    Winemaker's Notes:

    This flagship Cabernet Sauvignon blend represents only 24% of the entire 2008 production. The wine is produced from only the finest Cabernet Sauvignon lots, and includes small additions of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The "Grand-Vin" title signifies this wine as the ultimate expression that could be achieved from the given vintage, and will provide early drinking pleasure as well as have the ability to age gracefully for more than 20 years.

    Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Another perfect wine (identical to the 2007) is the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin State Lane Vineyard. Composed of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot (430 cases produced), this is an exquisite wine of great precision and profound concentration and complexity. It possesses an inky/purple color in addition to an ethereal nose of cassis, chocolate, burning embers, espresso and forest floor. Sweet tannins, a multidimensional mouthfeel, full-bodied power and good structure as well as freshness make for a prodigious example of wine that will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring, but will keep for 25-30 years. This is an awesome effort, particularly after what the Kapcsandy family achieved in 2007.
