CONTINUUM 2011 PROPRIETARY RED NAPA VALLEY 750mL

Continuum celebrates the ongoing legacy of the Mondavi familyís proud history in Napa Valley. It represents a new beginning, and reaffirms their longstanding commitment to winemaking excellence. At the helm is Tim Mondavi who led the winemaking team at Robert Mondavi Winery for 30 years. He is joined in guiding the vision and direction by his sister Marcia, his son Dante, his late fatherís wife Margrit, and Carissa Mondavi. Carissa and Dante are the third generation to join the winery. Continuum's vineyard resides on atop Pritchard Hill in Napa Valley. This mountainous region is rocky, volcanic soils with a high iron content. This brings concentration and complexity to the wine, something that is prominent to Continuum's neighbors, such as Ovid, Chappellet, Bryant, David Arthur, and Stagecoach Vineyard. This year's release is comprised of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 11% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Merlot.

ANTONIO GALLONI 95+ POINTS - "The 2011 Continuum is a dark, brooding beauty. The heavy presence of Petit Verdot, 11% in this vintage, is clearly felt in the wineís somber, intense personality. The 2011 is going to require significant patience. It boasts superb density and pedigree, but it was also bottled just a few months ago, and is a bit unsettled at this stage. The 2011 was made from virtually all estate fruit, with a splash of Petit Verdot from Mount Veeder."
