The Senses 2019 MCM88 Pinot Noir unveils its allure with a delicate yet captivating pale to medium ruby-purple hue, offering a glimpse into the wine's expressive nature. Upon exploration of the nose, the senses are greeted by a symphony of aromas. Black raspberries and pomegranate intertwine seamlessly with the essence of lavender, while delicate notes of rose oil and wild sage add an enchanting touch. Medium to full-bodied, the palate journey unfolds with an intensity that mirrors the vineyard's character. Layers of red and black fruit play harmoniously, revealing hints of herbs, minerals, and earth that contribute to the wine's complexity. As the experience culminates, the wine's finish is a testament to its elegant composition, offering a floral lift that lingers gracefully. The MCM88 pay homage to the three founders – Max, Christopher, and Myles – with the 88 signifying their birth year. Planted with the Mariafeld clone, the Russian River vineyard, once known as Keefer Ranch and now Perry Ranch, adds a unique dimension to this vintage. This wine embodies a harmonious blend of artistry and terroir, inviting enthusiasts to delve into its intricate tapestry of aromas, flavors, and history.

Antonio Galloni - 93 Points

"The 2019 Pinot Noir MCM 88 emerges from a section in Keefer Ranch, and is named with the initials of the three Senses founders, all of whom were born in 1988. A rich, boisterous Pinot, the MCM saturates the palate with dark red/purplish fruit, dried herbs, chocolate, new leather, menthol, spice and rose petal. This is an especially rich, heady style. The new oak still needs time to fully integrate, but there is more than enough depth to make me think that will happen."
