(merlot with 4% cabernet franc): Good medium ruby. Captivating high-pitched perfume of blackberry, licorice, violet and pungent flinty minerality. Utterly seamless in texture, with great purity and lift to its sappy dark fruit flavors. Finishes with great palate-staining length and perfume. Really remarkably structured, fine-grained merlot with outstanding potential.

The 2009 Roberta's Reserve (14.2% alcohol), a luxury Merlot-based wine, is composed of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. It possesses copious amounts of melted chocolate, fudge, espresso roast, black cherry, plum and Asian spice characteristics that hit the palate with a full-bodied crescendo, wonderful opulence and a juicy, succulent, voluptuous texture. This beauty is hard to resist. Unfortunately, they only made 260 cases, or 8% of the total production.

Shows a brilliant nose of dusty and precise cherry and mocha with a palate that delivers everything promised in the aromas with long, polished tannins.

About This Producer


The historic State Lane Vineyard, in the heart of the Napa Valley, was first leased by Beringer Estates in 1972 and was used to launch Beringer's famous Private Reserve Cabernet. The Kapcsandys purchased the property in May, 2000 and in 2001 teamed up with legendary winemaker Helen Turley and her viticulturist husband John Wetlaufer. After careful research, they discovered a unique vineyard with multiple micro-geological conditions and decided to redevelop the vineyard for its utmost potential and produce world-class red wines under the Kapcsandy label. The first two vintages - 2003 and 2004 - were produced by Helen Turley. For 2005 Rob Lawson, the winemaker at Napa Wine Company for the past 16 years, was brought aboard and in 2007, Denis Malbec became the sole winemaking consultant.
