Notes from the Winemaker:
2017 was a vintage of extremes, with abundant rain in the winter and record-breaking heat waves during the growing season. A testament in resiliency, the 2017 Continuum shows freshness, hinting at rose petal on the nose with cacao, black cherry and plum giving way to a plush, silky mid palate. Fine tannins of crushed stone and subtle undertones of tapenade are present through a beautifully persistent finish.

64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, 9% Petit Verdot, 9% Merlot


98 Points - James Suckling:

"Wonderful blackberry and blackcurrant aromas here with hints of mint and fresh sage. Some cassis. Wrought iron, too. Full-bodied, tight and elegant with lovely tension. Beautiful. Ends fine and focused. Drinkable now, but better after 2022."

96+ Points - Vinous:
"The 2017 Proprietary Red Wine Sage Mountain Vineyard comes across as remarkably primary. Bright red-toned fruit and floral notes give the 2017 striking freshness as well as nuance. Deep and layered on the palate, with superb depth, the 2017 Continuum is easily one of the wines of the year. Even in the early going, it is truly magnificent." Antonio Galloni - (Jan 2020)
