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.

We knew it was going to be a big night when you start here. Yes, perhaps the 2015 is not as developed as it will be in a few years, but it is still impressive. Perfect color, decanted for 45 minutes allowed the early nose to blow off and then you could get the bright blueberry and cassis flavors to come forward. Gets an extra point because it will be better later.

Spectacularly smooth mix of pencil lead, cherry, pipe tobacco and cola. Fantastic acidity and balance. One of the best.

One of my last tastes of the night and really fun counter program to the Bordeaux preceding it. Expresso, chocolate covered blackberry, young beautiful fruit.
