Region: Oakville, Napa Valley, USA
Varietal: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 15% Petit Verdot & 5% Merlot
Tasting Notes: A dense purple robe and vibrant violet rim lead to aromas of cassis, cardamom, espresso and graphite. 2014 shows purity of site and fruit; a core of black plum and cherry, intertwined with layers of exotic spice, heightened by ripe, polished tannins, natural vibrancy and a long silky finish. This vintage reveals the harmonious balance of fruit, site and season from our Sage Mountain Vineyard at Continuum Estate.
Owned by Tim Mondavi, Robert Mondavi's son. The 2014 vintage celebrates the 10th Continuum release. This wine, while having beautiful vibrancy and richness of body, is more approachable than the well-regarded 2013 vintage. It has all the body and age worthiness to carry forward for decades to come.
