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 magnificent 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin State Lane Vineyard (87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot representing 30% or 600 cases of their total production) completely obscures any of the new oak it’s aged in. The wine displays a bluish purple color and offers up a whiff of chocolate, cedar wood, graphite, blackcurrant and blackberry fruit. It’s full-bodied, has great length, still seems to be playing it close to the vest, and compared to the 2012, is not as ostentatious or dramatic. Nevertheless, it’s impressive and well-endowed. Forget it for 4-5 years and drink it over the following three decades.e.

"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

"A dark, beguiling beauty, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin is endowed with serious depth and power. White flowers, cinnamon, orange peel and blueberry jam meld into a huge finish. The 2013 is wonderfully complete, especially for its combination of fruit and structure. This magnificent, towering Cabernet Sauvignon will drink well for two to three decades, perhaps more." Antonio Galloni
