2008 Endre, Kapcsándy

I was deeply impressed when I last year got the chance to taste the wines from Kapcsándy. But this wine, their "simplest" bottling (although there is nothing simple with this!), was not poured. I just had to try it!

2008 Endre, Kapcsándy
This 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot blend showcases a deep, creamy nose with gorgeous notes of ripe black currants, espresso, graphite, sweet violets and new leather. Very velvety and concentrated. Rich yet firm. Evolves all evening long. On day two it is a tad firmer. Needs time.
The taste is tight and pure with notes of black currants, plums, pencil shavings and cold coffee. The finish is long, structured and firm. Lots of velvety tannins. Again, a bit firmer and more tannins showing on day two. This is goood, but I would bet that 3-5 years in the cellar would make it even greater.
