    July 8, 2014 - I should probably have read about this before opening, but glad I didn't as I may not have opened it. This is a BIG, bold, concentrated, dark, fruity, majestic wine that was a perfect accompaniment to a grilled picanha/tri-tip beside the ocean. Wine doesn't get much better!

    May 11, 2014 - Wonderful, but still needs years to fully round out.

    October 16, 2013 - This wine is still very young but I wanted to see what the WA fuss is about (IWC is fussing a bit less...), so I decided to open one in the name of science. Not terribly appealing at this stage, the Kapcsandy 2010 State Lane Estate is a deep purple-tinted red, although I guess this is a fairly light color relative to some of the hotter Napa vintages. Aromatically showing cranberry fruits, shellac, brioche, lavender, and spice; quite a complex and somewhat heady nose, yet still undeveloped. Firm and a bit closed on the palate, with tongue-lashing acidity and a tight-wound tannic structure, but behind the walls you find richly flavored fruit. Some bitterness on the finish, which is very long and has mineral-inflected tones. Hard for me to guess at how this wine will evolve. Assuming that it softens and opens up, could be lovely in 6-8 years, in which case my 92pts will be very low (but I don't see this hitting 96, frankly). Very young now; don't drink it unless, like me, you simply had to know...
