Margerum M5 Santa Barbara County 2015
VM90: "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."
Margerum Wine Company was founded in 2001 in a tiny cold room behind Brander Vineyards by Doug Margerum. They source grapes from their 18-acre Estate Vineyard, planted exclusively with Rhone grape varietals, and other top vineyards around Santa Barbara County. M5 is a super tasty blend inspired by numerous wines that Doug has tasted and loved. Impressively complex and fresh.
