Margerum 2018 M5 Red Santa Barbara County
Margerum 2018 M5 Red Santa Barbara County
Margerum 2018 M5 Red Santa Barbara County

M5 is Margerum's Flagship wine. It is modeled after top wines from southern Rhone – Châteauneuf-du-Pape . The M is for Margerum & the 5 is for 5 grapes: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, and Counoise. M5 is a Grenache based blend & has elegance and layers making it a versatile table and food wine. 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.

"Doug Margerum's flagship blend of 47% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 9% Mourvèdre, 2% Counoise and 2% Cinsault is bright, delicious and easy to guzzle. Fresh lively aromas of wild strawberry, simmering pomegranate sauce, mint and peppercorns lead into a palate of berries, plum, thyme and marjoram. It is crisp while complex."

"The Southern Rhône-like blend from this estate, the 2018 M5 Santa Barbara County checks in as 47% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 9% Mourvèdre, and the rest equal parts Counoise and Cinsault. Deep purple-colored, with notes of mulled black cherries, black raspberries, ground pepper, licorice, and underbrush, it's medium to full-bodied, has beautiful fruit, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It would do just fine in a blind lineup of Châteauneuf du Pape."

Wine Spectator - 90 Points
"Fresh and plump, with youthful fruit, offering bright cherry and smoked spice flavors that take on elegant layers, finishing with polished tannins. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Counoise and Cinsault. Drink now through 2028."
