Six years ago we produced a very small quantity of this wine from the first harvest from our friends and neighbors, Cathy & Rick Osgood. The wine turned out fantastic, selling out in 2 weeks. Since then we've been begging for more fruit so that we can produce more of this great wine. This year we’ve made twice as much so more of our fans can grab some.
The wine has notes of tropical fruit flavors with hints of white peach and pear. It is a bright and refreshing wine with a burst of lemon zest and a delicate minerality. Another perfect summer day wine.
Ruby Tuesday (the wine) is perfect for an afternoon refreshment, brunch or shower; a versatile accompaniment to a variety of foods. Made from 100% Syrah, light and fruity but totally dry and refreshing, reminiscent of the rosés of France.
This beautiful straw color wine will catch your eye and draw you in to savor this delicious Estate Viognier. Tropical fruits, pear and floral components will entice your palate to want even more. This somewhat finicky grape ripens beautifully in our warm Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley days and cool nights. This wine is French oak barrel fermented and only 116 cases were produced.
The varietal that started it all for Boyd! After 22 months of aging in 70% new Nadalie and Taransaud barrels, the Merlot was blended with 7% Napa Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Malbec. This blend accentuates the black fruit of Merlot with vanilla overtones that express the deep rich flavors of our vineyard.
Some of the worlds most highly regarded wines are from the Right Bank of Bordeaux and are a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. (Sorry Miles in Sideways got it wrong) The Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley is similar in many ways to the Right Bank in that it is the perfect growing region for these two noble grape varieties. This new wine, is a 50/50 blend of our estate grown Cabernet Franc and Merlot that has been aged in French Oak barrels for 22 months. It is a very special wine with the spicy notes from the Merlot and the silky texture and blueberry notes from the Cabernet Franc.
Our Estate Cabernet Franc offers beautiful varietal notes of dark cherry, raspberry and red currant with hints of tobacco leaf and graphite. This is a concentrated, yet elegant, wine that showcases the complexity of great Cabernet Franc. The nose offers a beautiful combination of red fruits, sage, white pepper and lavender, with additional layers of plum, roasted coffee and cedar. The palate is supple and mouth filling, with velvety tannins underscoring flavors of sweet cherry, blackberry, chocolate and cassis. This wine spent 22 months in French Oak barrels and only 103 cases were produced.
Our Syrah is deep, dark and brooding with high notes of peach and hints of black licorice. Co-fermented with 4% Viognier, this wine has a delicious floral component. Vivid color and distinctly ripe, youthful Rhone character shines bright with violets, charcuterie, oak and vanilla spices. Sweet blue fruit and silky tannins with a dash of bacon fat create a round, deliciously fresh palate like stream-polished stones. Post fermentation the grapes were pressed into Francois Freres and Seguin Moreau French oak barrels and aged 14 months. Only 157 cases produced.
The original name of the Malbec grape was Cot, which we considered using for this wine. Instead, we call it EntreCOTe which is French for a ribeye steak . . . which happens to pair perfectly with this wine. To add roundness and complexity we blended in Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to produce a wine with character and grace. It is full bodied yet not overpowering and enjoyable with cheeses or your favorite cut of steak!
