Sommelier: Conundrum white blend

Is Conundrum a riddle that evades resolution? Or is it a wine that expands the appeal of Rhône-style whites to the American mainstream? The answer is both riddle and wine. And that wine is the acclaimed proprietary blend conceived by eighth-generation vintner Chuck Wagner. This California white combines Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc with three Rhône grapes—Viognier, Semillon, and Muscat—each bringing a special complexity to this unique fusion. And it has a tropical kind of vibe with a wildflower nose and a spicy crisp finish. Quite simply, Conundrum is silky smooth and deliciously good.

Conundrum is served BTG at Louisiana Lagniappe Restaurant, where it pairs perfectly with the Fresh Fish en Papillote. Or grab a bottle for about $20 most anywhere to serve among friends as summer turns its last corner, giving way to the Tigers’ eyes.

Riddle solved.
