Educated Guess Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
Fresh and focused with ripe-berry and oaky vanilla flavors, this wine maintains the complexity I like in a cabernet, while remaining approachable and fun. The grapes in this wine are 100% organically grown. Proprietor, and 15 year Wine veteran Mark Albrecht produces this wine in Oakville, CA at Napa Wine Company. The label itself is rather unique and shows actual winemaking formulas that are either induced or naturally occur during a specific winemaking process. There are two primary sources for the Educated Guess - Beckstoffer Vineyards in Rutherford, and the Napa Wine Company in Yountville and Oakville, California. Created with the philosophy that superb Napa Valley Cabernet can be affordable, this wine is indistinguishable in quality from its higher-priced Napa Valley competitors.
butter/mocha scent, hints of chocolate/coffee/smoke
Coolest label EVER! OK, i havent tried the wine, but as a former chemist, i love the label.
This wine stopped me in my tracks. I've been looking for it ever since downing the two bottles I bought blind at Whole Foods.
I had this without any sort of food pairing and it was the second bottle of the night with a friend. That withstanding, it was still a nicely complex with subtle hints of tobacco and chocolate. Not to mention how awesome a bottle with molecular diagrams is, much less one with corks containing the same. Totally worth the < $20.
Lush berry, smooth tannins. more of an artisan wine given the blending. worth more than you'll pay. applause to the winemakers !!
Very good wine for the price...Take time for the wine to open up....
