Boyanci Red Blend St. Helena Inspire 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

InSpire 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon The 2007 InSpire is classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, big and bold, yet balanced and refined. Ultra-ripe blueberry, blackberry and cassis are evident in the nose along with aromas of vanilla and dark chocolate. InSpire is dense and rich on the palate with excellent structure and an amazingly long, layered finish.

BOYANCI was created in 2006 by industry veterans Kevin BOYer and Tom SteffANCI. More than just a combination of our two last names, the brand is quite literally about "buoyancy". Our motto, as printed on all of our bottles is "BE UPLIFTING". This is the thread represented in everything we do, from the wines we create, to the charitable organizations and sustainable projects that we support around the globe. We are committed to giving 10% of all profits to charitable projects as well as a more significant portion of our time and energy. Our first charitable partner is Coprodeli, and we will be taking a volunteer group to Peru in April to support them and their amazing initiatives. Please visit them as www.coprodeliusa.org or on their Coprodeli facebook page to learn more Currently, BOYANCI has two wines both crafted by famed winemaking goddess Mia Klein. Our flagship, Napa Valley Red Blend showcases our mountain vineyards and represents the best wine we can make in a given vintage. Only 200 cases are made each year. We also produce a Napa Valley Cabernet named InSpire (we call it "son of BOYANCI") which is a combination of mountain and valley fruit and focuses on the power and richness of Napa Valley Cabernet with a silky, elegant finish.

Ripe and jammy. Very nice throughout, but finished a tad sour and young. Some hints of green apple which I attribute to it's youth. more time should round it out nicely. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 3/6/10

Classic Napa Cabernet... very good now. But I'm thinking even better in a few years... Mia Klein is the winemaker on this first release.

Second wine project from people that make BOYANCI. Mia Klein is winemaker I think. Really rich and deep fruit but surprisingly no bitter tannins at all. Finished long and silky. REALLY well made wine that will only get better with age. Keep your eyes on this producer in the coming years

Quickly rose to my top 10 list! Great structure, fabulous fruit and NOT overly oaked - exactly what Napa Cabernet should be. A new bar has been set, and it's drinking great now.
