Winemaker Notes

M Red Wine is a rich and layered Bordeaux blend that balances the density and power of Marcian vineyard’s Cabernet Sauvignon with the silky texture and perfumed aromatics of their best blocks of Cabernet Franc. This wine’s lush flavors and supple structure make it generous in its youth while allowing the wine to age gracefully for many years to come.

Critical Acclaim

RP95 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This was tasted as a barrel sample. A blend of Bordeaux varieties, the 2017 M by Marciano has a deep garnet-purple color and comes strutting out of the glass with the most gorgeous perfume of lilacs, red roses and baking spices, over a core of warm cassis, blackberry pie and preserved blueberries with wafts of pencil shavings and black loam. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is elegantly crafted with a quiet intensity and compelling tension, textured with beautifully fine-grained tannins, finishing long and fragrant.

The 2017 M Proprietary Red Wine is tighter and more focused, with a classic 2017 savory, mineral style as well as full-bodied richness, a great mid-palate, building tannins, and beautiful notes of blackcurrants, plums, tobacco, toasted spice, and lead pencil nuances. A blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon mixed with 25% Cabernet Franc and 13% Merlot, it’s a brilliant 2017 to enjoy over the coming 15-20 years.
