As one of the pioneering families of Napa Valley and some of the most experimental winegrowers in California, the Trefethens are generally an open-minded bunch. But when the winemaker presented John and Janet with an unlikely blend of Viognier, Chardonnay, and Riesling, they thought he had finally had a little too much to drink. Until they tasted it, of course. Beautifully fragrant and refreshing, this 2009 vintage of Quandary was produced in a limited quantity.

2009 was an excellent, even-keeled vintage in Napa Valley. Consistently mild weather throughout the growing and harvest seasons resulted in stress-free vines, long grape hang times, and fruit with finely developed flavors at lower-than-normal sugar levels.The Wine

Fresh, inviting and oh, so easy-drinking, this rich, viscous white is clearly the sum of its delicious parts: lovely floral and crisp citrus notes from the Riesling; succulent apple and pear fruit from the Chardonnay; and luscious tropical tones from the Viognier.
