A wine from Amayna, a producer in the Leyda Valley-San Antonio area of Chile. Boya was created by the Garces Silva family, pioneers in Chilean boutique estate wines. Boya in Spanish means "buoy" - an appropriate name for a wine coming from vineyards that overlook the Pacific Ocean.
A Pinot Noir is released under both the Amayna and Boya labels.

2012 Boya Leyda San Antonio Valley Chile Pinot Noir
13.0% alc., 1,500 cases, $22, screw cap. Also produced by the Garces-Silva family but from sections of the vineyard that are harvested earlier. Average age of vines is 4 years. Aged 6 months in third use French oak barrels. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Unpleasant aromas of stem, grass, and green pepper. On the palate, delicate red cherry and berry flavors are featured underlain with a significant green herb and green bell pepper riff. Juicy, with nice balance and finesse, but the unripe, vegetal flavors spoil the experience. Score: 82. Reviewed October 27, 2013 ARTICLE »
