Continuum Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2010

$399.99

Continuum is the new tiny production Cabernet from the Mondavi Family. These are rare MAGNUMS (1.5L).  previous vintage 94 Points Robert Parker: "The Continuum comes across as much more understated next to the 2008. It has plenty of silkiness and finesse, but less of the size and shape of its older sibling. Dark cherries, espresso, exotic spices and licorice are woven together in a fabric of notable elegance and harmony. The 2009 Continuum is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot, 82% of which came from estate-grown fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024...I was super-impressed with the two wines I tasted from Continuum Estate, Tim Mondavi’s new venture on Pritchard Hill, not far from Chappellet and Bryant. Mondavi is gradually moving towards 100% estate fruit, but these early vintages include some fruit from vineyards in Oakville and Stags Leap. Continuum is distinguished by a fairly large presence of Cabernet Franc. This is one of the most exciting new properties in Napa Valley."

Ranked 2 in this blind tasting. The nose alone is worth the price. Stellar wine from fruit to finish. Power but holding back. Great wine.

Uncle Tim strikes again!!! Another wonderful wine. Great balance with beautiful tannin integration. Lively fruit and a classic handle in balancing all arrivistes. Red and dark fruits with Loganberry memories.

En mag and enjoyed with Beef Wellington this strutted from the start. Black fruit profile, smoke and sweet cassis. Elegant and strong like a thoroughbred

So a day after infecting my knees with cortisone I played my usual Saturday morning golf round and j sucked - so bad i lost a bet - so opened a bottle early - no decanting - I was shocked - GREAT wine - this is a great cab blend and I was worried as they picked this this wine from my cellar - man I was surprised - totally surprised - it is great - well done Tim M - well done - Notes are big bold and great smell - fruit forward with fresh-cut flowers, balanced tannins and prefect dark berry flavors. Thank you and so glad I bought a ton of 10-12 - I will@be buying the 13s as well - really big

Everything in place for a young opulent Cab. Ready to go after a 2 hour decant. Great texture and weight, elegant wine really showing the Cab Franc tonight. Dark currant and sweet earth, inviting floral notes in the glass.
