Caldwell 2014 "Rocket Science" Red Napa Valley 


Caldwell 2014 "Rocket Science" Red Napa Valley 


This is real wine - real Rocket Science. It is a blend of 67% Syrah, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Pinot Noir, 4% Merlot, 3% Tannat, 1% Carménère sourced from John Caldwell's estate vineyard at 1200 feet elevation in the Coombsville area of Southern Napa Valley. A delicious, full bodied, mouth filling and layered that’s got great fruit and structure without being overly intense or extracted. Laden with flavors of plum, cranberry, currant, coffee and chocolate with a few little hits of black pepper, cinnamon and earthy goodness. The gorgeous dusty tannins and pretty acid make this a serious wine by any yardstick. This full bodied wine will pair very well with the likes of a rib-eye, rack of lamb or hardy dish. Limited production!

Winemaker Notes: "The inviting bouquet is highlighted by vibrant red raspberry, black cherry, violets, chocolate, leather and tobacco. A bing cherry attack leads to a juicy mouth of blueberry, red currant, elderberry, and black tea. Silky, well-integrated tannins lead to a long strawberry, rhubarb finish."
