How long can I keep beef that's been marinating in the fridge?

When it comes to food safety, my motto has always been, "When in doubt, throw it out." I'm realizing that I've probably thrown out a lot of still-good food.

I've had a tri-tip roast marinating in my fridge for about 5 days and I've had a busy week and wasn't able to get around to roasting it. It's in a marinade of olive oil, red wine, and garlic, if that makes any difference, in a ziploc bag.

Is this still probably okay to use or should I ditch it? Haven't taken a whiff of it yet; obviously if it's foul I'll ditch it, but if it smells okay?
