Boyanci 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Inspire, Napa Valley
“Boyanci” is a combining of Kevin Boyer’s and Tom Steffanci’s names but it’s also a homonym for an uplifting quality. Sourcing first rate Napa Valley fruit and bringing in superstar Winemaker Mia Klein their goal was simple. Create top quality Cab and “lifting people up” by giving back. They donate a portion of BOYANCI revenue toward non-profit causes that uplift lives. Grapes are sourced from both hillside and valley floor vineyards to build a Cabernet with concentration and weight, yet without harsh tannins or heat. The wine aged in 80% new French oak barrels and 20% 1 year old French oak barrels for 17 months and then was bottled unfiltered and unfined. It shows aroma’s of blueberry, strawberry and clove mixed with toasted almonds. On the palate it’s rich and vibrant with bold black cherry, cocoa and blueberry tones, supple tannins and a long finish. On Sale!!
