Caymus Conundrum White:

It would take all the fun out of it if we told you exactly what was in the blend, but there are definitely components used in Conundrum year after year that define our signature profile. Aside from a dash of creativity and a lot of dedication, we consistently include Chardonnay for its weight and complexity, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon for crisp acidity, Muscat Canelli for floral qualities and Viognier for unctuousness. Our winemaker Jon Bolta takes great care in keeping each parcel of fruit separate throughout the entire winemaking process, preserving individual characteristics of each parcel. Some lots are aged in cool stainless steel tanks, to maintain fresh crisp aromas and fruit flavors, and some in a combination of seasoned and new French oak barrels for up to ten months. The end result is a multi-layered, yet well-balanced wine, with subtlety and complexity.

From the second you pour the first glass, you are invited in with intriguing aromas of green apple, tangerine and honeysuckle blossoms. The taste is best described as exotic; with layers of peach, apricot nectar, green melon and pear, overlaid with subtle notes of citrus zest and spicy vanilla. A rich, round mouthfeel, supported by fresh acidity, brings the complexity of this wine in to balance.

Ratings / Reviews:

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Distinctive and extremely aromatic, with complex notes of honeysuckle, dried apricot, rose petal and honeycomb. Soft and round, offering yellow apple, peach and dried pineapple flavors that are ripe and appealing. Juicy finish. Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Muscat Canelli. Drink now. 136,650 cases made." - MW (Dec 15, 2013)

Caymus Conundrum Red:

Conundrum Red Blend has a nose that is almost floral, with tones of lavender, dried berries, baking chocolate, bacon bits. Aromas are rich, velvety and wonderfully appealing. Silky round entry with acid to balance and high fruit concentration. The nose leaves no doubt about the seriousness of this wine. The palate is fruit driven both before and after the high tannin middle core. The finish is long, not drying of tannin, and beckons a second sip.
