Appearance: Opaque with dense crimson and ruby red hues. Aroma: Red fruits, dried cranberries, and jammy youthful fruits come immediately to the fore, with perfumed Grenache and rose-petal floral aromas. Mouth Feel: A solid core of dark red fruit and spicy fruit surrounded by youthful tannins. The overlying presence of Grenache flavors initially impacts the palate, followed by a finish complete with hints of jam, cocoa and dark berry contributions of Syrah and earthy Mourvèdre.

Wine AdvocateA blend of 42% Grenache, 36% Syrah, 14% Mourvèdre, 4% Counoise and 4% Cinsault that's reminiscent of a good Côtes du Rhône, the 2016 M5 opens in the glass with aromas of smoky black cherry, blackberry, spice, cassis and dried flowers. On the palate, it's juicy, medium to full-bodied and supple, with a sweet core of dark fruit, good length and a youthfully primary finish.
