    Continuum Red 2005
    Bottle (3)

    "This impressive project of Tim Mondavi, from high on Pritchard Hill, has produced a wine that represents an innovative blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc and 19% Petit Verdot with 14.5% alcohol. Mondavi’s Midas Touch and his vast experience have turned out a gorgeous 2005 Proprietary Red that is still youthful and tastes more like a two- or three-year-old wine than one that’s already a decade old. The dense ruby/purple color offers up notes of incense, floral notes, graphite and subtle background earth and flowers. There is ripe fruit, and when the wine hits the palate, it builds incrementally to a medium to full-bodied, pure, delicious and complex beverage. It has a distinctive persistence and holding power, with a sense of elegance and lightness. This is a beautiful example of what Napa continues to do, which is to turn out wines that have great ripeness, intensity and power, but are light on their feet. This beauty should continue to drink well for another 20-25 years, if not longer." (96 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #219, June 2015)
