2007 Kapcsandy Family State Line Vineyard Grand Vin Cabernet - 100 pts!

Kapcsándy Family Winery is a wine producer located in the Yountville sub-appellation of Napa Valley, California. It is particularly well-known for its Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon blends, which can reach some high prices and are sold mostly through allocation. The State Lane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has had 100-point scores from top wine critic Robert Parker for several vintages.

The estate was established by Lou Kapcsándy, who had fled his home country of Hungary in the 1950s. In the U.S. he became a petroleum and pharmaceutical engineer, and in his spare time developed a passion for fine French wine. In 2000, he bought the 8-hectare (20-acre) State Lane Vineyard in Yountville which had previously belonged to Beringer, but had been ripped out after an outbreak of phylloxera in 1999. Kapcsándy replanted it to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, and produced the first vintage in 2004.

Rating 100 RP - Absolutely riveting, and even better than I predicted last year is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon - Grand Vin State Lane Vineyard. Made from 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, and the rest tiny dollops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot (400 cases produced), in two weeks of tastings, this wine stood out as one of those singular efforts that it is impossible to get out of your mind and off of your palate. A flawless, seamless, profound example of Napa Cabernet, it exhibits an opaque purple color along with a gorgeous perfume of lead pencil shavings, cedar, creme de cassis, ink, flowers, and espresso roast. With phenomenal depth, a multidimensional personality, unbelievable length, and an impeccable integration of all its component parts, this stunning wine lasts and lasts, with a finish approaching a full minute. Give this profound wine 3-5 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 25-30 years. This is a superb line-up of wines from Lou Kapcsandy, who emigrated from Hungary to set up a construction business in Seattle, which he gave up for his true love - making wines along with his wife, Bobbi, and son, Louis. They were fortunate to be able to purchase Beringer’s State Lane Vineyard in Yountville, and have it completely replanted by Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer. They then brought in Bordelais Denis Malbec to help produce the wines, which have gone from strength to strength. The 2006s are magnificent, but may be eclipsed by the 2007s. RP
