Spectacular Price On One Of America’s Favorite Summer Whites

(Will Sell Out. While Supplies Last)

Today’s offer comes from one of Napa’s most notable winemaking families, the Wagner family. To be more specific, the wine is the result of Jon Bolta and Charlie Wagner, owner and winemaker for labels like Mer Soleil and Silver.

Charlie Wagner grew up in Rutherford – and he is named after his grandfather, Charles F. Wagner, co-founder of Caymus Vineyards. Following in his grandfather’s footsteps, Charlie spent most of his spring and summer breaks working in the vineyards or the cellar at Caymus. When he was 16 years old, he began his winemaking career while working on the bottling line of Caymus Vineyards. In 1988, after Chuck Wagner (Charlie’s dad) saw his son’s passion for white wines; he decided to have Jon Bolta as his son’s mentor.

Jon Bolta acquired his winemaking skills by learning on the job. He joined Caymus Vineyards in 1983, starting in the bottling line, and moving up through the ranks to the cellar and the vineyards. By 1988, he was already responsible for producing all the white wines from the house. At that same time, Charlie Wagner Sr. appointed Bolta to be the creator of a new nontraditional white wine blend that would first be released for the 1989 vintage. The name of this wine; Conundrum (which refers to a confusing or difficult problem).

The idea behind the wine was to make a full-flavored fruit wine, but that also had complexity and balance. A wine that could de drunk either as an aperitif or be served with the local fare. Blending wines was almost unthinkable when Conundrum White was born more than 25 years ago but since then, this wine has attracted a loyal following. This is because the wine keeps reinventing itself. While the exact blend differs vintage after vintage, the five grapes including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Muscat, and Viognier make up for a wine that is amazingly versatile, with intriguing tropical notes and natural acidity.

Today’s wine, the 2015 Conundrum White is the versatile white wine. The wine can be enjoyed while relaxing at the beach or having Thai or Vietnamese food for dinner. Sourced from the family’s estate vineyard in Mendocino, Napa and Sonoma counties. The wine is both exotic and bright, with luring scents of apricot, pear and honeysuckle, even orange and lemon pie. Initial sweetness is balanced by natural acidity, and a slight hint of oak that plays with flavors of peach, apple and citrus.

Aromas of green apple, tangerine zest and honeysuckle. Core flavors of apricot, melon, pear and light vanilla are beautifully balanced by the sparkling acidity of citrus fruits. The lush, creamy, mouth-filling texture is heightened by powerful floral and bright tropical fruit notes and leads to a full, powerful finish.
