CONTINUUM 2010 PROPRIETARY RED ESTATE NAPA VALLEY 750mL

ROBERT PARKER 97 POINTS - “This has been an impressive, serious wine since the debut vintage, and Tim Mondavi’s estate high on Pritchard Hill has fashioned a 2010 blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 11% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot. Gorgeously ripe, intricate and nuanced, with aromas of spring flowers and red and black fruits, a stunning texture, sweet tannin, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and undeniable elegance and finesse, this complex beauty cascades over the palate without a hard edge to be found. It is a tribute to Mondavi's long resumé of skillful winemaking. Black currants, blueberries and a touch of raspberries are all compelling and persistent. Drink this gorgeous Napa red now and over the next 15+ years.”

Tim Mondavi does, in fact, continue his family’s legacy for producing one of the best Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines in the Napa Valley! This incredible wine comes from the family’s property in an area the Napa locals call Pritchard Hill, located on the western hills above Oakville. Continuum’s 38-acre estate vineyard features a variety of western and south facing aspects with plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot. After grapes are harvested, Tim employs a strict sorting process, throwing away grape clusters that don’t look perfect, and then doing the same process berry-by-berry after destemming! The grapes had a lengthy maceration time, ranging from 26-42 days to get the most aromatics, flavors and textures possible. Even after all that, when the best possible blend was finished, 25% of the wine was declassified because it did not improve the wine. We would say Tim and family did the job right, because this just earned 97 points from Robert Parker!
