Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Fresh fajitas. Relaxing before dinner. A night out for Thai or Vietnamese. Conundrum White goes with them all. Sourced from California’s premier winegrowing regions, this wine is both exotic and bright, a blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Muscat Canelli and Viognier. It lures you in with scents of apricot, pear and honeysuckle, and if you’re paying attention, orange and lemon meringue pie. Initial sweetness is balanced by natural acidity, and we love the hint of oak that plays with flavors of peach, apple and citrus. The long finish will leave you longing for another glass.

Winemaker's Notes

Gorgeous aromas of apricot, honeysuckle, vanilla, and lime zest enhance a deeply-flavored palate of tropical fruit, peach, pear and honeydew melon. The complexity of this wine is brought into balance with a rich, round, soft texture; fresh, supportive acidity; and a stunning, satisfying finish.

    The copper finish is akin to blood. Way to mineral at room temp.

    (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.
