2012 Kapcsándy Family Winery Endre  (Yountville) 90

Fresh, medium bodied, forward, easy to like style of California Cabernet with round textures and a blast of mocha, black cherry and licorice in the finish. 90 Points

2012 Kapcsándy Family Winery Estate Cuvée State Lane Vineyard  (Yountville) 95

Super nice style of wine here, with layers of luscious, rich, fat, sweet, ripe, juicy fruits, vanilla, smoke, and dark chocolate covered, dark red and black fruits. 95 Points

2010 Kapcsándy Family Winery Cabernet Sauvignon (Grand Vin) State Lane Vineyard  (Yountville) 98

Inky in color, the wine slams you with intense blueberry, smoke, coffee bean, jam, vanilla and blackberry notes. From the aromatics, the wine appears like it will be over the top, but one sip will explain, nothing could be further from the truth. On the palate, the wine is silky, perfectly balance, rich, concentrated, sweet and for its immense depth of flavor, light on its feet. If you have the funds, and love California Cabernet Sauvignon, this is great wine! 98 Points

2010 Kapcsándy Family Winery Roberta's Reserve State Lane Vineyard  (Yountville) 95

Really great expression of Napa in an elegant style. The fruit is perfectly ripe, generous, fresh and shows good purity. The tannins are round, soft and polished. The finish displays fleshy, ripe, juicy, sweet blackberry, boysenberry, dark chocolate and earthy notes. Everything is working here. This is drinking quite well today. 95 Points

2009 Kapcsándy Family Winery Endre  (Yountville) 89

A little bit dissapointing. The wine had nice aromatics coupled with soft tannins, but the finish was short and there was a greeness from underripeness in the finish. 89 Points

2007 Kapcsándy Family Winery Cabernet Sauvignon (Grand Vin) State Lane Vineyard  (Yountville) 97

From a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, and a mix of Petit Verdot with Cabernet Franc, this inky colored wine, with black/purple accents pops with scents of fresh roasted coffee beans, licorice, black and blue fruit, boysenberry jam, vanilla, earth and stone. Massive, yet balanced, powerful, but not overwhelming, this, rich, palate coating California Cabernet Sauvignon wine stains your palate with intense, black and blue fruits. I remember drinking the Berringer wines from State Lane several years ago. Those wines do not compare. This is a very serious Calif Cab. 97 Points

2007 Kapcsándy Family Winery Vino Del Sol State Lane Vineyard  (Yountville) 87

This sweet, fortified wine was produced from mostly Merlot. While I found it interesting to taste, and well made, it was not a lot of fun to drink for me. Think of raisin and cherry syrup with licorice that includes alcohol. Other tasters might like this more than I did. On the bright side, there was no sensation of heat from the 16.25 alcohol wine. 87 Points

2006 Kapcsándy Family Winery Cabernet Sauvignon State Lane Vineyard  (Yountville) 96

Pitch black in color, this is packed and stacked with layers of plush, fat, rich, ripe boysenberries, licorice, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and juicy plums. Blending 91% Cabernet Sauvignon with 8% Merlot and a bit of Cabernet Franc, this is a serious and sexy style of ripe California wine. 96 Points

2005 Kapcsándy Family Winery Roberta's Reserve State Lane Vineyard  (Yountville) 96

Well-balanced, concentrated, polished, pure and balanced, the wine is fresh, sweet, ripe and lush with plenty of staying power, complexity and a lengthy finish. This is fully developed and ready to go. 96 Points
