    October 3, 2015 - A two hour decant did not even touch this. Don't drink for at least 5 years.

    February 28, 2015 - Saturday Night Cali Cabs (Our House (2033 Brandywine)): Impressive but ultimately a couple of nits. This is rather big on the nose bursting with dark fruits, sweet and bitter. On the palate, there is a mild but noticeable green or herbal note. Not off putting but its there. The fruit is dense on the palate but this lacked a bit of acidity to balance it out. Seemed like the fruit dominated without enough structure. This clearly has the pedigree and these Bond wines can be absolutely terrific. That said, again, there are too many nits for a wine with this price tag.

    March 8, 2014 - Decanted for 4 hours. This wine is big in every way. Lots of dark fruit, licorice, leather, and a nice minerality followed by big firm tannins. The tannins help balance out the fruit which makes it surprisingly approachable. Looking forward to seeing how this wine will continue to develop.

    December 25, 2013 - A delicious wine, perfect for Christmas dinner. As dark a purple as one could imagine, nearly black. Aromas are concentrated yet very precise: black cherries, cassis, toffee. Sweet and rich on the palate, endless length. My only real criticism is that the wine is a bit blurred by the richness that makes it so soft and approachable; I prefer a more sculpted, delineated style of cabernet. But Vecina, among the Bond lineup, isn't as terroir-driven as some of its siblings, so one shouldn't ask for the impossible...
