Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Estate Cuvee State Lane Vineyard (68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) is spectacular. In fact, I rated it the same as I did the 2007. A dense ruby/purple hue is followed by a gorgeous bouquet of espresso roast, chocolate, blackberries and black fruits. Full-bodied with extraordinary elegance as well as tremendous texture, intensity and length, this singular wine should drink well for two decades. For those who complain that California wines are too alcoholic, every one of the Kapcsandy wines is under 14.6% alcohol.

Wine EnthusiastVery fine, rich and dramatic, a wine that feels important all the way through. Dry and vital in concentrated blackberry and currant flavors, with a rich appliqué of smoky oak, it announces its terroir with authority. But it's extraordinarily tannic, and needs lots of time. Try after 2015.

Wine SpectatorGraves-like in its rusticity and minerally profile, this is firm, dense, focused and chewy. Broad and complex, gaining depth, with subtle herb, espresso and mocha notes, and ending with a potent finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2024.
