 99 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of blueberries, blackcurrants, sage and mint. Lead pencil and graphite, too. Full body and ultra-fine tannins that are slowly transformed to ripe and beautiful fruit. Super polished and textured. Great finish. Drink in 2022, but it’s hard not to drink now. This harkens back to the great Mondavi reserves of the 1970s in texture and construction. (1/27/17)"

Made by winemaker Tim Mondavi, Robert Mondavi’s son, Continuum is a single estate wine from the Mondavi family’s hillside vineyards up on Pritchard Hill. With the 2014 vintage, the Mondavi family celebrates their 10th Continuum release. This wine, while having beautiful vibrancy and richness of body, is more approachable than the well-regarded 2013 vintage. It has all of the body and aging potential to carry forward for decades to come. This is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 15% Petit Verdot and 5% Merlot.

Tim Mondavi’s 41 acres of mature estate vineyard, with an average age of 20 years, has a variety of western and south facing aspects with plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Marcia Mondavi, Tim’s sister, works alongside him on this small, quality-driven project. All of the fruit is hand harvested , hand sorted and de-stemmed, and then gravity-fed into small French oak barrels. In the end, 30% of potential lots were de-classified, as they did not meet Continuum’s standards, and the wine typically spends 18-20 months in barrel.

Continuum Description

A dense purple robe and vibrant violet rim lead to aromas of cassis, cardamom, espresso and graphite. 2014 shows purity of site and fruit; a core of black plum and cherry, intertwined with layers of exotic spice, heightened by ripe, polished tannins, natural vibrancy and a long silky finish. This vintage reveals the harmonious balance of fruit, site and season from our Sage Mountain Vineyard at Continuum Estate.&nbs
