ames is back in Napa Valley to meet with winery owners, winemakers and others in the region and taste the 2019 vintage. Here, he chats with Continuum Estate's owner, Tim Mondavi, and his daughter Carissa.
James tasted Continuum's 2019 bottling with Tim and Carissa, and he called it "another illustration of how 2019 allowed great winemakers to produce precise and curated wines that emphasize their unique provenance and character."
Tim said of the progression from the 2018 to 2019 vintages that there was "improved vibrancy, elegance, refinement in our wines all the way across... Everything has to be at the very highest level. And we care for everything, even the young vines, as if they were princes to be kings [old vines] one day.”
