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:

2009 Montepeloso - Eneo Rosso
Thickly laden with dark fruits, plum and cherry, with some mint in the finish. Dark violet color coats glass as you swirl. Hedonistic drinking now or for 5 more years. Will yield a little more additional character and panache in the intervening years.

2005 Lagrange (St Julien)
Tasted the same vintage at the chateau back in 2009. The intervening years have given the wine an opulently smooth mouthfeel, a nice focus on black fruit and active but subtle tannins. I wish I had more than just one bottle!

2004 Haut-Brion
Noticeably tannic, with nice earthiness, tobacco, spice and minerality on the palate. Maybe a little early to open? For me, perhaps it's just a matter of personal taste, but I found the bottle lacked some of the character I would have liked to have seen from a wine of this pedigree (and price tag).

2009 Two Hands - Shiraz Bella's Garden
A quintessential fruit bomb. In time, finesse and subtlety will take over to make it a terrific food wine. For now, it's a big, bold adult grape beverage.

2006 Fiorita - Brunello di Montalcino
Special wine which made everone at the table happy. Hazelnuts, crushed spices and currants linger on a finish which moves from velvety to coarse and back again.
