2008 Kapcsandy "Estate Cuvée - State Lane Vineyard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1069862 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Estate Cuvée State Lane Vineyard is spectacular. In fact, I rated it the same as I did the 2007. A dense ruby/purple hue is followed by a gorgeous bouquet of espresso roast, chocolate, blackberries and black fruits. Full-bodied with extraordinary elegance as well as tremendous texture, intensity and length, this singular wine should drink well for two decades. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Very fine, rich and dramatic, a wine that feels important all the way through. Dry and vital in concentrated blackberry and currant flavors, with a rich appliqué of smoky oak, it announces its terroir with authority. But it’s extraordinarily tannic, and needs lots of time. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (7/2011)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Graves-like in its rusticity and minerally profile, this is firm, dense, focused and chewy. Broad and complex, gaining depth, with subtle herb, espresso and mocha notes, and ending with a potent finish. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2011)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good bright medium ruby. Crushed blackberry, licorice, tar and violet on the nose, along with a minerality that carries through onto the palate. Sweet, broad and deep, offering lovely chewy fruit and excellent lift. Dominated by its dark berry, licorice and minerally cabernet sauvignon element. Finishes with broad, fine-grained tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Black currants, blueberries and stones on the nose. Full bodied with chewy tannins and a blackberry, chocolate, and mineral character. Inner quote mark (4/2011)
