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.

(no new oak): Bright ruby. Vibrant, mineral-accented aromas of red and dark berries, cherry and tarragon, with a subtle floral note in the background. Nervy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show very good clarity and tangy acidity. Finishes with a bright mineral quality and a red berry skin note.

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.
