Continuum Oakville Red Blend 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Continuum is wonderfully balanced and deeply sensual wine; we believe it is the finest wine we have ever made. The 2008 has great density and life; a powerful core of ripe fruit perfectly balanced by polished, supple tannins leading to a long, nuanced finish. Aromas of black plum, mulberry, and coffee spice lead to black cherry, bitter chocolate, tobacco and graphite flavors. A wine of exquisite power and elegance, its inherent harmony and balance make it delicious now, while assuring tremendous ageabilty.

Continuum also needed the right soil; volcanic, iron rich soils no grow wins with great structure, focus and agebillty. Four generations and a lifetime of experience brought us to this estate on Pritchard Hill where the perfect combination of soils, exposure and climate are present to grow wine in the company of the world’s finest.
