Vinous, September 2017
(93 points) The 2016 M5, Margerum's Grenache/Syrah-based wine, is lifted and gracious, with generous Grenache red-toned fruit leading the way. Medium in body and understated, the 2016 finishes with terrific energy and verve.

(92 points) This blend of 48% Grenache Blanc, 14% Roussanne, 14% Viognier, 12% Marsanne and 12% Vermentino is one of the best and zippiest white Rhône-inspired blends on the market right now.

(92 points) This blend of 48% Grenache Blanc, 14% Roussanne, 14% Viognier, 12% Marsanne and 12% Vermentino is one of the best and zippiest white Rhône-inspired blends on the market right now. Its clean nose offers key lime, grapefruit pith and gunpowder tea aromas. The palate is grippy and fresh, with zesty lime skin and the slight bubblegum flavors.

(92 points) The 2016 M5 checks in as a blend of 44% Grenache, 36% Syrah, 12% Mourvèdre, 5% Counoise, 3% Cinsault that was brought up in neutral oak. This deep ruby/purple-tinged effort is a medium to full-bodied, ripe... (92 points) The 2016 M5 checks in as a blend of 44% Grenache, 36% Syrah, 12% Mourvèdre, 5% Counoise, 3% Cinsault that was brought up in neutral oak. This deep ruby/purple-tinged effort is a medium to full-bodied, ripe, beautifully textured effort that has rock star notes of black cherries, black raspberries, scorched earth, and peppery herbs. Incredibly charming, with notable purity and a great texture, drink it over the coming 4-6 years.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2018
(90 points) 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... (90 points) 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.
