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 Read more »

  • Painful to watch Brian! Hopefully some better wines are coming your way...well, ... neutral, though this is an educated guess as I know the price of the wine can't afford much new oak. Nice, mild to medium finish, with some decent tannic grip and persistence. Alcohol well hidden.&nbs Read More

  • Well the Germans/Austrians/German Swiss that gave practical examples of its use to me also taught me to spell it 'prosit'. If you look you'll see both are in use, with the word coming from the latin 'prosit'. My guess is the pronunciation has evolved towards a truncation of the 'i' so the spelling without it also came into play. Educated version... Read More

  • Grass is the way to go. I bought my house in Brooklyn precisely because it was only a few blocks from the park. Then I'd go there and see people running on cement. WTF? And worse, it became fashionable for a while to run barefoot. That's supposed to be more "natural" for the human foot. I guess the foot evolved to walk for miles across the natur... Read More

  • I am simply suprised! I am very impressed with how well this wine pairs with a fairly wide variety of foods. The percentages of grape type and blending is very smooth. This wine is also very stable. wheather aired or directly poured it remained smooth. Opened and decanted was my best experience. Bravo!!
