Dark ruby/purple-tinged color. Terroir signature exotic aromas of violets, lavenders with currants, berries, chocolate and Asian spices. Elegant flavors of cherry liquor, black cherries, black berries, cassis, mocha, espresso, minerals. Layered with excellent structure and complexity. Full bodied with great long finish - goes on and on with silky sweet ripe tannins. It will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and should last for over 20 years.

In 2005, the Kapcsandy family put the words “Grand Vin” on the label and began to produce at least three separate cuvees. This 2004 Proprietary Red Wine State Lane Vineyard was a tiny crop for them, largely harvested August 30 to mid-September, because of the extraordinary heat wave (104 to 109 degrees between September 5-8). The final blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot was a rarity given the fact that production from the vineyard was subdivided into other cuvees starting in 2005. The 2004 performed spectacularly and the good news is that 1,200-1,300 cases were produced. Showing better than it did in its infancy, this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot has an inky purple color as well as notes of lead pencil shavings and scorched earth that resemble a great Graves, blackberry and creme de cassis fruit, licorice and subtle smoky barbecue. It also reveals a full-bodied texture, stunning concentration and beautiful richness. This is the only time the Kapcsandys made this particular blend and it certainly is performing incredibly well at age ten. It’s one of the superstars of the vintage and should continue to drink well for another 15-20 years.

Firm, intense and concentrated, showing rich, focused currant, anise, blackberry and spicy, cedary, toasty oak, with hints of violet and wild berry. Impressive finish, where the fruit and tannins are well-integrated. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2009 through 2014.
