Winemaker's Notes

Number 19 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

The "puzzle" of Conundrum—we never reveal its exact composition—comes in part from the range of grape varieties we use, in part from where and how the grapes are grown, and in part from the way we treat each vineyard lot in winemaking before making the final blend.

To me, this vintage shows an exceptional integration of these layers, with aromas of peach/apricot and honeysuckle; flavors of apricot, green melon and pear backed by notes of tropical fruit and spicy vanilla; a lush, creamy texture; and a crisp, balancing finish with lingering notes of citrus.

Our decision to bottle Conundrum with a twist-top has had a very positive response. As winemaker and someone who insists on wines without faults, I believe this closure is the right tool to protect the aromas and flavors that developed in the vineyards, were preserved in the winery and bottled – an artistic creation.
- Jon Bolta, Winemaker

Love it, can't say enough. The price prevents me from always having a bottle open but I've recently discovered that I can get it in half-bottles locally, meaning a glass is never out reach (literally or financially!). It is crisp with a nice sweetness but not too much. I've enjoyed it with spicy thai food, warm italian, as an apertif, and just alone. Not only would I buy it again, I've bought it several times and recommend it to friends who buy it several times.

The floral taste overwhelmed everything else in the bottle that I had. I felt as though I were sipping perfume (and it wasn't pleasant).

People who think they don't like whites should give this a try. It is very subtle! Also fruity but not too sweet.
