Wine Advocate
Margerum Wine Company, 2016 Margerum 'M5' Rhone Blend

"A 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."

VINEYARDS Grapes selected from vineyards in Santa Ynez Valley; Ballard Canyon; Santa Maria Valley; Los Alamos; and Foxen Canyon. Due to the hot and dry summer, veraison occurred fairly early. Vines were stressed, creating intense flavor, and low brix.

VINIFICATION AND AGING Each varietal was pressed after fermentation. Aged for 10 months in French oak.
