Big Scores! Continuum

A Perfect 100 for 2015 Continuum!
It was bound to happen. Tim Mondavi and family have been absolutely fanatical about making a Napa Icon from their amazing vineyard on Prichard Hll.
2015 Continuum Estate Red....$219.98 / 750ml

2015 Continuum Estate Red....$109.98 / 375ml
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.
Rated 100/100 James Suckling
