"Educated Guess" 2011 is 100% Napa with 90% of the grapes grown in Rutherford and St. Helena. the blend is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6 % Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. The label is meant to suggest the thought process that goes into making wine and selecting wine.
From the winery Roots Run Deep with some commentary by us.
Why "Educated Guess?" Have you ever found yourself in a wine shop or restaurant persuing the wines and owndering...how do I shoose the best wine for the money? (Two things here: First, shop Metro Wines and our knowledgable staff will give you all the information you need to make an informed decision. But in the case where you are off campus and must "guess," we suggest that you choose a wine from a winery or an importer that you like. Chances are if you like a wine imported by Kermit Lynch, you will probably like other wines in his porfolio and if you like red wines from ZOLO, there is a good chance you will like the white wines.) You may admire a label or regonize a name, or recall a great review...in essence you're making an "Educated Guess." That is exactly what goes in on the vineyards and wineries around the world. When should we pick the grapes? should we barrel age in French Oak? Will our customers like the package? We use our knowledge, intuition and years of experience to make the best decisions; however, at the end of the day, it still remains an "Educated Guess." At Roots Run Deep Winery, we have done the Guesswork for you. (Ditto: At Metro Wines, we have done the Educated Guesswork in stocking our shelves and can be further specific for your particular interests.) This Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is the richest, ripest and most complex Cabernet you can buy for the money. So, don't settle for less, buy the "Educated Guess." (Smartly built, serious, with ripe black fruit and a bit of sweet oak with an easy finish all made to be food friendly, we agree. And that is NOT a guess!)
