Vecina 2019 Bond
My pick of the 2019s from Bond is the 2019 Vecina, which originates from a terraced, east-facing vineyard near the Bond winery, in the western hills of Oakville. It offers tremendous complexity on the nose, with hints of bay leaf, dried sage and pine needles set against a core of ripe cherries and raspberries. In the mouth, it's silky and lush, with terrific length and vibrant fruit on the finish. Give it a few years of age, then drink it over the next two decades.

Blackberry, asphalt, leather and spice with dried flowers. Medium-to full-bodied with fine, layered tannins that are vertical and extremely deep and long. Super fine tannins. Seamless. Lasts for minutes. Graceful and thoughtful.
