The Winery

Kapcsandy Winery

Lou and Bobbie Kapcsandy’s journey toward winery ownership began in France at a very long lunch with the owners of Leoville Las Cases. It was only fitting that when they began their adventure they employed Denis Malbec as their winemaker. Malbec spent his childhood in the cellar at Chateau Latour with his father, and was winemaker there until 1999. His French education shows in his wines which are beautifully integrated, balanced, and display wonderful purity of fruit. All their wines are built to age and ready to be in your cellar.

WA95+
The more closed but potentially greater 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin State Lane Vineyard is a 480-case blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by notes of licorice, creme de cassis, camphor and subtle toast. Full-bodied and concentrated, it represents 15% of the total Kapcsandy production. The wine finished with 13.7% alcohol, which in these days is relatively low, although the alcohol levels were down in 2009 through 2011 because of the cooler, less ripe years.
