90 Points Wine Spectator
Fresh fajitas. Relaxing before dinner. A night out for Thai or Vietnamese. Conundrum White goes with them all. Sourced from California’s premier winegrowing regions, this wine is both exotic and bright, a blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Muscat Canelli and Viognier. It lures you in with scents of apricot, pear and honeysuckle, and if you’re paying attention, orange and lemon meringue pie. Initial sweetness is balanced by natural acidity, and we love the hint of oak that plays with flavors of peach, apple and citrus. The long finish will leave you longing for another glass.
Light in color -- calling to mind shades of straw or sun-kissed blond hair -- this wine opens with the evocative scents of apricot, pineapple, honeysuckle, and coconut. A slight flintiness of wet stone adds a layer of interest, due to a small portion of the wine being fermented in concrete tanks. Entry on the palate is creamy and soft, with lush flavors of Asian pear, Hawaiian fruit, apricot and brown spice. The finish brings just a wisp of acid to balance the richness of the fruit, with the distinct characteristics of each varietal in this blend creating a lasting harmonious impression.

Not a 90
I purchased the Conundrum White as it has a blend of grapes I realy like and I am a fan of Conundrum wines. The rub on this wine is its' sweetness! Therefore I give it a three star rating as it does not lie up to a higher rating.
Great quality and flavor, a must buy
