Kapcsandy Family Winery Rapszodia 2017
VM97: The 2017 Rapszodia, made from 100% Cabernet Franc, is absolutely gorgeous. Varietal aromatics jump from the glass in a bright, nuanced wine that dazzles from start to finish. Sweet herbs, tobacco, cedar, red plum and mocha are some of the many notes that develop in the glass. Tremendously rich and sumptuous, the 2017 has so much to offer. This is an impressive showing from Kapcsándy and easily one of the finer wines of the year.
JD94: Looking at the 2017 Rapszodia, this is all Cabernet Franc from the Kapcsandy Vineyard located around the estate. It has terrific Franc character in its spicy red and black fruits, forest floor, scorched earth, tobacco, and charcoal aromatics. Medium to full-bodied and nicely concentrated on the palate, with good acidity, it has firm, chewy tannins that warrant 3-4 years of bottle age.
