Continuum Estate 2017 Continuum Proprietary Red

2017 was a vintage of extremes, with abundant rain in the winter months and record-breaking heat waves during the growing season. A testament in resiliency, the wine bears the hallmarks of the elevation and terroir at Sage Mountain Vineyard, showcasing exquisite vibrancy, many layers of flavor, ferrous minerality and fragrant wild herb notes. 2017 Continuum shows freshness, hinting at rose petal on the nose with cacao, black cherry and plum giving way to a plush, silky mid palate. Fine tannins of crushed stone and subtle undertones of tapenade are present through a beautifully persistent finish. Blend: 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, 9% Petit Verdot, 9% Merlot

James Suckling - 98 Points: "Wonderful blackberry and blackcurrant aromas here with hints of mint and fresh sage. Some cassis. Wrought iron, too. Full-bodied, tight and elegant with lovely tension. Beautiful. Ends fine and focused. Drinkable now, but better after 2022."

The Philosophy

Continuum is a single red wine produced with clarity of focus at the highest quality level; it is also an opportunity for us to do what we do best. Continuum expresses my family’s unique understanding of and expertise with Cabernet family varieties grown in the Napa Valley. For 4 generations, the Mondavi family has grown and produced wines to stand in the company of the worlds’ finest. My grandfather Cesare first brought wine to the table but it was my father Robert’s pursuit of excellence that inspired my family’s vision. Today my sister Marcia and I, with our children and team, are committed to this continuum of excellence, innovation and tradition.
