Berkshire Red Wine Joyride

About the Wine

The West Coast style Joyride Pinot Noir 2016 thunders with big, jammy red fruit, a rich tannin structure, and hints of mushroom and sweet wood.  Great aging potential.  It is drinking beautifully right now, but should be decanted before serving.

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.
