    Crafted by the late winemaker Denis Malbec from Chateau Latour in Pauillac, this vintage of the State Lane Vineyard Cuvee from Kapcsandy is reminiscent of the Médoc style, which demonstrates Malbec's depth of experience and artistry. Notes of ripe violet, red juicy apple, chaparral, black cherry and rose petal converge in a condensed but medium bodied palate, with fine, grainy tannin. There is a wonderful balance and elegance to this richly textured and powerful wine, which suggests excellent aging potential. This is one to decant for a few hours and drink now, but will easily cellar for 20+ years.

    Remember back in the day when '07 Dominus was released at $135 and it was the best deal going on in collectible Napa from a top vintage? That's what Kapcsandy '13 Estate Cuvee is today. High scoring, Bordeaux-inspired, elite producer, and immaculately crafted. This is not your inky purple Napa cab but instead a reserved (13.7%), elegant, graceful, and precise style. Silky texture, with deep red-to-black fruits - this is a wine that will develop tremendously over the years. All the parts are there. If you're going to open now decant it for a long time, but I'd advise holding for 5-10 years and drinking over the next two decades.
