Berkshire Red Wine Joyride

About the Wine

Super elegant with notes of ripe cherry and raspberry, a dash of vanilla, a hint of mushroom, and just a touch of well integrate toasted oak.  A really classic “Burgundian” style Pinot Noir.

The Story

Grand theft moped with a cheerleading accomplice makes for an enduring family legend (as well as an inspired name). This wine salutes a certain bobbysoxer whose poor father’s moped was swiped right before her eyes while on top of the pyramid. Leaving the key in the ignition may have made the heist just a little easier. We have never given up hope of finding it.
