*2015 Kapcsandy Rapszodia
Kapcsandy Family Winery Rapszodia, Yountville, USA 2015
Produced from 100% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Rapszodia has a very deep garnet-purple color and nose of kirsch, cassis, blueberry tart and dark chocolate with hints of violets, pencil shavings, beef drippings and tilled soil. Medium-bodied, incredibly elegant and yet with super-intense red and black fruits, it has a firm structure of grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and minerally. (RP)
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.
