One of the more voluptuous, ample wines in this series, the 2011 Vecina is endowed with a real sense of class. Dark red and black fruit, smoke, new leather and licorice blossom in a surprisingly rich, powerful wine for the year. This super-expressive, resonant Cabernet Sauvignon hits all the right notes. Hints of sweet tobacco, licorice and menthol add the final notes of complexity. Robert Parker 94The 2011 Vecina Proprietary Red Blend possesses Pauillac-like notes of scorched earth, new saddle leather, spice box, vanillin and blackcurrants. With great fruit, stunning depth and a distinctive earthiness, this open-knit, opulent, juicy, fleshy 2011 should drink well for 15-20 years.
