(a 62/38 blend of cabernet franc and merlot; aged in 56% new oak, French and Hungarian): Bright ruby-red. Aromas and flavors of black cherry, licorice, wild herbs, menthol and lavender. Shows a medicinal reserve without any impression of hardness, with the menthol quality nicely counterpointed by sweetness and floral lift. Finishes juicy and very long, with firm but suave tannins. If the Roberta's Reserve is targeting Petrus, this is Kapcsandy's Cheval Blanc. (He describes the Endre and Estate Cuvee as Pessac-Leognan and the Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin as Pauillac, making it clear that he considers Bordeaux, not Napa Valley, to be his competition.)Author: Stephen Tanzer
