Ripe and jammy on the nose with a nice base of well judged mocha, vanilla oak and a dusting of clove over soft, slightly minty black currant fruit. This is rather bright on entry with rich ripe prune and blackberry flavors supported by vibrant acidity, almost too vibrant in that it lends a citrus cast to the palate., though it does make this easy to drink. The ripeness eventually breaks through the acid barrier and the wood adds its weight on the backend before this fades on a modest, slightly dry and woody finish. Still it easy to drink and the freshness combined with the powerful fruit makes for an attractive package, though it tastes a bit like black currant jam on toast with cinnamon sugar. 89pts

More red than purple in the glass. Fairly big nose reporting oak and berry. Quite a big blast of berry fruit on introduction to the tongue, but it really does not take over. More earthy things happen as the wine passes over the tongue. Then there is a bit of woodiness at the back of the palate. Tannin and acid from the back of the palate and the tongue suggest more years of aging would be rewarded. US$34.79 at Costco in Chino Hills in 2013.

Profound and intense, this Cabernet casts aromas of dark, concentrated fruit, warm vanilla and star anise around a powerfulmid-palate of vibrant huckleberry, blackberry and currant flavors. Its well-defined structure is accentuated by notes of freshlycut oregano, lemon verbena and bay leaves woven into the firm, seamless tannins. Continuing in the tradition of bold yetgraceful Napa Valley Cabernets, this wine captivates with a lengthy, enduring finish.

Deep, dense and concentrated, the flavors echo intense aromas of blueberry, bramble and cassis intermingled with cocoa, cinnamon and sweet, toasty oak. Bold, yet supple on the palate, the dark, richly-fruity flavors are balanced by a bright acidity an

Our Merlot displays all the attributes that make this variety so popular: bright aromas and flavors of smooth cherry, plum and strawberry with hints of cedar, black olive and spice-supported by a supple texture with fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. These qualities come from choice Central Coast Merlot grapes, with 9% Syrah for enhanced color and richness. The Central Coast American Viticultural Area (AVA), especially Monterey County, provides the temperate climate, cool breezes and moist alluvial soils in which Merlot thrives, developing ripe, fruity flavors while retaining good balancing acidity. We enhance the wine's pure fruit flavors with just a hint of oak for roundness and complexity.

Our Cabernet Sauvignon comes from cool-climate Central Coast grapes and has been blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and small amounts of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Teroldego, and Petite Sirah. The wine has the sweet floral red fruit character that distinguishes California's finest Cabernet Sauvignons, and its smoky oak and burgundy barrel roundness invigorates the palate while providing a lasting finish. Enjoy with a variety of dishes, from standing rib roasts, grilled steak, and roast duck to spare ribs, lasagna, and flavorful hard cheeses. - WineryVARIETAL COMPOSITION83% Cabernet Sauvignon,4% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot,3% Syrah, 2% Petit Verdot,2% Teroldego, 2% Petite SirahAPPELLATION54% Monterey County, 30% Paso Robles, 10% San Benito County, 4% North Coast, 2% Valley SouthOAK AGING: 12 monthsTA: 6.4g/LpH: 3.57ALCOHOL: 13.5%

Deliciously true to the variety, it weaves together a rich and complex array of concentrated black and red berries, dusty earth and a hint of fresh herbs, rounded by a sweet underpinning of mocha-tinged toasty oak. It fleshes out steadily in the glass, and lingers, revealing even more layers of lush, ripe cherry and plummy fruit supported by firm, fine grained tannins and a refreshing acidity. - Winery

Lots of elegance in this Cabernet. It s dry full bodied and rich in tannins with a good depth of black currants and sweet toasty oak. Won t age but who cares: Pop the cork and drink it now. -S.H. Wine Enthusiast.

Bright red-ruby. Reticent nose offers cassis, spices and chocolatey oak, plus a touch of minerality. A juicy, spicy midweight with good intensity and spicy/herbal lift to its cool cassis and blackberry flavors. Finishes with substantial fine tannins and very good length. Plenty of definition and energy here: this is excellent for a wine made in large volume.

Winemaker's Notes:

"This has been an impressive, serious wine since the debut vintage, and Tim Mondavi's estate high on Pritchard Hill has fashioned a 2010 blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 11% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot. Gorgeously ripe, intricate and nuanced, with aromas of spring flowers and red and black fruits, a stunning texture, sweet tannin, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and undeniable elegance and finesse, this complex beauty cascades over the palate without a hard edge to be found. It is a tribute to Mondavi-s long resume of skillful winemaking. Black currants, blueberries and a touch of raspberries are all compelling and persistent. Drink this gorgeous Napa red now and over the next 15+ years...97" WA 10/13 "Graphite, crushed rocks, wild flowers, pencil shavings, licorice and menthol all take shape in the 2010 Continuum. Here, it is the wine's tension and energy that are front and center. The 2010 isn't a huge Continuum, but it is among the most refined, polished wines that have emerged from this hillside estate on Pritchard Hill. The clean, mineral-infused finish leaves a lasting impression. Readers should be prepared to age the 2010 for at least a handful of years...96" Antonio Galloni 11/13
