Intensely colored and fragrant, the wine opens up with evocative aromas of blackberry, raspberry, rhubarb and cola. On the palate, the wine is full bodied and exuberantly fruity, pairing black cherry, plum and pomegranate notes with more soulful cinnamon, lavender and cocoa nuances. The tannins are firm yet supple, and the finish is long with enticing notes of brown spice, bramble fruits, vanilla and toasty oak.

|Mmmmmm. Conundrum Red...What’s In There?
It’s proprietary and we believe the fun is exploring this intriguing wine. Conundrum Red is a non-traditional blend of California red grapes. This wine is truly a Conundrum in style which is unlike any other red blended wine.
|Ceago Vinegarden is owned by Jim Fetzer, former President of Fetzer Vineyards. Jim grew up with his ten brothers and sisters in the vineyards of Mendocino County. The Fetzer family built their business into an internationally-recognized and respected winery. In 1968, the family started producing just a few dozen cases. When the family sold the winery in 1992, Fetzer Vineyard was producing two and a half million cases of wine annually and was growing 1,200 acres of wine grapes certified organic. The Fetzer family led the U.S. wine industry in organic farming and ecological business practices. In 1993, Jim Fetzer established Ceago Vinegarden. Currently, two of Jimís children, Katrina and Barney, are on board and bringing all their talents and knowledge into the family business.
