2011 Bond "Vecina" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1200639 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark ) The 2011 Vecina is dark, savory and beautifully layered, as wines from this Oakville site tend to be. Medium in body, the 2011 has reached is first plateau of maturity. All the elements are so well balanced. Dried herbs, leather, tobacco, cedar and iron are woven throughout a core of dark fruit in this expressive Cabernet from Vine Hill Ranch, one of the finest sites in all of Napa Valley. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2022)

94 points James Suckling

K&L Notes

92+ points, Stephen Tanzer in Vinous: "Full medium ruby. Quite tight and a bit of a shock on the nose following the explosive 2012, with black cherry and licorice aromas showing a slight herbal greenness. Penetrating flavors of black fruits, licorice, mint and herbs are accented by spices and pepper. In a distinctly medicinal style, finishing with serious, slightly dry-edged tannins. Comes across as much less dense and rich than the 2012 but this is still folded in on itself." (06/2017)
