Playing catch up on some bottles. When I get offers from the Harlan/Bond/Promontory/Maiden family I always pull the trigger on the Bond and get a single from each “terroir” and Vecina is the most consistently spectacular (although Pluribus is my favorite most years). A very muscular wine with teeth staining purple fruit, supple rich tannins and a burnt cedar mixed with chocolate lava taste profile. This was decanted at home for 2 hours, returned to the bottle and decanted for an additional hour at the restaurant. You can’t go wrong with Bond. Yes I know the prices are getting more and more lofty but to me Delectable is about what’s in the bottle. I certainly wouldn’t recommend you buy a Vecina over buying baby formula or making a car payment....but it is an undeniable guilty expensive pleasure.

Bramble and toffee on the nose. Dark chocolate and a lifted blackberry note dominates the palate with silken tannins. Very friendly

Gotta love Napa and gotta love Cab with about a decade and a half of patience.
