I just experienced this wine at a restaurant and I was amazed how much flavor was packed in this wine. I am use to dry SBs, but this had the perfect balance, very little sweetness with an explosion of flavor, a floral bouquet if you may.
You can really taste the blend of SB and Chardonnay and how it brings the best of both worlds together. For the price (low-mid 20s) it almost can't be beat. Conundrum is almost always a winner and this vintage is no different.

My first taste since the 1990 vintage
Dining with friends at the Delano on Collins Ave, I was asked to select a wine. We needed a white.
This was the first time I had seen Conundrum on a menu since 1990. It was served with salmon at "Cellar In The Sky", New York city. On this wine carte the 2004 vintage was offered at $60. Not bad especially in this setting. The cap was un-screwed-surprise! The wine was delicious! Everything I thought I remembered about it and more. My friends loved it and complimented me on a selection they never would have made. Thank you Caymus.
Fruity but not too sweet. More complex than the average SB with a moderately-long finish.

You'll never go wrong with this one; proof that blends outshine single varietals
While it is no longer made at Caymus, Conundrum has created quite a cult following in the yuppie crowd. And with good reason as it is very tasty.
It is a delicious blend (like most Caymus wines), and always reliable.
A wonderful discovery
Don't let the screw off top fool you. This is a wonderful medium bodied wine that goes great w/ seafood, poultry or simply all by itself.
I discovered this wine while on business in Michigan. It was recommended by the waiter as a nice pairing w/ the salmon I ordered for dinner.
Much more rich flavor that most whites, but not as fruity. A much better choice over Chardonnay.
It is remarkable that an industry essentially less than a half-century old could capture the attention of the American wine-buying public to the degree that California has. Powerful consumer interest in California wine is driven by two major factors. The more obvious reason is that California's best wines, which come from grapes grown in...

For all of its name recognition and reputation for high-quality plantings and bottlings, Sauvignon Blanc has never been represented in lists or discussions of the spectacular wines of the world. But just because wines made from Sauvignon Blanc are rarely crafted for extended cellaring and don't command staggering sums in international auctions doesn't mean that...
