Region: Oakville, Napa Valley, USA
Varietal: 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc, 9% Petit Verdot & 6% Merlot
Tasting Notes: The 2018 Continuum shows energy and verve. The wine expresses purity and precision, with high tone aromatics of red and blue fruit, deep plum and rose oil. This vintage shows an approachable nerve of the land in the refined mineral quality on the palate. The surrounding native vegetation of bay and sage is evidenced in an earthy, savory profile. This is a shimmering, silky and harmoniously integrated wine with densely packed fine grain tannins. 2018 Continuum is a wine for the ages, delicious today with a long life ahead.
