Conundrum Caymus Red 2011

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine is a lovely rich and deep ruby color in the glass that just exudes a feel of quality California wine. The nose is a wonderful combination of ripe berries, lavender and chocolate, with just a hint of leather, one of the more complex aromas I've experienced in a while. The taste is a burst of ripe fruit and floral notes, with rich blackberries and plum. Midpalate there is a good bit of tannins, mixed with some floral notes and cocoa powder that works so well with velvety texture of this wine. The finish is long, but not overly dry as the fruit makes another appearance at the end, practically daring you to take another sip.
