What is that wonderfully robust, floral and bright tropical taste? Is it green apple, tangerine or honeysuckle? Could it possibly be apricot, melon, pear or light vanilla? That’s the Conundrum. Our proprietarily blend of California white grapes create a lush, creamy texture that leads to the mouth-watering question, “Mmmm, what’s in there?” We’re not telling. Can you guess?

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.
Round and ripe, with a panoply of melon, orange rind, pear and floral tones. Tangy citrus notes and a hint of vanilla shape the intense finish. Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Muscat Canelli, Viognier and Sémillon. Drink now.
