From the famed vineyard formerly known as Keefer Ranch, Senses Wines bring you the MCM88 Pinot Noir; an exuberant Russian River single vineyard Pinot Noir from the block originally farmed by Kosta Browne. This is their boldest Pinot noir yet and it comes from a very special block in a very special vineyard now known as Perry Ranch. This addition to the Senses family stands apart from its’ siblings with greater concentration and richness. The Senses team is very excited about this wine and have named it accordingly: MCM stands for Max, Chris and Myles and doubles for the roman numerals of 1900, which when added to ‘88 marks their birth year of 1988.
“Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir MCM88 gives exuberant black raspberries, mulberries and crushed blueberries notes with hints of baking spices, anise, chocolate box, and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with generous black and blue fruits with plenty of spicy accents and a refreshing line, finishing long and silken textured.” – Lisa Perrotti-Brown of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 94 pts.
