Novicium completes the definition of a great estate. A wine fully grown, produced, and bottled from our Sage Mountain Vineyard. It is a balanced, nuanced, and age-worthy wine that demonstrates our constant pursuit to study and improve the art of winegrowing.
Novicium is the second wine of this estate but it is also a vision into the future. It is the vehicle that has directly influenced the direction of our farming, and, over time, has enhanced the nuance of Continuum’s expression of this site. Since its inaugural vintage in 2010, Novicium has emerged as an esteemed expression of this powerful site in its own right.
2020 Novicium has power and generosity while also being lifted and lithe on the palate. The wine offers plush black cherry, bramble and hints of wild rose. Tannins are silky and supple from entry through the finish, with savory notes of forest floor, incense and bay laurel harmonizing with the darker blue and black fruit profile.
The 2020 Novicium blend consists of:
76% Cabernet Sauvignon
6% Cabernet Franc
5% Petit Verdot
