Mystery vine

Here's an interesting plant from the Los Angeles Arboretum. It was wrapped around a post, as though it was being trained as a vine. But there was no name tag, so who knows? Whatever it is, it's happy here in Zone 10. Anyone recognize it or want to take a wild guess? I guessed kiwi vine. But since it doesn't look like any other kiwi vine online, it's someone else's turn.
