Boyanci Red Blend St. Helena 2006
BOYANCI 2006 Red Blend The palate weaves explosive flavors of rich fruit similar to the aromas, a rich lush mouth feel and amazing length. Tannins are well integrated and the wine has a solid backbone and excellent structure. An artful blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Syrah, 13% Petite Verdot, 5% Merlot, and 3% Cabernet Franc, this wine can be enjoyed early and will only improve from extended cellar time.
This is as close to Californian perfection as you can get. Big and bold. You can't taste the well integrated 14.9% alcohol, but it sure packs a punch. This must be eaten with a thick juicy steak. This can be a sipper but I highly recommend a huge food pairing. Enjoy it with a nice expensive cigar after dinner. Lots of black cherry and nutmeg. The finish lingers until the next sip. Just a truly remarkable wine that was made with a lot of care and love.
Wow. Unbelievable depth and richness to this Napa Blend. From mountain vineyards supposedly, but incredibly elegant for a mostly Cabernet Blend. Had this at Ruth's Chris Steak House last night, somm suggested it for me
THIS WINE IS LEGENDARY!! Boyanci has an incredible supple balance that over delivers for the price, if you can get your hands on it............stock up!! Definitely in my top 2 ever tasted. Can't wait to taste Inspire, their new label. I also read that a portion of their profits go to a non-profit....great wine, and great philosophy!
