Weingut über: Vecina

-- Weingut: Almost as if anticipating the events that would transpire, this normally late-ripening site rallied from the onset with an unusually early budbreak. The growing season progressed without significant events. Harvest began on September 9th and concluded on September 27th.From the beginning of aging, this Vecina has been a beacon, beckoning the other crus to follow. Aromatically the wine is vibrant, displaying its classic dried herbs and dark fruit, but with even greater life and dimension. The vertical nature of the wine does not impose, but impresses and inspires a reverence in the solidarity of this site. The savory 2017 is yet full of vitality and energy; its structural lines are more chiseled and defined than in other vintages.

Galloni über: Vecina

-- Galloni: The 2017 Vecina is outrageously beautiful. Inky and deep, it possesses stunning richness, power and structure. Its pedigree and sheer beauty are immediately evident. Over the last year, the 2017 has gained quite a bit of depth and overall resonance I did not see in the barrel samples. As a reminder, Vecina is sourced from Vine Hill Ranch, specifically Block 6 Upper, one of the best locations on the ranch. 97/100

Parker über: Vecina

-- Parker: Vecina vineyard is located in the western foothills of Oakville, just to the southeast of the winery (up on Oakville Grade). Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Vecina needs a little coaxing to reveal notes of black currants, blackberries and blueberry compote with hints of dusty soil, cinnamon stick and fallen leaves. Slightly more structured than the other Bond 2017s, it has a rock-solid backbone of firm, grainy tannins and bold freshness supporting the muscular black and blue fruit flavors, finishing long and earthy. It will likely need a little longer to come around than its siblings, but it should also be longer lived. 97/100

Jeb Dunnuck über: Vecina

-- Jeb Dunnuck: I think the standout at this point is the 2017 Vecina, but we’re splitting hairs. Coming from an east-facing site not far from Harlan Estate, it has a magical sense of minerality as well as classic Cabernet notes of crème de cassis, crushed flowers, toasted bread, and leafy herbs. Rich, full-bodied, concentrated, and just perfectly balanced, it’s going to flirt with perfection and have 25-30 years of prime drinking. 96-98/100
