The next Wine Blogging Wednesday has been announced and is coming up on us quickly. The group over at The Wine Cask Blog is hosting this edition. Note that they would like your entries to them by Easter Sunday, to be posted/hosted on their blog by Wednesday, April 11.
If you’re new to WBW, the concept is simple. Just buy a wine that fits the theme and write a review. You don’t even need a blog! If you have a blog, send your link over to the Wine Cask by Sunday, April 8. If you don’t, just email them the whole review. You don’t need to sign up or reserve a spot or anything fancy.
This month The Wine Cask is asking us to grab two wines of the same winery and vintage, one Reserve label (or Estate, Proprietor’s Series, etc) and one regular label, with no fancy title. Compare the two. Is there really a difference in the wines? We usually pay more for the Reserve. Is it worth it?
Again, remember that wine is subjective. If you prefer the regular to the reserve, it doesn’t mean you have bad taste. At the Wine Festival, we tried a Jocelyn Cabernet (regular) and Reserve. I preferred the regular version and Kevin preferred the spiciness of the Reserve. For us, one wine wasn’t better than the other. They just tasted different.
