Conundrum is owned by the Wagner family of Caymus Vineyards, but stands on its own as a separate brand. The Conundrum winery in Monterey County is close to the sources for most of the grape varietals that make up the wine. Aromas are rich, velvety and wonderfully appealing floral notes with tones of lavender, dried berries, baking chocolate and bacon bits. Silky round entry with acid to balance the high fruit concentration. The palate is fruit driven both before and after the high tannin middle core. The finish is long, not drying of tannin and beckons a second sip.
