Caldwell Vineyard-Rocket Science-Proprietary Red Wine-Napa Valley-California-2005-$40.00-A ripe full nose of currants and spice, dark, almost black in color.  Cherry, plum, currants, rich and smooth, good integrated tannins and nice length. This blend is one of my favorites and sadly it was my last bottle.  John Caldwell makes great wine from his Napa vineyard.  Interesting bottle and cork, starting in 2006 this bottle is now tapered like a rocket ship.            WS-89          CR-4.5-5        Good with steak, chicken, pasta.

Kaboom Wines-Ka Boom-Ultra Premium-Zinfandel-Sonoma County-California-2007-$14.99-A big nose of spice and dark fruit, dark amber in color.  A full bodied, heavy mouth feel, black cherry, plum and spice, toasty oak, a little chunky on finish.    Not as smooth as some Zins but gives allot at this price point, cool label.               NR             CR-3.5           Good with chicken, pasta, meats.
