What can we say about our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon? It's sumptuous, lush, and full-bodied with flavors of juicy blackberry and cherry fruit, creamy milk chocolate, and dusty notes all tied together with a toasty oak finish that in a word is...lingering. Educated Guess fills all the requirements that a serious cabernet lover is looking for while remaining fun, approachable, and food-friendly!

What you see is what you get in this warm, lush-feeling red, defined by a caressing wave of cassis and plum sauce flavors, backed by milk chocolate and melted licorice notes on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 75,487 cases made.

Extremely spicy and smoky, this heavily oaked wine covers good black-cherry nuances with lots of wood-char, black-pepper and beef-juice flavors.

A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Educated Guess has a ripe, sexy bouquet of vanilla-tinged blue fruits, violets, and white chocolate. It's medium-bodied, fruit-forward, and has some creaminess as well as a grippy finish. A value-priced Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon geared for near-term drinking, it's a party wine yet enjoyable.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Educated Guess is a pleasant, easygoing wine to drink now and over the next few years, while the fruit remains vibrant. Sweet dried red cherry, tobacco, mint and cedar add character.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Educated Guess is made up of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, it gives up baked berries, herbs, cedar and pencil lead on the nose with a medium to full-bodied palate, softly textured with lively and juicy acidity, finishing uncomplicated.
