Tasting Notes
This Pinot Noir has well-balanced aromas that showcase a range of fruit, earth and spice.  Red and black cherries, dried strawberries, brown sugar, and tree bark are distributed throughout the nose.  Medium weight on the palate with moderate acidity, fine tannins and a juicy core.  Flavors of seeded blackberry jam, black cherry, cocoa, and a hint of cinnamon lead to a dark chocolate-laced linger finish. 
 
 
This California Pinot takes its name from a line in Moby Dick by Herman Melville: “For there is no folly of the beast of the earth that is not infinitely outdone by the madness of men.”  The “madness” behind this wine is said to be the ability to deliver a great quality Pinot Noir at an affordable price—which we, at Red Feet, believe to be true!
