2005 Bond "Vecina" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1054091 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Vecina is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in 100% new oak, like the other cuvées. It is from an 11-acre site directly southeast of the Bond Winery, close to Harlan Estate. This wine tends to be the closest to the Harlan Estate in quality, with notes of new saddle leather, blackberry, roasted coffee and a hint of chocolate -- and again -- graphite and subtle smoke. Opaque purple, but still incredibly youthful, the wine is spicy, intense, full-bodied and majestic. There is a deep tone to this massive Cabernet Sauvignon, which is set for another 25 or 30 years of life, although it certainly is accessible at present. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dense, powerful and explosive, the 2005 Vecina is superb. The barest hints of aromatic development come through. Although the 2005 can probably be enjoyed now with some air, I would prefer to cellar it, as the future for this wine is unquestionably very, very bright. (AG) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Very refined, with lovely perfume. Heady, showing currants, cassis, cedar, chocolate-covered cherries and sweet herbs. Decadent, classy, elegant, with a great tannin structure. Just oozes class. Inner quote mark (5/2009)

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep ruby-red. Black cherry, blueberry, licorice and minerals on the nose, lifted by a violet topnote. More densely packed and sweet than the 2006, and showing much more personality. A slightly high-toned suggestion of exotic dark berry fruits is perfectly countered by harmonious acidity that leavens the wine's sweetness. This tactile, chewy, highly concentrated wine really spreads out to saturate the palate. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins, a suggestion of chocolatey ripeness and terrific rising length. Boasts lovely definition from start to finish. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2017)
