93 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "[$29 list] The 2018, Doug Margerum's Grenache-based blend, is fabulous. A burst of sweet berry fruit and floral notes give this racy red so much immediacy, not to mention incredible appeal. Medium in body, with no hard edges and terrific purity of expression, M5 is a winner. Drink: 2020-2027. (Aug 2020)"

92 points and 'Editors' Choice,' Wine Enthusiast: "Doug Margerum's flagship blend of 47% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 9% Mourvèdre, 2% Counoise and 2% Cinsaut 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. Alcohol 14.7%. (12/31/19)"

90 points Wine Spectator: "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. 2,300 cases made. (4/30/20)"
