(blended with 4% merlot and 1% petit verdot; 13.6% alcohol): Bright full ruby. Aromas of blueberry, licorice pastille and menthol, with enticing spicy lift. Fully ripe, dense and impressively fine-grained: this is more Latour than Las Cases. Deep, glossy blue fruit, molten chocolate and violet flavors are firmed by pungent minerality on the extremely long, building finish. Tannins are chewy but suave. Outstanding potential here. The Kapcsandy 2010s spent 35 to 40 days on their skins, including a cold soak lasting 4 to 7 days, and did their malolactic fermentations in barrel.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin is rich, deep and explosive, yet also incredibly sensual. The aromas and flavors are a little more delineated than in the 2009, very much in keeping with the style of the year. Violets, tar, asphalt and plums are layered into the tense, vibrant finish. Today, the 2010 is massively tannic and unapproachable. It should start drinking well around age ten, but is definitely a wine built for the cellar. The 2010 is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040.
