  • 2018 Madson Toyon Vineyard "Les Enfants des Nuages" Pinot Noir 94ts
    Santa Cruz Mountains
    Expand
    Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Terrific, whole-cluster driven aromas of musk, spice and burnt tobacco infusing purple berry fruits. Mid-weight plus in style, with an impressive charge of purple grapes and purple berry fruits infused with spice. Plush in the mouth, yet bright with acidity, finishing with minimal tannins and refreshing tartness. Even more enjoyable when tasted several ours after opening. A heartthrob. Score: 94
    Suggested Retail Price: $60
  • 2019 Madson Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir 94pts
    Santa Cruz Mountains
    Expand
    Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Aromas of black cherry, dried herbs, white pepper and pipe smoke. Light to mid-weight in style, offering flavors of dark red cherry and a hint of whole cluster inspired goodness. Very silky with gentle tannins. Needs time to open up so consider decanting. Score: 94
    Suggested Retail Price: $36

    Moderate garnet color in the glass. Deep aromas of darker stone and berry fruits with added scents of exotic spices and burnt tobacco. Very pleasing in the mouth, with middleweight flavors of well-spiced darker stone and berry fruits with whole cluster driven additions of tea and floral blossom. Nice harmony, exhibiting a good cut of acidity and soothing tannins. The wine finishes crisp and juicy. Score: 93
    Suggested Retail Price: $60

Description

Madson Wines farms a small portfolio of vineyards around the Santa Cruz Mountains. These vineyards are ocean-exposed and are perched at high elevations. At Madson, we farm organically and regeneratively.  Winemaking is comprised of native yeast fermentations and neutral oak élevage. We do not add anything to the wines besides a small amount of SO2 at bottling. Ultimately, our goal is to make wine that speaks of our place here in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
