Vintage Notes

From the famed vineyard formerly known as Keefer Ranch, we bring you the ‘MCM88’ Pinot noir; an exuberant Russian River single vineyard Pinot noir from the block originally farmed by Kosta Browne. Our boldest Pinot noir yet 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. We are very excited about this wine and have named it accordingly: MCM stands for Max, Christopher and Myles and doubles for the roman numerals of 1900, which when added to ‘88 marks our birth year of 1988. 

Winemaker Notes

“The Senses 2021 MCM88 Pinot Noir is medium to deep ruby-purple in color. After a swirl or two, the nose explodes with alluring notes of cherry pie, blackberry preserves, wild blueberries, and chocolate mint, followed by an undercurrent of wet slate and star anise. Full-bodied, the decadently opulent palate delivers a velvety texture and fabulous tension to support the generous black and blue fruit layers, finishing long with a minty kick.”- 95pts, Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW
