This estate wine is bright, crisp and refreshing with hints of green apple, grapefruit and lemon. Perfect on a warm summer day on its own or paired with fresh oysters, sushi or seafood. Light and fresh with crisp acidity. The mouthfeel is crisp with a slight minerality that tingles on the tongue and tantalizes the taste buds.
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.

The varietal that started it all for Boyd Family Vineyards! After aging in 70% Nadalie and Taransaud barrels for 22 months, the Merlot was blended with 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Malbec from the Napa Valley. This blend accentuates the black fruit of Merlot with vanilla overtones that express the deep rich flavors of our vineyard.
The Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley is similar in many ways to the Right Bank in Bordeaux in that it is the perfect growing region for Merlot and Cabernet Franc. This wine is a 50/50 blend of our estate grown Cabernet Franc and Merlot that has been afed 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.
Since we first planted the vineyard in 1999 we have grown Malbec, selling most of it to other wineries and using a small amount ourselves for blending. Finally we decided keep the grapes and to produce a Malbec. The original name of the Malbec grape was Cot, which we considered using for this wine. Instead, however, we call it EntreCOTe which is French for a ribeye steak...which also 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's full bodied yet not overpowering and enjoyable with cheeses or your favorite steak.
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.
Fruit from the Speedy Creek Vineyard in Knights Valley has created this luscious wine.

It all comes to a close with a long layered finish. Aged for 18 months in French Oak barrels.
