I don’t know about you, but when I see a new winery to me, and that almost occurs daily, my brain tends to do free association links. While I was at Fine Wine Source in Livonia, Michigan picking up my June wine selections, I also did a few tastings; which I think is a great promotion concept. Two of the wines that I tasted were from Bos Wines, and my brain went into overdrive, because I actually had a teacher in Junior High School whose last name was Bos. It is funny how that works.
David Bos has been a vineyard manager in the Napa Valley for ten years and was immersed in the now lauded biodynamic/organic farming practices since day one. He gets intimately involved with the vineyards to try and nurture all of the best from the vineyard. David and Jackie Bos, along with their winemaker Jillian Johnson are striving to create an affordable cult-wine from Napa Valley. Bos Wines got its beginning with the Napa Valley Phoenix Ranch single vineyard Syrah, and they have since added a Napa Valley Soda Creek Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc.
They have also started a Moon BOS blend program consisting of a red, white and a rosé and the fruits are from David’s connections in Napa Valley, Sonoma, Clarksburg and East Bay. The first wine that I tasted was the Bos Wine Moon BOS Harvest Red 2015. I didn’t take a photo of the back label, and there is no listing of the grapes that were used to make this wine or any winemaker’s notes as well. My notes on this wine was that it had a softer nose and a medium finish. The newest addition to the wines being produced and offered is the DEO collection and so far, that is the Bos Wine DEO Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2015. My notes said “unique nose” as I did not pick up immediate Cabernet Sauvignon aromas, but it was an easy drinking wine with a nice finish. I just wish that wineries would make better use of their sites, as the world does seem interested in learning more, or is it just wine lovers?
