  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

The wine opened nicely from an aromatic standpoint. Very light for a Cabernet. Slightly tannic on the finish....which changed after some time being opened. A decent wine but it lacked structure and character. Not bad at all....but I wouldn't run back for a bottle anytime soon. Cheers!

Needed to breathe in my glass for 10-15 minutes, but wow. Plums and almost a taste of cranberry. Excellent wine.

Bouquet is a good mix of strawberry, current and blackberry with a hint of pepper.On the palate, this was a tale of two wines. I started on this before dinner and finished it after dinner. Both times, there was a predominate edge of green apple like acidity which overpowered all other features. With barbecued baby back ribs, this was a totally different wine with lots of depth, good fruitiness and a very healthy peppery/spicy finish. Medium bodied, with a moderate finish.

The Educated Guess Cabernet always over performs at its price-point, and the 2011 vintage continues the trend. Ripe, juicy red and blue fruits, fine tannins and a lingering finish. A real crowd pleaser!

A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2010 Educated Guess Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

This is intense and firm, with a wild edge to the berry, herb, sage and cedar notes, but it works. Full-bodied, at times elegant, balanced and complex. Drink now through 2015.
