Winemaker Notes

The 2007 Continuum is a richly aromatic wine showing great balance and finesse on the palate. A unique blend, Continuum expresses the nerve and power of the Cabernet Sauvignon, the structure and exotic aromas of the Cabernet Franc and the depth and density of color of the Petit Verdot. The 2007 blend manifests this in firm yet supple tannins, a generous mid-palate with a long, nuanced finish making for a very textural, silky wine. Aromas of black currant, mulberry,... View More

Critical Acclaim

RP 98
The Wine Advocate

A glorious blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc and 18% Petit Verdot, it boasts an inky/purple color as well as an extraordinary perfume of blueberries, blackberries, spring flowers and subtle hints of burning embers and earth. Akin to the seamlessness of haute couture from the likes of Chanel, the integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol and wood has been brilliantly accomplished by Mondavi. This textured, opulent, full-bodied wine cuts a lacy, graceful texture across the palate. A tour de force in winemaking, it is a profound wine from someone who has been front and center during the golden age of California Cabernet Sauvignon as well as the revolution in quality begun by his father. Drinkable now, drinkable in ten years and exquisite in two decades, it is not to be missed.

Wine Enthusiast

Feels fancy and important in the mouth, with pure, refined tannins housing ripe, complex flavors of blackberries, black currants, cherries, chocolate, exotic spices and sweet, smoky oak. The finish is dry but with a tinge of sweetness, like an infused blackberry liqueur, which probably is the result of high (15.3%) alcohol. Very rich and layered, and a great addition to the Napa cult pantheon. Cabernet, with Cab Franc and Petit Verdot.

Wine Spectator

A wonderful expression of Cabernet, sleek and polished, with a mix of rich, layered black cherry, currant, wild berry and plum fruit that's intense, concentrated, focused and stylish, turning spicy, with cedary anise and sage notes on a long, persistent finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2020.

Vinous / Antonio Galloni

Full, bright ruby. Blackberry, blueberry, violet, licorice and wild herbs on the dark, high-pitched nose; the wine's Cabernet Franc component contributes perfume and lift. Pure silk on entry, then tight and youthful in the middle palate, with strong, nicely integrated acidity shaping and intensifying the flavors of blackberry, blueberry, crushed rock, violet and bitter chocolate. Delivers an uncanny balance of sweetness, acidity, minerality and floral lift and finishes with compelling perfume and resounding length. This wonderfully subtle wine should evolve positively in bottle for another 15 to 20 years and has some fireworks ahead of it. With 24 hours in the recorked bottle, it became a bit more liqueur-like but its thickness was perfected framed and supported by firm acidity. Rating: 91(+) Points.
