    Pork Tenderloin Wrapped with Pancetta

One of the more voluptuous, ample wines in this series, the 2011 Vecina is endowed with a real sense of class. Dark red and black fruit, smoke, new leather and licorice blossom in a surprisingly rich, powerful wine for the year. This super-expressive, resonant Cabernet Sauvignon hits all the right notes. Hints of sweet tobacco, licorice and menthol add the final notes of complexity. 

95 Points /Antonio Galloni, vinous (December 2014)

The Story

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. Eastern Exposure.

Written Notes

Good looking normal size bottle. Colour is deep. On the nose it is intense, fresh and pure. The taste is elegant, fragrant, vivid, toasty, firm, refined, with high tannin ., with silky tannins, drying tannins, and average in acidity, full-bodied, with balanced, concentrated and well-integrated structure. The finish is long, flavorful, pure, spicy and vibrant. This wine is sophisticated, fine and outstanding. Perfectly stored bottles are still very worthy and will last well for another 10-15 years and decant at least over 4h before tasting.
