Continuum 2018 er en av de beste årgangene som er laget av Tim Mondavi. Wine Advocate gir den 98-100 poeng. 2016 og 2017 var også helt fantastiske, men værforholdene i 2018 var visstnok helt perfekte. Se hva far og datter sier om 2018 årgangen.
Allokeringene er små og kun 240 fl blir allokert til det norske og finske markedet av denne årgangen.
Dette sier Wine Advocate:
"This 2018 Continuum joins the ranks of Napa’s most legendary wines and is a vintage that I urge fans not to miss!
Composed of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc, 9% Petit Verdot and 6% Merlot, the deep garnet-purple 2018 Proprietary Red has a fantastically fragrant nose of candied violets, red roses, Morello cherries and blackcurrant pastilles with hints of wild blueberries, red currant jelly, iron ore and forest floor, plus a waft of cinnamon stick. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is completely packed with tightly wound black and red berry layers, framed by firm, ripe, finely grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with incredibly persistent and evocative floral and mineral layers. An absolute head-turner, this 2018 is all that and then some. Tim Mondavi mentioned that this is due to be bottled in just a few weeks—mid-August—meaning this barrel sample I tasted is pretty close to being a finished wine. With the estate vineyard turning 10 year's old in 2018, here's where we see how incredibly special this singular Pritchard Hill site really is.
