Winemaker Notes

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.

InSpire pairs perfectly with well-marbled steaks, full-bodied cheeses, lamb and pork dishes as well as moderately spiced cuisines.

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Fruit and oak combine in this young, sensuous wine to make for immediate drinkability, but it's ageable. Floods the mouth with ripe, forward flavors of blackberry pie with the smoky-sweet crust, and there are notes of cola, black currant liqueur and Indian spices. This is a very fine, elegant Cabernet, with superfine tannins. It should age well throughout the decade.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Firm and tightly structured, with a focused band of cedar and anise-laced currant, blackberry, wild berry, sage and herb, gaining depth while remaining elegant and refined. Complex and concentrated, with the flavors lingering on. Drink now through 2018.
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
Mia Klein blended this wine from a range of vineyard sources, producing a supple 2007. It balances fresh cherry and cherry compote flavors, deep fruit filling out the tannins. Oak age has brought out a pencil lead character in those tannins, finely tailored and firm. This should develop well over the coming years, to drink with roast squab.

BOYANCI
Kevin BOYer and Tom SteffANCI met in Napa Valley of all places during a boring corporate meeting. Tom was actually the bureaucrat that called the meeting Kevin was attending. After the meeting, we broke away to visit some wineries and talked tirelessly about the wines that blew our minds, those we hated and the ones we would make someday if we got the chance. We also talked about what we wanted to do to make a difference and how we each thought we might be able to do something meaningful. A strong friendship ensued and after a lot of talking about creating our own wine, we finally created BOYANCI. In April of 2009 we released our first ever vintage of BOYANCI, 2006 Red Blend, a 200 case project from Pritchard Hill. Our winemaker Mia Klein (one of the most heralded winemakers in Napa Valley history, formerly of Dalla Valle, Araujo Estate, Chappellet, Viader and owner of her own amazing brand, Selene) expertly crafts our atypical Bordeaux blend into a seamless expression of Napa Valley fruit and extraction with a Bordeaux like elegance.

In October of 2009 we launched our second wine, the 2007 InSpire, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. InSpire is the slightly rebellious son of BOYANCI, our flagship wine, InSpire exhibits a youthful exuberance in both its personality and the style of the wine. As you can see, we call out the “spire” in InSpire and include a "spire" on the label to signify the brands desire to reach up and help others. Just as we do with BOYANCI, we give 10% of our profits to Coprodeli , a non- profit that builds schools clinics and housing in the most impoverished areas of Peru. It was in Peru while marveling at the wonders of the ancient Incan city of Machu Picchu that we decided on the red shape at the top of our Spire.

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is sometimes referred to as the “king” of red grapes. It can be somewhat unapproachable early in its youth but has the potential to age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more at its best. Small berries and tough skins provide its trademark firm tannic grip, while high acidity helps to keep the wine fresh for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region (and in St-Emillion and Pomerol, where it plays a supporting role to Merlot). The top Médoc producers use Cabernet Sauvignon for their wine’s backbone, blending it with Merlot and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot. On its own, Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

In the Glass

High in color, tannin, and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice, and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

Perfect Pairings

Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb, and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

Sommelier Secrets

Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
