Kapcsandy Family Winery is an award-winning, small estate-grown winery bottling three distinct red wines from Kapcsandy State’s Lane Vineyard. Made in very small quantities, these wines are rare gems.

”The perfect 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin State Lane Vineyard is 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Merlot aged 20 months in 100% new French oak. I think this is the third perfect score I’ve given to this wine, which is the essence of their vineyard, representing about 13% of the total production, or a mere 320 cases. The wine has a gorgeously opaque purple color and a beautiful nose of camphor, charcoal, blackberry and crme de cassis with licorice and truffle. It has unbelievable richness, great texture, tremendous finesse, precision and delineation. Very intense, full-bodied and super-pure, the length of the wine must be at least 50+ seconds. This is a gorgeous wine and one of the great superstars of this fabulous vintage.

"This family-owned winery is situated at the southern end of Napa Valley, a few miles east of Yountville, a town that is becoming the epicurean center for Napa Valley. Kapcsandy produces between 2,500 and 4,000 cases of wine each year from their 15.5 acres of vineyards. They have added a couple of wrinkles to their classic lineup of Bordeaux varietals, including a crisp, stainless steel-fermented and aged white called Furmint, the well-known grape of Hungary, the country from which Lou Kapcsandy emigrated.” Robert Parker

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin is a real stunner. Despite an overall impression of femininity and understatement, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin is simply dazzling. Sweet, floral and open-knit, the 2012 is nevertheless holding quite a bit back in potential. When I visited Kapcsándy during the 2012 harvest the enthusiasm was very high. This wine shows why." Antonio Galloni
