    Winemaker Notes

    The grapes we used to make this proprietary blend-Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Chardonnay, Viognier and Muscat Canelli-came from the vineyard locations that our experience has shown us are best suited for each varietal in California's Napa, Marin, Monterey, Santa Barbara and Tulare counties.

    The Muscat Canelli, which thrives in a warmer climate, contributes concentrated tropical, orange flower and spice aromas and flavors, while the Viognier and Sémillon add other floral notes-suggesting verbena and honeysuckle. The Chardonnay brings a lush, round mouthfeel and apple/pear and creamy butter flavors, and the Sauvignon Blanc adds body as well as notes of ripe green melon and sweet citrus.

    We believe the aromas and flavors of this wine are best enjoyed when it is chilled slightly.

    It was the summer of 1989, a year ripe with possibilities and promise. All around the globe, old ways of thinking were giving way to new ideas. In the culinary world, traditional dishes were being reinvented by a generation of chefs who were open to the possibility of exploring adventurous new cuisine. At Caymus, we were similarly inspired to break free of the norm and began to redefine white wine. And in 1989, Conundrum was born.

    From our very first vintage we were determined to make a dramatically different white-wine blend that would surpass the scope of single-varietal wines. Just as chefs were exploring the fusion of flavors from classic to contemporary, from east to west, often combining savory, spicy, herbal and fruity flavors in one dish, we explored how non-traditional combinations of grape varietals would work together. We wanted each varietal to be distinctive but still complementary to blend as a whole. After experimenting with eleven different white wines, we chose a select few that we consider the 'key ingredients'. For over twenty years we have continued to perfect the fine art of blending a 'conundrum' of varietals together, to create a remarkably complex, yet harmonious symphony of flavors. More recently we adapted the same approach for the Conundrum Red blend creation when we released the first vintage in 2011.

    To make each wine even more complex, we take great care in keeping each parcel of fruit separate throughout the entire winemaking process. As a result, when the time comes to blend the wine, we have a lot of diversity in aromas, flavors and textures to work with. That's when the creative juices begin to flow. The proportions of each varietal vary slightly each vintage, as Mother Nature hands us new "ingredients." But our goal is always the same: a highly styled, complex and delicious wine that is excellent as an apéritif and pairs beautifully with the wide-ranging, global dishes we are eating as chefs and home cooks experiment with new, cutting-edge cuisine.
