Very good wine but young. Decanted for an hour but could have used more time. Bright ripe red fruit in the nose mixed in with spice, caramel and oak. Mellow taste with spice, oak and red fruit under it. Medium finished. Opened up as dinner went a long. Have two more bottles I'll try to age a bit more to review again.

Continuum is the newest project of the Mondavi family, being a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc all coming from the Oakville appellation. Super limited production, this red exhibits a velvet mouth feel, with notes of currents, roasted coffee bean, and baking spices.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2005 Continuum is a dense, beautifully harmonious, rich and aromatic wine with very expressive and generous flavors. It has a warm and enveloping entry, rich middle palate and long finish. Descriptors include rose petal, brown spice, sandalwood and cardamom, lingering with flavors of graphite and licorice on the finish. It shows a suppleness and generosity that makes it approachable now, with a firmness of supple tannins that promise a long and beautiful life.
