Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92(+?)

(75% cabernet sauvignon 12% petit verdot, 11% cabernet franc and 2% merlot): Full ruby-red. Sexy, slightly liqueur-like aromas of currant, plum syrup, licorice, menthol and iron. Spicy and energetic but with a soft, creamy middle giving the wine considerable early appeal. Not a hugely fleshy or structured cabernet but offers lovely restrained sweetness and inner-mouth aromatic character. Finishes with building, slightly tough mountain tannins that call for four or five years of patience.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

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.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

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.
