Continuum Proprietary Estate Red Blend 2016 1.5 litre
Ok....if ratings matter: 100 points by James Suckling, 99 points by Wine Advocate, 94 points by Decanter.
Iconic vintner Tim Mondavi and his family manage to capture the essence of Pritchard Hill. Their estate features the Sage Mountain Vineyard, a now-mature vineyard providing wisdom and tension in the wine. In 2016, mother nature gifted a great vintage with complexity and concentration to the rather low crop. Signature vineyard notes of zesty citrus and fresh red roses hint at the mineral-driven structure. The flavours are dominated by dark fruits, wild brush and tobacco, and the palate finishes with stern tannins. Blend: 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc, 18% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot
Hard to find and considered one of the singular Bordeaux style red blends in the world.
