Boyanci Red Blend St. Helena Inspire 2007
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.
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.
