    "There is no wine in all of California comparable to Conundrum. It's made from a blend of grapes grown all over the state, and you can almost taste the flavors of each and every varietal: There's lush Chardonnay and Semillon, crisp Sauvignon Blanc, intense Viognier and spicy, aromatic Muscat." ~Food & Wine

    always heard a lot of hype about this white. found it to be very buttery, yes... a bit complex but too heavy on the peach and/ or muscat vibes for my taste. just a little better than avg IMO

    (From 2008 Vintage) Made by Caymus, one of the best wine producers in all the Napa Valley, Conundrum is one of the most interesting wines I've had in a long time. Aromas of flowers, sweet fruit, and spice waft up and lure you into the wine. It starts off fruity with flavors of peaches, apricots, lemon and other citrus fruits, and continues in a seamless line until the finish. The finish is not a fruity as the rest of the wine and has flavors of orange peel and mineral in an off-dry style. No one knows what's in it and that's the conundrum, but who really cares? It tastes great and is perfect for the summer.
