Exotic fruit aromatics and a bit of sweetness lead to a thin, ponderous finish. Approximately 8 billion better wines at this price.

In 1989 Conundrum was born, started by Charlie Wagner's grandfather mixing wines & ended up with this unique, different and interesting white-wine blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Viognier, Semillon & Muscat Canelli. Straw yellow with complex aromas from citrus to sweet. Palate showed tastes of sweet tropical fruit, ripe peaches, apricots and melons, with a touch of unusual spices, with an edge, very original. The finish is about medium and paired well with food. Nice! Consistent with last 3 vintages.

Medium to deep golden yellow. Thick nose with honeycomb and a touch of stone fruits. Low acidity (4.5/10) with a medium body. Rich a touch sweet on the palate with notes of citrus and tropical fruits. A bit sour and tart in the medium length finish. Very drinkable and doing insanely well for being 15 years old. Drink now.

OK. Not great but smooth and serviceable.

Full bodied and very fruity. A blend so not like a chard. Long astringent finish maybe from the viognier. Not oaky. Silky mouthfeel. Love it or hate it kind of wine.
