Caldwell Vineyard-Rocket Science-Proprietary Red-Napa Valley-California-2007-14.9% Alcohol-$34.98-A nose of dark fruit, dark amber in color.   A full bodied Bordeaux blend, blackberry, black cherries, spice and some vanilla, not as perfect as the 2006 but very good with one of the coolest bottles in the industry.   I was lucky to spend some time with John Caldwell in November at a tasting in his Cave, a fun place to visit.           NR           CR-91           Good with steak, chicken, pasta

Robert Keenan Winery-Merlot-Spring Mountain-Napa Valley-California-2008-14.3% Alcohol-$27.49-A nose of some dark fruit and spice, dark garnet in color.   A medium to full bodied dry Merlot, with black cherry, blueberry, some licorice and spices on finish, was better than last time tired.           RP-88           WE-91           CR-89           Good with meats, chicken, pasta.
