Kapcsandy 2017 Estate Cuvee State Lane Vineyard, Napa Valley

One of the top-rated Cabernets of the 2016 vintage. Limited.

96 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the 2017s from barrel, the 2017 Estate Cuvee is Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated and includes 8% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. This beauty has a Château Margaux-like complexity as well as sexiness, followed by notes of blueberries, red currants, incense, and spicy oak. It's rounded, fruit-forward, and textured, with the forward, fleshy, flamboyant style of the vintage front and center. It doesn't have the density of the 2016 yet is more approachable."

95 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2017 Estate Cuvée is rich, ample and creamy, while remaining very much faithful to the Kapcsándy house style. Plush and silky, with striking fruit purity, the 2017 Estate Cuvée is super-promising. Ripe red fruit and floral notes abound. The 2017 is shaping up to be a real gem."

Robert Parker: "In all of my travels throughout the world I have met few producers who can match Lou Kapcsandy’s passion and total dedication to excellence. Along with his son Louis and consulting winemaker Denis Malbec, Lou Kapcsandy continues to craft exceptional wines loaded with class and pedigree. Every wine in this lineup, from the newly expanded selection of roses, to the flagship reds and the fortified wine is well worth your time."
