This delicious white wine pumps out lots of flavor, with pear, spice, vanilla, apple and peach all rolling together in the same direction. Elegant, impeccably balanced and long and lingering on the finish, where it turns to honey and sweet oak. Drink now through 1994.Add winemaker's notes
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?

This delicious white wine pumps out lots of flavor, with pear, spice, vanilla, apple and peach all rolling together in the same direction. Elegant, impeccably balanced and long and lingering on the finish, where it turns to honey and sweet oak. Drink now through 1994.
Smooth, ripe and creamy, this tasty blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Sèmillon, Viognier and Muscat delivers a harmonious medley of fruit flavors, with lingering notes of spicy pear, peach and nectarine, also fig, apricot and melon chiming in. Drink now.
This white blend is a must-try for fans of full-bodied Chardonnay who are looking for something a little different. Flavors of ripe fruit and nuts abound here in an extraordinarily rich texture. It's just one more example of great winemaking from Caymus.
Wonderful complexity and range of flavors, with ripe pear, fig, nectarine, tangerine, vanilla and anise notes, turning smooth and revealing layers of depth. Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Sèmillon and others. Drink now through 2005.
Rich and lush, full bodied yet silky on the palate. This unusual blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Viognier and Muscat grapes lives up to its name. Nonetheless, it's well integrated, with peach, pear, apple, toast and spice flavors.
This is an exotic white blend originally created by the famed Caymus Vineyards. It starts off with enticing floral aromas of honeysuckle and roses, then an explosion of flavors abounds... ripe white peaches, lychee, pear and almonds. The balance of acidity and creaminess is exquisite along with a subtle spiciness. It evolves in the glass and delights the palate with each mouthwatering sip. I would savor this wine with spicy Shrimp Pad Thai.
The grapes that comprise it are a secret, but it doesn't really matter, because every year this proprietary white blend flies off the shelves. Amazing depth and complexity; the dense apricot and honeysuckle notes are coupled with vanilla and hints of baking spices. A truly intriguing wine, perfect for pairing with rich chicken dishes, fish in cream sauce or vegetable-based soups.
