Tasting Notes:

This rich, harmonious, supple-textured wine shows the potential of 2011, with dense dark berry, dried herb, mocha, cedar and tobacco leaf notes. Ends up dry and tannic, with a push of ripe fruit. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2024. 3,000 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

Another strong effort by Tim Mondavi from this relatively new project on Pritchard Hill, the 2011 Continuum’s final blend was 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 2% Merlot. Harvested late, between October 17 and November 3, it spent 19 months in 85% new French oak. The wine’s impressive deep ruby/plum/purple color is followed by notes of blackcurrants, black cherries and spring flowers. Like most 2011s, it has evolved early, but it is a medium to full-bodied beauty that represents one of the most successful wines of the vintage. Drink it now and over the next 12-16 years.
