Description

100 – James Suckling
“This is sensational with blackberries, blueberries and mineral. Extremely floral, too. Full-bodied but so seamless and refined with polished tannins that just melts into the wine. Goes on for minutes. A subtle and glorious wine that will be a new classic for Napa Valley. An emotional red that touches your soul. Energy. 46% cabernet sauvignon, 31% cabernet franc, 17% petit verdot, and 6% merlot. Very approachable now but better in 2022.” (5/2017)

98+ – Antonio Galloni
“Continuum has been a deeply intriguing project from the very beginning, but in recent years Tim and Marcia Mondavi, along with their family, have taken their wines into the realm of the elite. I was super-impressed with all the wines I tasted during my most recent visit. Specically, the increased use of Cabernet Franc in the blends gives these wines an extra dimension of nuance that is breathtaking.” (AG) 98+ (3/2018)

97 – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“A blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc, 17% Petit Verdot and 6% Merlot, the 2015 Proprietary Red is deep garnet-purple colored and has a wonderfully vibrant, energy-charged nose of redcurrant jelly, Black Forest cake, black raspberries, cassis and licorice with nuances of dark chocolate, camphor, bouquet garni and tobacco plus a waft of cedar. The medium to full-bodied palate is super intense, featuring loads of red, black and blue fruit fireworks, framed by firm, grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing very long with a provocative herbal lift.” (2/2019) Lisa Perrotti-Brown
