For dinner tonight I made Dave Pasternack's Recipe for Fettuccine With Shrimp, Cherry Tomatoes and Basil (WSJ, subscription may be required). It's very easy, very delicious, and ideal for a hot night like tonight.
The 2011 Conundrum was a great match for the pasta. I taste Viognier and Muscat, but there's probably also some Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc in the mix as well. It's a little sweet on the palate, suggesting that there's probably a dash of residual sugar in the mix. Rich, creamy, lots of stone fruit flavors and aromas, plus melon and some citrus. There's just enough acidity to make it very food friendly. Plus, its a great bargain at about $20/bottle. Grade: B+
