Conundrum White Blend 2014
"Its production began with my grandfather mixing wines at his lunch table, eventually landing on this unique blend. After 25 years Conundrum remains true to his original rule-bending style. Produced in barrel from California's foremost grape varieties, our eclectic white is serious and exotic--a reminder to grab moments of adventure and keep exploring."
Charlie Wagner, Winemaker
It all began at the dinner table. Charlie Wagner Sr. – who co-founded Caymus Vineyards in 1972 with wife Lorna and son Chuck – would mix wines to find the perfect glass to pair with his meal. No one blended wines back then, so his experiment was pretty radical. Fast forward to 1989, when Conundrum White was born, quickly taking off with its mysterious, tropical notes and amazing versatility.
Today it’s Charlie Sr.’s grandson and namesake, Charlie Wagner, who keeps Conundrum as inventive as ever. He launched Conundrum Red, a wine that is both lighthearted and serious. Charlie loves how there are no single-varietal rules when it comes to making these wines, and each has a unique style. They also showcase some of the best wine regions California has to offer, from Napa Valley to Santa Barbara County and many places in between.
