The flagship Cabernet Sauvignon blend, represents only 24% of the entire 2008 production. The wine is produced from only the finest Cabernet Sauvignon lots, and includes small additions of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. 100% Estate-grown fruit is vinified using cultured yeast. Yields typically are 2.5-3.2 tons/acre. Malo-lactic fermentation is performed in barrel, and the resulting wine is bottled without fining or filtration. The "Grand-Vin" title signifies this wine as the ultimate expression that could be achieved from the given vintage, and will provide early drinking pleasure as well as have the ability to age gracefully for more than 20 years.

Wine AdvocateAnother perfect wine (identical to the 2007) is the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin State Lane Vineyard. Composed of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot (430 cases produced), this is an exquisite wine of great precision and profound concentration and complexity. It possesses an inky/purple color in addition to an ethereal nose of cassis, chocolate, burning embers, espresso and forest floor. Sweet tannins, a multidimensional mouthfeel, full-bodied power and good structure as well as freshness make for a prodigious example of wine that will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring, but will keep for 25-30 years. This is an awesome effort, particularly after what the Kapcsandy family achieved in 2007.

Wine SpectatorComplex and well-structured, with sour cherry, wild berry, cedar, lead pencil and tobacco, Bordeaux-like in its structure, balance and mix of flavors, with a nice aftertaste. Needs time. Best from 2013 through 2023. 430 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastDense, dry and ripe, this is a Cabernet to lay down. It's really tough and gritty in tannins, but solid in wild blackberry, cherry and herb flavors. A powerful young Cabernet that needs 6-8 years to come around.
