Educated Guess Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Wow, what can we say about our Cabernet Sauvignon? It's rich, ripe and focused with juicy black cherry and cassis fruit, currants and hints of mint all tied together with a creamy french vanilla middle and a finish that in a word is . . . lingering. Educated Guess fills all the requirements that a serious cabernet lover is looking for, while remaining fun, approachable, and food friendly! 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

  Educated Guess is a value-priced wine brand created by the Roots Run Deep Winery in Napa Valley, California. The name signifies the various conclusions to be made regarding wine on all fronts. From the winemaking side, decisions must be made about where to grow, what to grow, how to grow it, aging techniques, pricing, packaging, etc. They also considered decisions made by consumers in wine stores and how their personal knowledge plays into that, such as selecting the right wine to match specific foods, knowing which wine presents the most value for the money, knowing a particular grape, region, brand or producer from experience, or even just connecting with a label design. But if you’re unsure what to do in a particular situation, sometimes you just have to go with environmental clues and make an educated guess.    It doesn’t hurt that the label designed for Educated Guess is deliberately eye-catching and clever. It depicts the actual chemical formulas for aspects of winemaking.  Read less

Very good Cabernet for the money. Grapey taste with a jammy mouth-feel. Hints of blackberry and currant, yet dry and balanced acidity with a background of tannins to round out the flavor. I would purchase a cab from them again.

Bring it on! This is such a fine tasting juice... I enjoyed the vanilla on the end.

I was not a fan. I felt it was overripe. It had unpleasant pruney, raisin flavors. Also, it had a decent amount of tanins but lacked acidity and boldness. It fell flat for me. Borey snorey and I spent about $17 on it. I expected more.

I thought that I should have decanted it for longer - the last glass which was drank about 2.5 hours after opening was far different/better than the first.
