Continuum Proprietary Blend Wine 2011

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The 2011 Continuum is a dark brooding beauty. The heavy presence of Petit Verdot 11% in this vintage is clearly felt in the wine s somber intense personality. The 2011 is going to require significant patience. It boasts superb density and pedigree but it was also bottled just a few months ago and is a bit unsettled at this stage. The 2011 was made from virtually all estate fruit with a splash of Petit Verdot from Mount Veeder. 95+ Antonio Galloni.

Continuum had to be a hillside site, on the east side of the valley with a westerly aspect. 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.
