Folly of the Beast 2016

Folly of the Beast is impossibly good, 100% Pinot Noir, and proof that a little madness pays off. It’s our mission – our madness, if you will – to consistently deliver impossibly good 100% Pinot Noir at an unrivaled price. To create this white whale of the wine world, we went to California’s Central Coast - where the foggy mornings and cool evenings have a favorable effect on the heartbreaker grape. A certain amount of skill and tenacity is essential to produce a Pinot of this stature - and Folly of the Beast is proof that a little madness pays off. Aged in 33% new French oak for 12 months to enhance notes of sweet spice, this round Pinot pairs nicely with pork, poultry and cheeses.
