrah and earthy Mourvèdre.

Doug Margerum is capturing the freshness of Rhône varieties like few others in California, as evidenced in this twist-top blend of 44% Grenache, 37% Syrah, 11% Mourvèdre, 4% Counoise and 4% Cinsaut. Aromas of zesty rosewater, raspberry and a hint of smoke lead into a palate that's zippy with joyous flavors of red fruit, sumac and white pepper.

A blend of 44% Grenache, 37% Syrah, 11% Mourvèdre, 4% Counoise and 4% Cinsaut, the 2017 M5 is pale to medium ruby-purple with warm blueberries, violet and a hint of herbs in the background plus turned earth, tar and black fruits. Light to medium-bodied, it features earthy dark fruits in the mouth with soft texture and juicy acidity on the finish.
