External Reviews for Conundrum California
Descriptions like ‘Wildly aromatic... an intense, delicious wine barely able to contain itself.’ San Francisco Chronicle , and ‘There is no wine in all of California comparable to Conundrum.’ Food & Wine and ‘Voluptuous, layered, remarkably complex, full-bodied, rich, spicy and with dazzling persistence of flavor.’ Whitley On Wine and ‘Rich and lush, full bodied yet silky on the palate.’ Wine Enthusiast Magazine have become the norm for Conundrum, a blend of five white grapes (Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Viognier and Muscat) that defies convention while stimulating both the palate and the imagination. From the owners of Caymus Vineyards and winemaker Jon Bolta, who created Conundrum as a non traditional white wine blend designed to pair with the creative dishes being offered by the new generation of chefs.
Conundrum stands out as a distinctly different, non-traditional white wine blend. It is a true California wine, with five white grape varietals- Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat Canelli, Viognier and Semillon. The wine enters round with a Chardonnay weight then quickly lightens up as the Sauvignon Blanc adds a fresh element. The Viognier adds a spicy character with Muscat Canelli and Semillon adding to the layers of flavors. Explore this puzzling wine as rich aromas of honeysuckle escape from the glass, followed by hints of peach, vanilla and citrus notes. On the palate, lush tropical flavors of melon, pineapple and pear are matched with crisp lemon zest and hints of grapefruit. The complexity of this wine is brought into balance by a rich, round mouthfeel supported by fresh acidity, creating a stunning, satisfying finish.
