Caymus Conundrum

Caymus Conundrum

Details

Caymus has one of the most enviable track records of any California winery. Having followed their Cabernet Sauvignons since the early seventies, I find it remarkable that this winery has never gone through a slump. Not many wineries, anywhere in the world, can match the Wagner family's consistent record of success. Their white wine program includes two of the most delicious wines produced in California. The Conundrum, a barrel-fermented proprietary white wine made from an innovative blend of Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Semillon, has been criticized as a cunningly made wine. Cleverness and intelligence aside, it delivers what most consumers want - delicious ripe fruit, a savory texture, and undeniable pleasure. The 1994 boasts a knock-out nose of coconut, honeyed oranges, apricots, and melons. Full-bodied and crammed with fruit, this soft, gorgeously pure, ripe, heady white wine should be drunk over the next 12-18 months.
