Bond Estate, Cabernet Sauvignon, Vecina, Oakville, Napa Valley 2017
The vision at BOND is to source Cabernet Sauvignon from the finest hillside estates in the Napa Valley. The aim is to showcase the diverse geographic terroir of the region and only produce wine that is 'Grand Cru' in quality. BOND vividly demonstrate the range of Napa Valley's finest terroirs, all under the umbrella of one philosophy, one team, one mark.
VECINA is coined from the Spanish word for neighbor. This is the 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. The soil is made of bedrock overlain with fine grained alluvial wash with an elevation of 330 feet.
