Kapcsandy Estate Cuvée State Lane Vineyard 2008
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
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.
