The Caymus Conundrum California White Blend has gained a loyal following; appealing to wine critics and consumers alike. Still today, it is unlike any other white wine blend. True to its original intention, Conundrum is an exciting blend of different varieties from several viticultural areas of California (the exact blend is not revealed)This is a California Wine.
Conundrum has been on my radar to try for a year or so. Usually "white blends" aren't my style, as many seem unbalanced and lack the acidity I like. I finally bought a half-bottle to taste. It had a pretty golden color in the glass. I initially got some floral and spicy notes on the nose, it reminded me of a gewurtz, which is not typically a varietal I enjoy. The mouthfeel was a little viscous, tasted similar to the nose, some white flower and spice-again, reminding me of a lot of gewurtz. I couldn't find the breakdown of the varietals in this, but would be interested in finding out. ALthough it taste well-made and balanced with a smooth finish, it's still not my style and I wouldn't seek it out again. Plus the price seems a tad high for a blend.
