“This is sensational with blackberries, blueberries and mineral. Extremely floral, too. Full-bodied but so seamless and refined with polished tannins that just melts (sic) 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 touched your soul. Energy. 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc, 17% Petit Verdot, and 6% Merlot. Very approachable now but better in 2022. ”

“Bottled just a few months ago, the 2015 Continuum is shaping up to be a real gem. The flavors are dark, bold and incisive. In 2015, poor weather during flowering took with it 50% of the production in Continuum’s prime Cabernet Sauvignon blocks. As a result, the 2015 has a high percentage (31%) of Cabernet Franc. Today, the Franc is keeping the wine a bit clenched, but that should be less of an issue as time passes.”

“Once again, iconic vigneron Tim Mondavi has crafted an exceptionally well balanced Cabernet blend from his now-flourishing vines on his Pritchard Hill Estate property. This new 2015 release launches forth with alluring notes of mocha and currants with hints of savoury herbs and black truffles. The tantalizing finish features espresso and dark chocolate enveloped by prodigious tannins that show a purity that bodes well for aging through 2025 but don’t hesitate to pop a cork tonight (decanting recommended) for supreme enjoyment. ”
