This is my all-time favorite white wine, but just logging taste notes on it now. Had it tonight with an array of Chinese dishes - spicy, savory, sweet. I love this wine because it is so versatile and is my 'go-to' wine when I have a 'conundrum' (pardon the pun) on what wine will go with a meal, esp typical Asian gatherings where you have no idea what will be brought to the table. It has just the nice amount of fruity sweetness that is not syrupy sweet nor candy-like. Rather, it abounds with tropical flavors like pineapple, mango, papaya. I also get some melon, green apple, vanilla. It turns into a nice level of acidity mid-palate and at the finish. Like a nice pair of black pants, you can either dress her up or dress her down.

Served at the proper white wine temperature, Conundrum has a very pleasant floral nose with hints of melon, as well. The taste starts out bright, with flavors of mango, passion fruit, ripe pear, and perhaps a little orange, as well. The finish is acidic, without being tart, and lingers for a very long time. This wine, however, suffers significantly if it is not served at a good temperature. Too cold, and it loses all of its softness, becoming an overly tart and acidic wine. Too warm, and it loses its citrus pleasantness and it becomes very alcohol-tasting. Normally, this wouldn't be too big of an issue, except if one was drinking this wine by the pool on a warm, sunny day; the kind of drinking experience a wine like this begs for. Overall, this wine is a very good, fairly versatile light food wine that is let down slightly by its inability to be consumed slowly in a glass.

Liked it, but really wasn't blown away the way some people talk about this wine, I think it's faddish, not as good as some Chard's along the same price. It's a little flabby for my taste.

Very sweet flowers on the nose. Fruit, vanilla, and a touch of something like wood on the palate. Smooth drinking, and quite tasty. I am not a big fan of sweet whites (or any whites for that matter) but this wine is VERY nice. Enjoyed with spicy chicken entree, and it was the perfect compliment. A bit pricey, but still quite nice.

Great wine! Such an interesting take on the off-dry white wine selection. Fantastic blend of grapes displaying great citrus and slightly sweet... Perfect for someone trying to grow away for the Rieslings while also supporting even the most developed palates. Very fun wine.

Complex flavors, straw color, initial impression was of Viognier, with strong fruit overtones. Not a sipping wine as it pairs best with food, particularly with spicy dishes where it holds its own well. Would have liked the blend biased slightly more to chardonnay side.

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.

2006 Caymus Conundrum promises to be just as exciting and flavorful as the wines of previous years. To create the layered flavors that go into the Conundrum blend, we brought in Sauvignon Blanc grapes from the Napa Valley, Muscat Canelli from Tulare

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Conundrum White Table Wine 2006 : WINEMAKER NOTES: The "puzzle" of Conundrum lies partly in guessing the range of grape varieties used, because its exact composition is never revealed. Conundrum 2006 exhibits soft tropical notes of guava and cherimoya, also peach and honeysuckle. The rich perfume is supported by concentrated and focused layers of peach and apricot nectar, pear and green melon with spicy vanilla notes. The creamy texture and balanced acidity carries through the palate for a long finish.CONUNDRUM WHITE TABLE WINE 2006
