2014 Bond "Vecina" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1357927 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Vecina displays a deep garnet-purple color and has a broody, baked blueberries, cassis and anise-laced nose with suggestions of garrigue, dusty earth and bay leaves. Full-bodied, rich, spicy and powerful in the mouth, it offers a lot of latent layers and promises great, great things to come with an incredibly long, layered finish. It needs a bit of time but should cellar beautifully for a good 25 years+. (LPB) 98+ Inner quote mark (10/2017)

Outer quote mark Another awesome wine is the 2014 Vecina and it’s from a vineyard on the western side of the valley, right up next to Harlan Estate. This deep, full-bodied, seriously concentrated 2014 gives up loads of plums, currants, toasty oak, chocolate, and chalky minerality. It picks up a touch of violets with time in the glass, but the theme here is deep, dark fruit and minerality. With the forward, supple style of the vintage, it still has serious concentration and structure, and is going to be long-lived. Inner quote mark (12/2017)

97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark One of the most expressive wines in this range, the 2014 Vecina is powerful, dense and explosive. Despite its obvious intensity, the 2014 has quite a bit of detail and nuance. Time in the glass unleashes the wine's natural intensity, volume and power. The huge, savory and mineral-drenched finish only adds to the wine's immeasurable beauty. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very aromatic and lively aromas with dark berries, fresh mushrooms and flowers. Full-bodied, very tight and tannic with dark chocolate powder and blue fruits. Shows muscle. Drink in 2023. Inner quote mark (5/2018)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A mix of creamy, toasty oak casts a large shadow but the fruit underneath is rich and up to the task, folding in nicely and adding dimension, body and length to the core flavors. (JL) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

K&L Notes

95+ points, Stephen Tanzer in Vinous: "Dark ruby. Terrific lift and precision to the aromas of blackberry, licorice, flowers, minerals and dark chocolate. Extremely concentrated, primary and firmly built, with the flavors of blackberry, huckleberry, licorice and bitter chocolate enlivened by a violet topnote. This wonderfully dense, energetic wine shows powerful medicinal reserve and a serious tannic spine for long aging. Although it's backward, chewy and tight right now, it displays a sneaky sweetness and no hard edges." (06/2017)
