Food Pairings for Caymus Conundrum White Blend 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.
