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.

2000 Fieuzal
Ruby bricked appearance with signs of aging, but still very slightly opaque. Strong Cherry and strawberry first off on the nose. A lively and good acidic structure with notes of light cinnamon and white pepper smells. On the palate a very slightly sweet stewed fruit front and long fruity aftertaste. Great balance and structure with some prune and ripe cherry. Drinking very well with 2-3 years ahead. Excellent

2001 Pavie-Macquin
A translucent and reasonably aged appearance with a burgundy tone. On the nose, plum, ripe black fruit, chocolate and a slight passion fruit. Tastes of vanilla, plum stone, tobacco, with a lightly stewed fruit back drop. A touch of sweetness and a rather shorter length than I had expected. Still some tannin and the fruit was a little short in the mouth. This particular bottle did not meet up to expectation by very good all the same.

2001 Lascombes
Great Ruby / bricked appearance with nice ageing. On the nose, prunes, tobacco, stewed black fruits. strong tastes of ripe plum and prune with five spice, and cherry. The wine has great a balance between acid and tannin and full fruit. Excellent and pretty much at its peak.

2009 Penfolds - Shiraz Kalimna Bin 28
On the nose strong back berry fruits, strawberry and peach. Still a deep dark opaque back currant appearance with a slight amber ring. Thick, slightly sweet and big on the palate. Strong notes of black currant wityh light leather, pepper and guava. A young vibrant wine with plenty of life. Hopefully the sweetness will not win over. Excellent.

1986 Cos d'Estournel
A wine with a great aged appearance and a very interesting nose upon immediate opening. Minerals, slight rotting veg, black berry and rhubarb. The fruit is now slightly on the wane however, it is a very distinguished drink that shows its age in a classic bordeaux way. Smooth and silky but still with fruit on the finish. Very excellent.
