2008 Continuum Estate Red

2008 Continuum Estate Red

Robert Parker 96pts: "The 2008 Continuum is a striking wine endowed with gorgeous aromatics, expressive fruit and flat-out great balance. Espresso, grilled herbs, licorice and violets add complexity to the super-ripe black fruit. Despite the wine’s textural richness and opulence, there is plenty of underlying structure. This is a totally captivating wine. I can’t wait to taste it in another 5 years. In 2008 Continuum is 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot and 5% Merlot, most of which is estate grown fruit from the winery’s vineyards on Pritchard Hill. Fermentation and maceration was quite long, and averaged 35 days. The wine was aged in 100% new oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2028."

Producer's Notes: "Our fourth release, 2008, marks an exciting transition as 70% of the fruit is sourced from our estate vineyards on Pritchard Hill. Aromas of black plum, mulberry, and coffee spice lead to black cherry, tobacco, bitter chocolate, and graphite flavors. A wine of exquisite power and elegance, the 2008’s inherent harmony and balance make it delicious now, while assuring tremendous ageabilty."
