Berkshire Red Wine Joyride

About the Wine

Rich, elegant, and complex. Opens with vibrant berries, layers of sweet jam, and hits of pepper.  Compared to our 2013 vintage, which we described as earthy and Burgundian, the 2014 vintage is much more in the full bodied, West Coast style.

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.
