2012 Kapcsàndy "Estate Cuvée - State Lane Vineyard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1252379 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Estate Cuvée State Lane Vineyard, which is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot aged in a combination of mostly new French oak, but some Hungarian oak as well, represents 1,190 cases, or 50% of the production from their estate vineyard. This wine shows beautiful floral notes along with hints of earth, chocolate, espresso, licorice and blackcurrants. It is elegant, medium to full-bodied, with impressive purity, texture and length. The wine shows relatively sweet tannin, but then so do most of the top 2012s. It should drink nicely for 15-20 more years. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark ruby-red. Crushed blackcurrant, mint, wild herbs and rose petal on the nose and in the mouth. Riper and deeper than the Endre but still with an exciting high pitch that serves to intensify the mid-palate. This wonderfully silky, tactile wine finishes with outstanding length. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Lots of ripe fruit on the nose with blackberry, blueberry, hints of walnut and wet earth. Iodine too. Full body, yet fresh and lively. Pretty refined tannins and a delicious finish. Inner quote mark (5/2016)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A dark, powerful wine, the 2012 Estate Cuvée possesses gorgeous depth and textural richness. Open and large on the palate, the 2012 delivers plenty of pleasure today. Next to the best wines from the estate, the 2012 Estate Cuvée lacks a touch of freshness - especially in its aromatics - but it is incredibly appealing today. My sense is that the 2012 is going through a period of dullness, as the bouquet is not as expressive as it has been in the past. A closing note of rose petal and mint adds the final layer of nuance. The blend is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot. (AG) 94+ Inner quote mark (10/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Pure and focused on a dense core of extracted currant, crushed rock, espresso, plum and wild berry. The tannins are firm and gripping but also ripe, giving this a long, tapered finish. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2015)
