$249.99 USD

Winemaker Notes
The latest release of the iconic M5 Cabernet opens with a complex layering of savory-sweet and mountain flora notes, violet, cardamom, black currant, oak moss and California bay leaf. The palate – with the power and depth of a wine from red rocky mountain soils – extends those elements with luscious dark fruits, blackberry, and black raspberry carried by tannins that are both robust and plush. Pair with beef tenderloin in a horseradish, garlic sauce or pasta carbonara. Drink now through 2040.

Rated 95+ Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
As close to black as purple can get, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon M5 Stagecoach Vineyard boasts initially closed aromas of cassis, sage and cedar. Full-bodied and intense, it's nevertheless fairly well-behaved, with fine-grained tannins, a pleasant, streamlined shape on the palate, and a long, gently dusty finish. While it demands some time in the cellar, patience will undoubtedly be rewarded.
