Kapcsándy

About Kapcsándy

The Kapcsándy family purchased the old Beringer estate in Yountville, “a town that is becoming the epicurean center for Napa Valley” according to the Wine Advocate, in 2000 and over the past decade, Kapcsándy Family Winery has risen to the highest echelons of the Napa Valley fine wine scene.

Lou Kapcsándy, of Hungarian descent, completely replanted the vineyards neighbouring the illustrious Screaming Eagle with the finest Bordeaux clones. Bringing in Bordelais legend and third generation winemaker from the mighty Château Latour, Denis Malbec, Lou left no stone unturned in his quest to make ultra-fine Napa wine.

“What the Kapcsandys have done with the fruit from that vineyard with assistance from their consultant, the Pauillac-born Denis Malbec, is nothing short of remarkable. Moreover, they have done it in less than a decade, which proves that fortunes can be made quickly, provided there are three ingredients – incredibly hard work, lots of talent, and a super terroir. These can indeed propel an estate to the stratosphere in less than a decade”
Robert M. Parker Jr.

Today, the estate makes world-class cuvées of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc from a miniscule 20 acres. The production is absolutely tiny, but the quality is unrivalled making Kapcsándy one of the first names springing to mind when Napa lovers are asked which cult producer they’d love to own.

Kapcsandy Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin State Lane 2013 (3x75cl)

Wine Advocate (100)

Little can be added to the greatness of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin, a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. The wine (600 cases) is truly stunning in its dense, crème de cassis and blackberry-scented nose with a hint of barbecue smoke and forest floor. Tasting like a ripe vintage of Château Latour from Pauillac, the wine has amazing richness and a savory, expansive mouthfeel, but tiptoes across the palate like a ballerina. A wine of magnificent richness and intensity, but vibrancy, purity and overall equilibrium, this is a staggeringly great wine and another tribute to the Kapcsándy family’s extraordinary professionalism and meticulous attention to detail in their vineyard.

Kapcsandy Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin State Lane 2018 (3x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (100)

Only the second time it's been 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin sports a deep purple color as well as a Latour-like bouquet of crème de cassis, scorched earth, violets, graphite, camphor, and lead pencil. Rich, powerful and concentrated, with incredible elegance and purity as well as building structure, this magical effort needs 7-8 years of bottle age and will live for 50 years or more.

Kapcsandy Rapszodia 2018 (3x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (98+)

The 2018 Rapszodia (100% Cabernet Franc) is up with the finest expressions of this variety in the world, offing a dense purple hue as well as stunning notes of blackcurrants, dark chocolate, spring flowers, and scorched earth. More exotic violet and orange blossom notes develop with time in the glass, and it’s full-bodied and as seamless as they come. I’d happily drink bottles today, but it’s going to improve over the short-term and have 20-25 years of prime drinking.

Kapcsandy Roberta's Reserve 2013 (3x75cl)

Wine Advocate (100)

At 100% Merlot, the 2013 Merlot Roberta’s Reserve is off the charts and could easily eclipse a great vintage of Pétrus in a blind tasting. Fabulous notes of sweet cocoa and chocolate intermixed with black cherry and blackberry soar from the glass of this full-bodied wine that has a deep, rich, profound core of fruit and density. It is a great example of possibly the finest vintage Napa has ever produced for Bordeaux varieties. This wine has greatness all over it, with a minute-plus finish, yet is accessible enough to be drinkable now or cellared for another 30+ years.

Vinous (98)

The 2018 Roberta's Reserve is another magnificent wine from the Kapcsándy family. Beautifully ripe and deep, the Roberta's balances richness with elegance in a stunning style. Black cherry, chocolate, new leather, licorice, spice and menthol, build as this creamy, expansive Merlot opens over time. The 2018 is all class. In a word: superb.
