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.

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.

  • Okay, so are tannins sour or bitter?  I was in a pub at Sloan Square in London in '78 where I was served a "bitter" beer, and let me tell you, bitter was the right word for it!  I didn't want to insult anyone so I took it with me into the latrine and poured it down the drain.  I'm quite certain the bitter taste in a wine is not anywhere as sever...

Full body, firm and ultra-silky tannins. Black currant, mineral and floral character. It starts slowly and seems almost endless on the palate. Seamless. I want t... Read More

  • The Educated Guess didn't last long since we opened it up for a small glass at lunch and then a cup was used in the stew that Sandra made during the afternoon while I finished up my Cat Tuesday activities.  Therefore I was forced to open another wine, this time a 2010 Paradise Ridge Rhone-style blend that was quite good with the stew.  I lucked ...

  • Roots Run Deep Educated Guess Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Opens with Plum, Cedar, Oak, and Vanilla; then on to Plum and Bing Cherry; finishes with a bit of Slate, Vanilla, Mint, and Concord Grape. A big, full mouthful with a long long finish of stewed fruit, Blackberry, Licorice, and Milk Chocolate. Cannot remember when or where I picked this bottle up, but wish I had more. Read More

    Wine review by Paul Orszulak


  • 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!!
