Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Continuum Proprietary Red Wine 2019

2019 Continuum is a singularly significant vintage marking the families of Tim and Marcia Mondavi’s 100th consecutive harvest in wine.

The 2019 Continuum vintage expression is an elevated and lush dance of power and grace. The highest percentage of Cabernet Franc to date, this wine shows a lively nose with lifted hibiscus and floral notes. The entry on the palate reveals a generous dark fruit expression, with youthful black mulberry, savory wild herb and a ferrous minerality. Exquisitely balanced, 2019 Continuum is deliciously approachable now, and will continue to evolve and improve through time.

Critic Ratings

James Suckling Review - Published March 3, 2022 - Rated 99:
Blackberries, dark wet soil and blackcurrants. Graphite, too. So aromatic. Pure fruit. Full-bodied with superbly polished, fine tannins that draw you down through the center of palate. Extremely layered and the texture is so curated, giving wonderful persistence. Real plushness and fine, velvety texture. 50% cabernet sauvignon, 37% cabernet franc, 7% petit verdot and 6% merlot. Better after 2026.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 98:
Continuum's 2019 Proprietary Red is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot and 6% Merlot, all from the estate vineyard on Pritchard Hill. Aged in two-thirds new French oak, with the balance in second or third-use barrels and a single concrete amphora, it's remarkably dark in hue, a deep, saturated purple in the glass. On the nose, it's floral and herbal yet fruit-driven, with violets, sage and bay leaf adding nuance to black cherries, while the palate is full-bodied, plush and silky. There's an enticing yin-yang to the interplay between high-toned herbals and bass notes of dark chocolate in this dense, concentrated effort that finishes lush and long. It's a magnificent wine that should drink well for at least two decades.

Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 95:
From the mighty estate site on Pritchard Hill, this robustly muscular wine consists of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Cabernet Franc (the highest amount ever), 7% Petit Verdot and 6% Merlot. Herbal, it shows notes of violet, graphite and tobacco alongside layers of rich red and black currant. The tannins are substantial and grippy, not quite ready to play nice on the palate. Lay this one down and enjoy it best 2029.
