2005 Grand-Vin Cabernet Sauvignon from Kapcsandy Family Winery—3-Bottle Set
Donors: Gretchen and Mark Banks
Cheers, wine lovers! Presenting a 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon from Kapcsandy Family Winery, an award-winning, small estate grown production winery in Napa Valley. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate scored this wine 98+ points, and said about it, “The wine is fragrant, with great intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and almost a Mouton-Rothschild-like crème de cassis element. This wine is drinking well now, but will continue to evolve for another two decades.” Makes a great gift for friends or to savor with a special meal.
