Grand Vin State Lane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

The 2009 Grand Vin from Kapcsándy is utterly fascinating and one of the finest wines from the vintage. Composed of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, 1%Cabernet Franc this instantly beings to impress with is upfront and profound personality, offering seductive aromas of ripe blackberries and blueberries woven together with graphite, crushed violets, sweet spices all explode from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied and voluptuous with beautifully polished tannins and wonderful overall structure. This continues to impress as displays incredible concentration and balance with gorgeous finesse leading up to the stunning finish. There is so much to love with the 2009 Grand Vin, it is an absolute delight today and should continue to age marvelously for decades to come. — a month ago

Estate Cuvée State Lane Vineyard Merlot Blend 2007

Dark fruits, plum, stewed fruits, ripe round tannins. Acidity is a bit low so a little flabby on the palate. Good but not great. — 2 months ago

Super smooth and very much needs to be decanted for at least an hour or two before drinking. Good juice! — 3 months ago

State Lane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

This wine is starting to show a little bit of age I believe. Immediately from cork pop, this wine had sort of an interesting muted nose. Took about 20 minutes to wake up as the middle of this wine was initially quite flat. After if woke up, it was blackberry, truffle, tobacco on the nose which carried over to the palate. The middle of this wine and actually kind of thinned out a little bit, this playing black cherry, black tea. Tobacco note comes back in to the heavier weighted blackberry finish. Very well done! Haven't had too many of these State Lane cabernets from Kapcsandy but the style resembles the old Beringer State Lane quite remarkably. I don't think these are really going to improve much more in the bottle, so if you are lucky enough to have a few of these laying around, it is time to start coming up with a drinking plan! — 5 months ago

I still have a bottle or 2 of this left. If memory serves, it was the last vintage before Lou split the grapes into 3-4 different wines. The last couple of 2004’s I’ve had have been spectacular

Estate Cuvée-State Lane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

The 2012 Kapcsandy 'Estate Cuvée' begins with striking aromas of blackberries, dark cherries, spring florals, graphite and crushed stones all emerging beautifully from the glass. On the palate this displays wonderful elegance and precision. It continues to impress with remarkable overall structure, balance and purity of fruit, all leading up to the long, graceful finish that lingers effortlessly. A total beauty from Kapcsandy, which will thrive in the cellar for many years. — a month ago

Happy Father’s Day! Wonderful pull by my father in law.

I’m a big fan of this winery as you don’t see them around very much. Such high quality with impeccable wine making. Slow ox for 1-2hrs. 95 merlot/5 CabFranc. Espresso and dark cocoa dusted black cherry, ripe blackberry and currant aromatics...intoxicating. So soft, yet ripe fruit, on the palate. Cherry swisher sweets, baked mixed berry figs, and still tart red and black fruit. Can’t believe how tart and ripe the fruit is even at 13yrs. Outstanding.
