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:

Oriole 89

2004 Cedre - Le Cedre
Still young, this is not an 82-point wine, as others have found. It is not a fruit bomb, and needs time in the decanter or glass, but it will reward a patient drinker. The fundamentals, notably its structure, are all there, and the dark fruit emerges after an hour...or a day...or two days. This wine will only improve.

2005 Louis Jadot (Duc de Magenta) - Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Garenne 1er Cru
An outstanding example of the Clos de la Garrenne, it shows of wet slate as the wine unwinds in the glass, and then lovely citrus fruits come to bear in fine balance. From cellar to table with just a nudge in the fridge. Still 3-6 years to go with this wine. Lovely on its own, it was a perfect accompaniment to a shrimp scampi.
