Joyride Reserve 2012

About the Wine

Exceptionally well balanced and silky smooth.  The reserve version of our very popular JoyrideTM Pinot Noir doesn’t grab your attention through big tannins, but through the subtle complexities that reveal themselves as the wine goes from the front to back of the palette.  The slight briary notes (typical of pinot noir), pair well with the rich and vibrant cherry.

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.
