Continuum Estate is a project from the Mondavi family, one of the foremost names in the world of fine wine. The late Robert Mondavi is credited with bringing worldwide attention to Napa Valley through his pioneering work at his namesake winery in the 1960s and later with Opus One, but by the early 2000s, the Mondavi name lost some of its luster due to its association with mass market brands like Woodbridge. In response to this, the Mondavis redoubled their commitment to excellence in winemaking and launched Continuum with the stated ambition of producing a new California First Growth from a single estate vineyard high on Pritchard Hill. Today, Continuum is widely recognized as one of the finest Cabernet blends produced in Napa Valley, and Estate Wine Brokers is proud to present an offering of the 2015 vintage which received a perfect 100 points from critic James Suckling:
Continuum Proprietary Red Sage Mountain Vineyard 2015 750ml - $225 each
100 Points 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. (JS)” (05/2017)
As with all of our fall allocations, quantities are extremely limited, so act now to add this 100 pointer to your collection.
