Named after Joy's father who worked as Rocket Scientist for NASA, Rocket Science by Caldwell is a flagship Proprietary Red blend representing the best of the vintage from Caldwell Vineyard. The 2009 Rocket presents itself with a layered nose highlighted by raspberry, plum, boysenberry, vanilla, cloves, mint and a hint of dill. A black cherry attack leads to a full mouth of juicy red raspberries, red plum, licorice, and chocolate. The wine finishes clean with a lingering ripe bing cherry.
