Lot #796. Kapcsàndy Family Proprietary Red State Lane Vineyard Estate Cuvée 2006

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 93 RP.
"The 2006 Estate Cuvée State Lane Vineyard (a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot, and 4% Cabernet Franc) possesses a dark plum/purple color as well as notes of roasted coffee, cocoa, chocolate, black currants, sweet cherries, and subtle oak. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, layered, intense, pure, and long, it is approachable now, but promises to drink well for two decades or more. This is a superb line-up of wines from Lou Kapcsàndy, 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." Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate #186, Dec 2009
Provenance: The Maquereau Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $150
