Vineyard owner John Caldwell and winemaker Philippe Melka are two men who hardly need an introduction. These are two of the hottest names in the wine industry today. John Caldwell's property is known as one of the premier grape-growing sites in California. In fact, the property first gained international attention in the 1990's, when Pahlmeyer Vineyards produced their vineyard-designated Chardonnay and Merlot bottlings from Caldwell. Today, the list of internationally renowned, prestigious clients includes Phelps, Mura, Maris, Neiman, and Viader.
In the late '80's and early '90's, Philippe Melka acquired just some of his experience working for Petrus and Dominus. In 1993, he studied soils at Badia a Coltibuono in Italy. After returning briefly to France, he came back to Napa Valley in 1994. In addition to his current job overseeing the production at Caldwell, Melka also works as a consultant for other outstanding wineries, including Quintessa, Vineyard 29, Seavey, Lail, Hundred Acre and Bryant Family.
Rocket Science is 32% Syrah, 32% Cabernet, 30% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot. This is definitely a true "crowd pleaser"!
