It seems like every year, we encounter one or two new projects that instantly separate themselves from the herd. It’s not about the amount of money spent on architecture or oil paintings for the tasting room (or swagger on the part of the vintner, for that matter). Rather it’s an overriding sense that the people involved have connected the dots from vine to bottle and are capable of building a legacy of quality. Call it the European model, where success is measured in decades, not vintages, and wine at its best reflects the vineyard instead of the cellar. We introduce you to Kapcsándy (cop-shondy), a winery with just that sensibility.
Founded by Lou Kapcsándy on the site of the State Lane property (the soul of Beringer’s Private Reserve Cabernet for more than 20 years), the vineyard was replanted under the guidance of famed consultant Helen Turley. The winery was then designed as a 100% functionally-driven facility… it is effectively a maternity ward for grapes and may be cleaner than hospital standards. Raised in the barrel by Denis Malbec (who was literally born at Château Latour), this is a project that bears the fingerprints of serious players. Lou’s Old World perspective as a native of Hungary and decades-long importer of Bordeaux is reflected in his wine. Working alongside his wife Bobbie and son Louis Jr., the goal is to deliver brilliant California fruit and flavor with guts, backbone and stuffing, the sort of red that can sit among the legendary first growths and convince experienced palates that it is one of them.
We can guarantee that getting on the inside track now with this thrilling new project will put you in prime position down the road, because it’s going to be scarce… the clock is ticking.
