Winemaker's Notes

Opaque with dense crimson and ruby reds. On the nose there are aromas of dark plum, dried cranberries, and spiciness; youthful fruits come immediately to the fore, with perfumed Grenache and rose-petal floral aromas combined with earthy notes and charcuterie undertones. 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 licorice, cocoa and dark chocolate contributions of Syrah and earthy Mourvedre.

Blend: 41% Grenache, 37% Syrah, 14% Mourvedre, 4% Counoise, and 4% Cinsaut

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Made from 41% Grenache, 37% Syrah, 14% Mourvedre and the rest Counoise and Cinsault that spent ten months in French oak, the 2014 M5 offers classic notes of underbrush, peppery herbs and some meatiness to go with a core of black raspberry and cassis fruit, medium-bodied richness and solid underlying tannic grip. It’s a charming, complex effort to enjoy over the coming 4-5 years. (JD)  (8/2016)
