The easiest way to boost your query is to modify your query string.

q=product:red color:red^10

In the above example, I have boosted the color field. If "red" is found in
that field, it will get a boost of 10. If it is only found in the product
field, then there will be no boost.

Here's more information:

Once you're comfortable with that, I suggest that you look into using the
DisMax request handler. It will allow you to easily search across multiple
fields with custom boost values.
