From the bottle:
"Conundrum White is California's original, quality white wine blend. The grapes are largely grown along the Pacific coastline where they ripen slowly to produce a complex wine of genuine fruit intensity. Wonderful as an aperitif with cheese, or sure to please any table when paired with surf, turf or grilled veggies. Best serve chilled with friends and family.
The 2012 Conundrum by Caymus White Wine begins with a very pleasant aroma chock full of orange blossom and honeysuckle floral notes, zesty citrus and a bit of tropical fruit. Tasting reveals tons of different flavors and textures that makes this a very fun blend to drink as it gives you something different with every sip. Those varied flavors range from fruity (pear, apple, apricot, line, pineapple and melon) to nutty, oaky notes to a tinge of vanilla and even a hint of minerality. Good acidity helps to make this a fairly food flexible wine. Looking for a tasty, fun and food flexible white for your holiday parties? Problem solved!
