RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication". It is a way to easily distribute a list of headlines, update notices, and sometimes inventory changes to a wide number of people. Think of it as a one-stop shop for all the stuff you want to read online. For the consumer, an aggregator or reader, either web-based or installed on your computer, ties it all together.

To make use of this information, you have to download and install an RSS feed reader like SharpReader. Every so often, the aggregator checks the RSS feeds you selected. You log on to the aggregator and see the updates to your favorite sites, blogs and stores, all in one place. For more information on RSS, please visit:

2003 Araujo - Syrah Eisele Vineyard
Fabulous - both Kathleen and I enjoyed it very much. Drinking well now. Great balance and intensity without seeming heavy.

1997 Araujo - Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard
Tobacco and lead pencil on the nose. Very balanced and drinking well now, although not flamboyant (however, Kathleen was quite impressed with it). Seems like it is about in the middle of its drinking window.

1996 Giuseppe Rinaldi - Barolo Brunate/Le Coste
Very strange experience, starting with a nice nose with cherry and floral notes, but tastes of turpentine. Took two whole days before it became drinkable, at which time it seemed reasonably nice, but very tannic and acidic. Makes me wonder if it will come around, so may as well give it much more time.

1998 Bethel Heights - Pinot Noir Southeast Block (Reserve)
Barely showing its age. Very pleasant and balanced with decent fruit. Very classic Pinor Noir.

(Tasted Jun 16, 2007)

1997 Argiano - Brunello di Montalcino
Nicely balanced, aging well. No hurry to drink these.

(Tasted Jun 16, 2007)
