Continuum Proprietary Red Napa Valley 2008, 750mL (AG95, WA96, ST95, WS96) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Continuum Proprietary Red Napa Valley

750mL

Vintage: 2008
Region: US
Appellation: Napa
Condition: ssos

AG95, WA96, ST95, WS96
Rated 96 points by the Wine Advocate: Antonio Galloni in Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2008 Continuum is a striking wine endowed with gorgeous aromatics, expressive fruit and flat-out great balance. Espresso, grilled herbs, licorice and violets add complexity to the super-ripe black fruit. Despite the wine`s textural richness and opulence, there is plenty of underlying structure. This is a totally captivating wine. I can`t wait to taste it in another 5 years. In 2008 Continuum is 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot and 5% Merlot, most of which is estate grown fruit from the winery`s vineyards on Pritchard Hill. Fermentation and maceration was quite long, and averaged 35 days. The wine was aged in 100% new oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2028.`Additional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `I was super-impressed with the two wines I tasted from Continuum Estate, Tim Mondavi`s new venture on Pritchard Hill, not far from Chappellet and Bryant. Mondavi is gradually moving towards 100% estate fruit, but these early vintages include some fruit from vineyards in Oakville and Stags Leap. Continuum is distinguished by a fairly large presence of Cabernet Franc. This is one of the most exciting new properties in Napa Valley.`
