Almost by virtue of the vines’ collective wisdom, bloom occurred later than normal allowing Vecina to avoid the reduced fruit-set that affected many sites. The overhead canopy of these tall-statured vines served to protect the clusters during the summer months, and ushered them gracefully to an anticipated harvest.
Roasted coffee, embers, and a mix of red and dark fruit are the forces that drive the aromatics. The wine is intensely vertical, but between the typical layers of fleshy tannins there are equal parts air and juiciness that bring levity and detail. The finish seems almost infinite, as ripe fruit slowly transitions over several minutes to fine salinity.
