This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

Kapcsándy tasting

Tasting of wines from Kapcsándy Family Winery, organized by Bordeaux Index.  Lou Kapcsándy in attendance.

2010 Kapcsándy Grand Vin Rosé - 70% Cab and 30% Merlot.  Very sweet and ripe, with tangerine notes. Alcoholic, a little like cough syrup, perhaps?  Forest notes, and a slightly bitter mid-palate and finish.

2009 Kapcsándy Endre - 51% Cab, 40% Merlot, 6% Cab Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.  Meaty, sweet, oaky.  Still tannic, young but not too bad.

2010 Kapcsándy Endre - 53% Cab, 43% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Cab Franc.  Sweet fruit, vanilla oak, slightly alcoholic.

2005 Kapcsándy Estate Cuvée - 56% Cab, 40% Merlot and 4% Cab Franc.  Very minty, also with sweet fruit, a little smoke, but a hint of dusty, chalky notes.  Very fragrant nose with pine and a little coconut butter.

2006 Kapcsándy Estate Cuvée - more fragrant forest pine, dried herbs, slightly sharp nose from the alcohol.  Tannic but still relatively enjoyable.

2008 Kapcsándy Estate Cuvée - 68% Cab, 22% Merlot, 5% Cab Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.  Metallic, sweet, very tannic.  Still young and alcoholic.

2009 Kapcsándy Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin - 96% Cab, 3% Merlot and 1% Cab Franc.  Very classic Cab, earthy, metallic and minty.

2010 Kapcsándy Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin - 95% Cab, 4% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot.  Pretty good...

2009 Kapcsándy Roberta's Reserve - 96% Merlot and 4% Cab Franc.  A little oak.  Nice and sweet, but a little alcoholic.

2010 Kapcsándy Roberta's Reserve - 95% Merlot and 5% Cab Franc.  Ripe and sweet fruit, with vanilla oak.

2007 Kapcsándy Vino del Sol - 100% Merlot.  Clearly more alcoholic and much sweeter.  Really rich and viscous, with gorgeous dates.
