A juicy, flamboyant wine, the 2012 Continuum captures the personality of the year from the very first taste. Here the flavors are bold and racy to the core, with pungent dark red fruit and spice dominating. The new French oak (75%) is a bit pronounced today. Otherwise, this is a fine showing. The 2012 needs a bit more time to shed some baby fat, but it will offer its finest drinking earlier than most other vintages.
Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027
