Continuum

Continuum is our commitment to produce a single red wine at the highest level. The 2006 Continuum is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 16% Petit Verdot The 2006 Continuum is a beautifully luminous, vibrant and persistent wine. Superbly balanced, the '06 exhibits textbook ripeness with a long, velevety finish. Aromas of blackberry, rose petal, leather and Indian spices precede licorice, cocoa butter and graphite flavors.

Wine Advocate

The 2006 Continuum is composed of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 16% Petit Verdot. Its opaque purple color is followed by a rich, sumptuous bouquet of blackberries, creme de cassis, incense, graphite, and a hint of burning embers. This powerful, full-bodied, rich wine possesses considerable precision as well as purity. Drink 2011-2041.

Score: 96. —Robert Parker, December 2009.

Wine Spectator

Rich dark chocolate, mocha and espresso here, along with a wealth of ripe, currant-laced Cabernet fruit. Focused, tight, elegant and stylish, with a persistent finish that keeps unfolding to reveal hidden nuances. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2010 through 2017.

Score: 95. —James Laube, 2009.

Wine Enthusiast

Tim Mondavi and family strive to join the pantheon of cult wine with this, his second vintage of a Cab-based Bordeaux blend. It's quite good, a soft, complex wine of luxurious texture and deep, impressive flavors of splendidly ripe blackberries and cherries, anise, chocolate and smoky cedar.

Score: 93. —Steve Heimoff, September 01, 2009.
