A glorious blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc and 18% Petit Verdot, it boasts an inky/purple color as well as an extraordinary perfume of blueberries, blackberries, spring flowers and subtle hints of burning embers and earth. Akin to the seamlessness of haute couture from the likes of Chanel, the integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol and wood has been brilliantly accomplished by Mondavi. This textured, opulent, full-bodied wine cuts a lacy, graceful texture across the palate. A tour de force in winemaking, it is a profound wine from someone who has been front and center during the golden age of California Cabernet Sauvignon as well as the revolution in quality begun by his father. Drinkable now, drinkable in ten years and exquisite in two decades, it is not to be missed.
A wonderful expression of Cabernet, sleek and polished, with a mix of rich, layered black cherry, currant, wild berry and plum fruit that's intense, concentrated, focused and stylish, turning spicy, with cedary anise and sage notes on a long, persistent finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2020.
“Artistic wine is an expression of man’s harmony with nature. For four generations our family has created a continuum of wine excellence, enhancing the celebration of life.”
– Tim Mondavi, Proprietor
Founded in 2005 by Robert Mondavi and two of his children, Tim and Marcia, Continuum is a winery located in the unofficial appellation of Pritchard Hill in Napa Valley. Although it was not until 2012 that the winery was entirely sourcing their fruit from the estate, they have always taken pride in obtaining grapes from some of the best vineyards in the valley including Marjorie’s Vineyard and To Kalon. The winery’s flagship wine is a Bordeaux-style red dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, and sells out mainly through allocation. Continuum also makes a second label, Novicium, which is Merlot-dominant and made from newer plots on the estate.
