It’s been eons since we posted an actual Wine Teasers question so here goes:

The Wine Teaser is: Legally, on American wine labels, the term “Reserve” designates:

A: Top-quality grapes
B: Longer barrel aging
C: Nothing at all

And, as usual, here comes the GREAT BIG HINT.  Players move ahead more quickly if they don’t need the hint, but it’s always there, ensuring that  Wine Teasers wine game is playable by even people who know little about wine.

Hint: We don’t need no stinkin’ rules.

Answer: C. In European countries, Reserve is a legal term with very strict rules about quality and ageing. In America, it’s every man for himself. Some wineries use it for their best grapes, or for longer oak-aging, while others slap it on their cheapest junk.

That’s an actual question (one of the more serious ones, you might notice) from Cork Jester’s Wine Teasers wine game, the most fun, zany, unintimidating wine game on the planet!
