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:

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.

2004 Cantemerle
This had a very strong black currant nose and lots of youthful fruit. Great appearance and not especially aged. On the ablate, black fruits and a slight sweetness. Warm spice and good length. A very good drink that will develop I am sure.

2001 Haut Madrac
This wine has stood up to aging well given its relatively modest status. Still fruity and vibrant with a reasonable body and length. The balance was fine, if on the thin side, and there was a good amount of berry fruits on the palate. Still a good and enjoyable drink with some life in it yet!
