Napa Valley Red Wine
Bond: Bill Harlan’s single vineyard Cabernet winery. Vecina is on the Oakville Bench, not far from Bond Winery. Volcanic, gravel, porous soils contribute to this wine’s power and age-ability. Tasted 3/3/2017: After a two hour decant...WOWZA. Super concentrated, all black fruits, luxardo cherries, dark chocolate fudge, cinnamon butter, graphite, forest floor. A mouthful of ecstasy. Cellar this Cabernet for decades if you'd like. It'll peak around 2025, we gather.
"VECINA is coined from the Spanish word for neighbor. This is our endeavor with the property situated directly southeast of the BOND winery. The beautifully terraced volcanic soil slopes of this property reside in Oakville's western foothills. The 11-acre site faces due east and is the recipient of cool morning sun. Vecina, which appeared with the 1999 vintage in the inaugural BOND release, is always powerful, intense and savory. Vecina's other hallmarks are blackberry fruit, with wild forest floor and mineral associated overtones.
SOIL: Bedrock overlain with fine grained alluvial wash.
