Professional Reviews For This Wine


purely domestic wine report | Rating: 92

Shows a lush and pretty nose of red and black fruits, along with a little graphite. Beautiful ripeness in the front of the mouth with solid structure to the deep black fruits.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

The 2009 Endre is a major step up in quality from the 2008 I tasted alongside it. The wine reveals lovely fleshiness and depth in its dark fruit, tobacco and spices. I especially like the way the Endre fleshes out on the finish. The 2009 is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Syrah.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

(51% cabernet sauvignon, 40% merlot, 6% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot): Good deep ruby-red. Superripe, full-blown aromas of kirsch , blackberry liqueur, dark cherry, leather and game, plus an exotic whiff of pineapple. Fat, sweet and wild, with the blackberry and leather elements following through on the palate. A very ripe, smooth wine but can't match the 2010 for energy.

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.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend


Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
