*2013 Kapcsandy Rapszodia
Kapcsandy Family Winery Rapszodia, Yountville, USA 2013
Another Cheval Blanc-like blend of 65% Cabernet Franc and 35% Merlot is the 2013 Rapszodia Proprietary Red, which has mind-blowing aromatics of blueberries, white flowers, raspberries and foresty notes in a fragrant, compelling scent of explosive perfume. Deep, concentrated, multidimensional, yet vibrant and super-concentrated, this is another tour de force, although only 150 cases were made of this superstar that finished at 13.8% natural alcohol.

Lou and Bobbie Kapcsandy’s journey toward winery ownership began in France at a very long lunch with the owners of Leoville Las Cases. It was only fitting that when they began their adventure they employed Denis Malbec as their winemaker. Malbec spent his childhood in the cellar at Chateau Latour with his father, and was winemaker there until 1999. His French education shows in his wines which are beautifully integrated, balanced, and display wonderful purity of fruit. All their wines are built to age and ready to be in your cellar.
