Kvintners theboy

Grenache, "The Boy" 2013

K Vintners

A regal wine. A beautiful ruby robe, velvety and revealing – layer upon layer of supple and refined fruit. Layers of ‘je ne sais quoi,’ complex, sophisticated and elegant wine. “The Boy” was the first wine Charles Smith made that was not a Syrah, and as a result, he put the K on the back label. This left a simple white label, reminiscent of the Beatles White Album. Charles began thinking of yet another musical artist, French chanteur Serge Gainsbourg and his song “The Boy” with lyrics “I am the boy who can enjoy invisibility” - a sentiment much enjoyed by Charles. Thus “The Boy” label.
