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:

2012 Turley - Zinfandel Old Vines
Good balance and structure. Better than expected. Fruit forward with appropriate restraint.

1961 Calon-Segur
This was still enjoyable, but probably peaked 5-10 years ago. Color was murky faded brick. Nose was a bit old newspaper such that I was worried it was corked. Palate was better than the nose and the best description is probably just "old Bordeaux." Earthy with some subtle sweetness. Tannins were depleted.

2008 Marchesi di Barolo - Barolo Antiche Cantine
Light in color. Rose petal nose. Earthy and tannic. Will age for many years to come. Would hold at least a few more years before opening again.

Short and flat. Like water. Poured it out.
