425 cases were produced of this 2016 offering from Kapcsandy. Nestled in the northern side of Yountville Crossroad is where Kapcsandy has called home since 2000. Previously, the vineyard was Beringer Estate State Lane vineyard which had been the home base for their Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon program. When Lou Sr. acquired the vineyard, they did a complete replant of the property with tighter spacing to produce more concentrated fruit. The vineyard is comprised of 15 specific blocks, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. This 2016 is made of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc. "It is deep garnet-purple colored with a lovely crème de cassis core backed-up by the most amazing perfume of lilacs, oolong tea, camphor and dark chocolate plus gentle wafts of aniseed and red currants. Medium-bodied with fantastic vibrancy and intensity, the palate practically rings with spine-tingling energy. It slowly builds in the mouth to reveal layers of red and black fruits supported by a very finely grained frame and seamless freshness, leading to a drop dead gorgeous, perfumed lift on the long finish."
