Educated Guess Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is Roots Run Deepâ€™s first release and our flagship wine. The name â€œEducated Guessâ€ came about during a lively, second bottle of wine conversation about winemaking styles, vineyard sites, and the progressive escalation of wine prices without comparable increases in quality. The discussion then proceeded to the â€œart vs. scienceâ€ aspect of winemaking and after a few more glasses of wineâ€¦â€œEducated Guessâ€ was born!!!
So ask yourself this question: Have you ever found yourself in a wine shop or restaurant perusing the wines and wonderingâ€¦how do I choose the best wine for the money? You may admire a label, recognize a name, or recall a great reviewâ€¦in essence youâ€™re making an â€œEducated Guess.â€ This is exactly what goes on in the vineyards and wineries around the world. Should we pick the grapes now or wait? How long should we barrel age our wine? Should we use French or American Oak, or both?
Oh, and everyone wants to know about our unique label. Our label was designed to tell the story of how you can make an educated guess in winemaking, not to give you nightmares about your high school chemistry class. It shows you actual winemaking formulas that are either induced or naturally occur during a specific winemaking process.
