Kapcsandy Family Winery Red Bordeaux Blend Yountville State Lane Vineyard 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

A breakthrough effort, the 2004 Proprietary Red Wine State Lane Vineyard is a combination of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by lovely, evolved aromas of blueberries, black currants, white chocolate, licorice, and pain grille. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, finely etched, and impeccably well-balanced, with abundant amounts of sweet fruit, it should evolve for another 15-20 years.

The historic State Lane Vineyard, in the heart of the Napa Valley was first leased by Beringer Estates in 1972 from the McClaskey Family. In 1979, Beringer Estates began bottling the State Lane Cabernet Sauvignon as a single vineyard designated wine. The remaining grapes were used to launch the now famous Beringer Estates Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon program. State Lane remained the cornerstone of the Private Reserve wines until 1999 when phylloxera destroyed the vines. Our family – Lou, Roberta and son Louis Jr. – purchased the property in May, 2000. This vineyard was known to us for many years from Beringer's winemaker’s Myron Nightingale and Ed Sbragia. The wines from State Lane vineyard continued to be highly sought after. The 1995 State Lane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was awarded 95 points by the Wine Spectator as the top Cabernet Sauvignon in California. Robert Parker has consistently rated the wines at 90-plus points. In 2001, we teamed up with legendary winemaker Helen Turley and her viticulturist husband John Wetlaufer. We conducted comprehensive investigations of soils profile, physical properties, soils chemistry, geological formation and drainage. To our amazement and pleasure, we discovered a unique vineyard with multiple micro-geological conditions. We have great respect, admiration and love for this very special land in Yountville, CA, and decided to redevelop the vineyard for its utmost potential and produce world-class red wines under our family label. We replanted State Lane Vineyard to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, in a tightly spaced 3 ft. by 5-1/2 ft. (2,640 vines/acre). A new state of the art wine making facility was completed in September 2005. The vineyard is farmed by Pina Vineyard Management Company, renowend vineyard managers for several of Napa Valley’s premium wines. Our first two vintages of wines the 2003 and 2004 were produced by Helen Turley. For 2005 we brought in Helen Turley’s recommendation; Rob Lawson, the winemaker at Napa Wine Company for the past 16 years, where most of Napa Valley’s super premium wines were originally crafted and are still produced to date along with Denis Malbec, from Chateau Latour, Pauillac; the First Growth winery in Bordeaux, France as our consulting winemakers. In 2007, Denis Malbec became our sole winemaking consultant. Read less
