Brian Demay’s Wine Wednesday: Josh Cellars Cabernet Reserve

There are so many factors that go into making wine. One bottle requires the labor of many, many people, from the wine maker right down to the people picking the grapes. But it’s more than labor – it’s also weather, the main thing people are referring to when discussing a vintage. If you’re a California…MORE

Brian’s Wine Wednesday: Canvasback Cabernet Sauvignon

I am so impressed by the quality of wines coming out of Washington State! There have been tremendous values there for quite some time, but lately, I have tried some truly magnificent wines, and this one sets the bar very high. Take the magic of Napa’s famed Duckhorn vineyards, mix it with Washington State’s Red Mountain…MORE

Brian’s Wine Wednesday: Coppola Sofia Rosé

Brian’s Wine Wednesday: Coppola Sofia Rosé

On a hot summer day, enjoying a heavy red wine gets a little harder. Admittedly, on days like this, I will often crank up the AC and still pour myself a nice Cabernet! But there’s something about sitting outside, feeling a warm summer breeze, and lifting a glass of crisp, chilled Rosé to your lips.…MORE

Brian Demay’s Wine Wednesday: Santa Julia Mountain Blend

Brian Demay’s Wine Wednesday: Santa Julia Mountain Blend

As much good wine as there is available to explore, I still break them all down to two categories: quick and slow. There are millions of wines that are pleasant enough, you like the taste, but you’re not going to spend much time thinking about them during, or after, you have a glass. I consider…MORE

Brian Demay’s Wine Wednesday: Shebang Tenth Cuvee

Brian Demay’s Wine Wednesday: Shebang Tenth Cuvee

My daughter at dinner recently said “Dad, you take wine too seriously!” She was annoyed because I made her move as I took a picture of this week’s featured wine, Shebang Tenth Cuvee, a California red blend from Sonoma’s Bedrock Winery. My wife and I found this one totally at random on our weekly trip to…MORE

One of the great things about Wine Spectator is that all their ratings are based on “blind tasting,” i.e. the critics do not know anything about the wines they rate, so they are not influenced by the label, the maker, or if they advertise with the magazine. I can tell you from experience that blind…MORE

Brian Demay’s Wine Wednesday: Gabbiano Black Knight

I have heard it said that now is a phenomenal time to get into wine, because a lot of the old rules no longer apply. For example: you can buy a nice Bordeaux or Napa Cabernet, drink it now, and it will taste great. In years past, you pretty much had to lay down a…MORE
