Rapszodia (Cabernet Franc), Kapcsándy Family Winery 2019

Tasting Notes

The 2019 Rapszodia, Kapcsándy's 100% Cabernet Franc, is one of the wines of the vintage. It marries sublime varietal intensity with off the charts textural richness and pure power. Rose petal, mint, crushed raspberry, blood orange and lavender are some of the notes that open with a bit of time. But more than that, the 2019 is an utterly brilliant wine that fully captures the potential of Franc here. It is a stunning, towering wine by any measure. My only regret is that Lou Kapcsándy did not live to see the accolades the 2019 Rapszodia is sure to garner. What a wine! 2027-2039

Deep purple-black, the 2019 Rapszodia—Kapcsandy's 100% Cabernet Franc cuvée—strides confidently out of the glass with classic notes of black cherry preserves, redcurrant jelly and black raspberries, plus hints of pencil shavings, bay leaves, unsmoked cigars and tapenade. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has amazing freshness and vibrancy, featuring crunchy black and red fruits with firm, fine-grained tannins and tons of freshness, finishing long and mineral laced. Another stunning vintage for this label! Aged in 80% new French oak, the alcohol is a relatively modest 14.3%. 120 cases were made. 2023-2043
