Winemaker Notes

The 2012 Roberta's Reserve offers a fabulous perfume of graphite, espresso, melted chocolate and creme de casis. The gorgeous bouquet is followed by a full bodied, voluptuously textured wine that is one of the riches, most concentrated Merlot-based wines made in California.

Critical Acclaim

RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 100% Merlot cuvee, the 2012 Roberta's Reserve State Lane Vineyard is, once again, flirting with perfection. A stunning nose of chocolate fudge intermixed with coffee bean, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit is intense, and followed by a full-bodied, gorgeously textured, opulent style of wine with stunning richness and purity. This is a brilliant wine and only represents 12% of the production, as only 300 cases were produced. It should drink well for 20-25 years.
JS 98
James Suckling
This is a superb merlot with black olive, blueberry, iodine, and oyster shell. Full body, tight tannins. Chocolate, walnut, and bramble berry. Superb finish. A beauty. Try now but give it four to five years of bottle age. Decant before serving now.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
A distinctive Merlot that combines muscle with richness. Bold aromas of red currant and tomato leaf lead to rich, complex flavors of cherry, olive and dark Asian spice. The tannins are big but fleshy. Merlot. Drink now through 2023. 200 cases made.

The Kapcsandy story is a classic American story on how to succeed in the land of opportunity with hard work and determination.

After fleeing his homeland in the days after the brutal crushing by the Soviet Army of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, Lou Sr. came to America and eventually settled in the San Francisco Bay Area. He married Roberta Henson in 1964, eventually settled in Seattle, Washington at the end of 1973, with their son, Louis Jr.

In 1998, on a visit to Bordeaux, France, Lou and Bobbie experienced a seminal moment that ironically set them on the path of being vineyard owners themselves. With great anticipation, Lou and Bobbie arrived at the centuries-old estate Leoville Las Cases (St. Julien), on a beutiful summer day, on invite for a private luncheon hosted by the estates' patriarch, Michel Delon. Over the course of the next five hours they were astounded by Mr. Delon's warmth and generosity, as was Mr. Delon fascinated by Lou's encyclopedic knowledge of not just the wines and history of Leoville Las Cases and Bordeaux, but of Burgundy, Champagne and the American estates and their terriors Lou was convinced could rival their hallowed French counterparts.
