2016 Kapcsándy "Estate Cuvée - State Lane Vineyard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Previously $130)

SKU #1426029 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Estate Cuvee checks in as a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 16% Merlot brought up in a mix of new and used barrels. This deeply colored beauty has impressive black cherries, currants, scorched earth, graphite, and subtle background oak, with ample richness and depth. It's rich, layered, has beautiful tannins, and an elegant style on the palate, yet it certainly has plenty of concentration. It will be better with a year or two of bottle age and is going to evolve gracefully. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Estate Cuvée has turned out beautifully. Pliant, supple and inviting, the 2016 Estate Cuvée is one of the most refined wines I have tasted from Kapcsándy. Silky tannins and lifted, savory aromatics add to an impression of polish. The Cabernet Sauvignon savory notes are quite prominent, while the addition of 16% Roberta's Merlot helps fill out the mid-palate beautifully. This is such a pretty wine.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Merlot aged in 88% new French oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Cuvée is deep garnet-purple colored with a wonderfully spicy nose giving up notes of Chinese five spice, eucalyptus and dark chocolate with a core of crème de cassis, mincemeat pie and Christmas cake plus a waft of potpourri. Medium-bodied with lovely velvety tannins and great freshness supporting the generous fruit, it finishes long and exotic. Delicious now but will cellar! (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A perfumy, spice-infused style, with gently mulled plum and blackberry fruit melding into an anise note. Exhibits a caressing feel on the finish. (JM, Web Only-2020) Inner quote mark

For those looking for detailed and elegant Napa Cab from one of the region's great producers and vintages, look no further. This is a no-compromise wine from Kapcsandy that ranks up there with my two previous favorites - the 2012 and 2013. Less compact than the '13, but a bit brighter and more refined than the '12, it hits all the right notes and seems to borrow the best from both. Complex aromas of cassis and forest floor lead to a palate full of pure red-to-black fruits and a bright acidity that carries a long, resounding finish. Reminiscent of a great Super Second from Bordeaux, it is that sweet-spot collectible that I wish Napa had more of.
