Kapcsándy's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin State Lane Vineyard is truly special. Supremely polished and refined, the 2010 is absolutely gorgeous right out of the gate. The 2010 is so beautiful, it is one of the few wines I chose not to decant for this tasting, as I did not want to disturb the fruit. Tasted over several hours, the 2010 just kept getting better and better. I revisited an unfinished bottle the day after the tasting, and it was still magnificent. Perhaps a bit less focused in its aromatics, with air, the 2010 became darker and more voluptuous. Overall, the 2010 Grand Vin stands out for its precision and focus, both qualities that are rare in a vintage that generally produced much more explosive wines. (AG)
Full ruby. Deep aromas of cassis, blackberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and crushed rock, with a sexy suggestion of candied fruit. Then amazingly precise and pure on the palate, with outstanding mineral cut and inner-mouth perfume to the flavors of black fruits, graphite, cedar and lavender. Best today on the expanding, slowly mounting finish, shaped by noble tannins and redolent of captivating mineral and violet perfume. This, too, should improve in bottle for decades. If the Roberta's Blend resembles a top vintage of Petrus, this one is Latour-like--and I don't make those comparisons lightly. (ST) 97+
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin State Lane Vineyard is a 275-case blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot. It reveals intense red and black currant fruit, good acidity, hints of camphor and graphite, superb purity, a full-bodied texture and an extremely youthful (almost like a barrel sample) freshness and focus. This is a remarkably young yet promising, full throttle, beautifully made Cabernet Sauvignon that should be cellared for 5-7 years and drunk over the following two to three decades. (RP)
A classy, Bordeaux-like red from Napa, with ripe, rich fruit and tiers of currant, spice, cigar box and tobacco leaf. Well-built, showing a measure of restraint, this delivers fine-grained tannins and a long, tapered finish. (JL, Web Only-2013)
