Color: Ruby Red, bright Aroma: Dark plum, youthful fruits come immediately to the fore, with perfumed Grenache and rose-petal floral aromas. A whirl of assorted spices further entwines with charcuterie undertones. Palate: A firm, solid offering with an impressive grip with ripe tannins. A burst of berried Grenache flavors initially impact, followed by the black olive, licorice and dark chocolate contribution of Syrah and earthy Mourvedre.

Shows lots of personality but remains elegant, with notes of smoked pepper, raspberry, gravelly mineral and grilled herb. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Counoise and Cinsault. Drink now through 2023. 2,600 cases made.

A good value, the 2013 M5 checks in with a Southern Rhone-like blend of 51% Grenache, 32% Syrah, 12% Mourvedre and the rest Counoise and Cinsault that spent nine months in older French oak. Juicy, lively and deliciously quaffable, with a quality Cotes du Rhone feel to its Bing cherry, dried herbs and dried flower aromas and flavors, it's medium-bodied, lightly textured and easy drinking.

Juicy red berry, currant and cola aromas jump out of the glass along with sweet tobacco and leather. The flavors in this blend of 51% Grenache, 32% Syrah, 12% Mourvèdre, 4% Counoise and 1% Cinsault aren't as boisterous, with rose petal soda, root beer and iced coffee, proving light but with a leathery grip.
