The start of the weekend, Friday is here and I have been looking forward to opening this 2012 Endre Kapcsándy Family Winery State Line Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend. 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.

On the nose is a very expressive black cherry, blueberry, plum, black currant, vanilla, mocha, menthol and tobacco.

On the palate is suculant juicy fruit of black cherry, black raspberry, black plum, black currant, bell pepper, leather, juicy licorice and an earthy essence.

This wine is full bodied soft, smooth and rounded in the mouth with medium + acidity and medium + gripping tannins that leads to a long fruit driven finish. A nice start to the weekend and wishing you all a safe enjoyable weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

@David L thank you for sharing this with Jennifer and I. So refined and elegant! Wonderful balanced, lush, weaving dark berry, graphite and blackberry...silky and supple tannins. Finish shows dusty and loamy soils. Jennifer loves it David! Tell Kristen thank you from us please.

Savory elements here make for an interesting and delightful experience. Plenty of tannin and acid to last.
