2005 Estate Cuvee - 94 pointsThe 2005 Estate Cuvee State Lane Vineyard (56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 4% Cabernet Franc) reveals a dense ruby/purple color as well as a gorgeous nose of chocolate-covered black cherries and hints of cedar and licorice, medium to full body,...
This well-balanced 2012 can be drunk young because of the stylistic precociousness of this vintage or cellared for two decades
2012 Cabernet Sauvignon - Grand Vin
Our final and favorite Endre.
2012 Endré
"Spicy with round tannins and a lush, medium to full-bodied personality."
2012 Estate Cuvée
A rosé that could be called a light red wine...
2012 Grand Vin Rosé
The 2012 Rapszodia (only the third vintage of this cuvée) is composed of 90% Cabernet Franc and 10% Merlot. The Kapcsandy family considers this to be their Yountville version of the famous St.-Emilion, Château Cheval Blanc.
2012 Rapszodia
The gorgeous bouquet is followed by a full bodied, voluptuously textured wine.
2012 Roberta's Reserve
Silky, gracious tannins form the backbone in a refined, beautifully balanced Grand Vin long on class. Sweet, perfumed and utterly impeccable throughout, the 2011 is a Grand Vin simply superb. With time in the glass, the 2011 fleshes out beautifully, showing remarkable depth for the year.
2011 Cabernet Sauvignon - Grand Vin
"A super-impressive wine for the year. Freshly cut flowers, mint, sweet tobacco, cherries and dried plums all meld together in a silky, polished wine long on class and finesse... a fabulous value within the context of first-class Napa Valley wines."
2011 Endré
Sweet tobacco, wild flowers, mint, licorice, fennel and mint all meld together in a perfumed, gracious wine graced with stunning elegance and refinement.
The 2011 is less obvious than either the 2010 or 2012, but it is more fragrant and perfumed.
2011 Estate Cuvée
Sweet floral & spice notes add lift on a finish laced with sweet tobacco & crushed flowers.
2011 Grand Vin Rosé
Sweet tobacco, herbs, mint, licorice, new leather, smoke and incense are some of the many notes that flesh out in the 2011 Rapszodia
2011 Rapszodia
Sweet herbs, wild flowers, mint and new leather are all layered together on the finish. The 2011 is all about purity, finesse and balance.
2011 Roberta's Reserve
"Pure silk and finesse. Sweet, refined and totally gorgeous, the 2011 impresses for its overall sense of harmony. Freshly cut flowers and red berries linger on the finish. Aging in steel keeps the flavors bright and focused. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014" Robert...
2011 Rosé
The wine is pure with plenty of chocolate, barbecue smoke and blackcurrant liqueur characteristics as well as just enough sweetness to give it a roundness and juiciness without tasting cloying.
Dark black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice, menthol, tobacco and new leather wrap around the palate as this majestic, breathtaking wine shows off its personality, class and pure pedigree.
2010 Cabernet Sauvignon - Grand Vin
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Issue #209 October 2013 "The less expensive 2010 Endre (53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc aged in both French and Hungarian oak) is very Bordeaux like. Notes of bouquet garni, red and black currants...
2010 Endré
he 2010 Cabernet Estate Cuvee covers every inch of the palate with layers of dark, mineral-infused fruit, crushed rocks, violets and tar.
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Cuvee covers every inch of the palate with layers of dark, mineral-infused fruit, crushed rocks, violets and tar.
2010 Estate Cuvée - Cabernet Sauvignon
"The Cabernet Sauvignon-based 2010 Grand Vin Rose is naturally a more structured, powerful wine than the Roberta’s. Far from an easygoing Rose, the 2010 is going to need at least another 6-12 months in bottle. It is a powerful, imposing wine that will pair beautifully with a...
2010 Grand Vin Rosé
Brisk saline notes give the finish its sense of energy and tension. This is a dazzling effort.
2010 Roberta's Reserve
Leather, spice, tobacco, crushed flowers, mint and orange peel meld together
“The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin opens with the most beguiling bouquet imaginable. Freshly cut flowers, mint, cinnamon and licorice all make an appearance as this vivid, beautifully delineated wine opens up in the glass. A model of total finesse and elegance, the 2009...
2009 Cabernet Sauvignon - Grand Vin
“The 2009 Endre offers up hints of sage, rosemary, wild cherries and tobacco, all supported by vibrant yet-well-integrated tannins. Deceptively medium in body, the 2009 boasts considerable structure and intensity to match its highly appealing mid-weight personality. Like many...
2009 Endré
“The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Cuvee is pure, seamless and totally beautiful. Hints of chocolate, cloves and gingerbread appear on the nose, followed by rich, deep layers of fruit. There is a baritone-like expression in the 2009 that is striking. Sweet floral notes...
2009 Estate Cuvée- Cabernet Sauvignon
Robert Parker's - The Wine AdvocateIssue #204 - December 2012  The 2009 Vino del Sol is fresher and more vibrant than the 2008.  It possesses striking aromatics and fabulous overall balance.  A burst of dark red berries informas the finish.  This is a totally...

2008 Vino del Sol
Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, December 2009 – 100 PointsAbsolutely riveting, and even better than I predicted last year is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon - Grand Vin State Lane Vineyard. Made from 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, and the rest tiny dollops of Cabernet Franc and...

2007 Endré
Exhibiting bold aromas of ripe black and red fruits, dark chocolate, citrus and dried herbs, the mouth feel is rich and clean, with complex flavors and a solid core of ripe tannins. The 2007 can accentuate most cuisine, even those eloquently spiced. It will evolve for 20-25 years....
2007 Estate Cuvée
Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, December 2009 – 98+ PointsNearly as extraordinary, and a wine that may turn out to be pure perfection in a few years is the 2007 Roberta’s Reserve State Lane Vineyard. Composed of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc (only 100 cases produced),...

The 2006 growing season began with a relatively warm February followed by one of the wettest March’s on record.  From February 26th to April 17th there was measurable rain on all but six days. The rains helped to create an abundance of moisture in the soil, which lead to...

2006 Roberta’s Reserve
The wine is fragant, with great intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and almost a Mouton-Rothschild-like creme de cassis element.
2005 Cabernet Sauvignon
The wine comes across as very Pauillac-like, with notes of cedar wood, creme de cassis, licorice and graphite. It is still opaque purple, full-bodied, pure, richly textured and impressive.
2005 Estate Cuvée
A tiny cuvee of only 240 cases, with the Merlot coming from a vein of heavy clay on their vineyard.
2005 Roberta’s Reserve
98 Points - Robert ParkerApril 2014  In 2005, the Kapcsandy family put the words “Grand Vin” on the label and began to produce at least three separate cuvees. This 2004 was a tiny crop for them, largely harvested August 30 to mid-September, because of the...
2004 State Lane Vineyard Proprietary Red
"This deep plum/purple-colored, fully mature 2003 offers complex notes of chocolate (100% new Taransaud barrels were used), espresso, plums and black currants. The tannins are soft and the wine is medium-bodied with a nice mid-palate (often a deficiency in vintages that have such...
