|Taste||Black Cherry, Chocolate|
Sourced from premier California winegrowing regions, Conundrum Red features dark red varietals including Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. With a deep, inky hue almost as dark as blackberries, this wine opens on the nose with scents of chocolatey coffee, sweet oak, fresh plums, floral blossoms and the earthiness of a forest floor. The palate starts off soft, then turns grippy – it peaks with a combination of fruit and textural tannins, before being dominated by the character of ripe berries and plums. As the finish tapers off with the taste of blackberries, spicy notes add complexity to every sip. An evocative quality of brown spice combines with a serious red wine texture to leave a strong yet nuanced final impression, one that entices rather than reveals the mystery."
