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:

NV Fonseca - Finest Reserve Bin 27
Really, really ripe and heady, and redolent of violets, blueberries and iron, without being too sweet. This alone serves as a fine dessert.

2011 Tommasi - Sangiovese Cabernet Sauvignon Toscana Poggio al Tufo Rompicollo
Meh. Not great, but not awful, either. Not sure if it's the Sangiovese component, but this lacks drive and vitality. That said, this is certainly drinkable, but ultimately did not live up to my expectations. More bottle time, maybe?

2012 Segries - Cotes du Rhone
The black pepper component is really strong but balanced by supple, dark fruit. Doesn't show a lot of CdR typicity, but it's simple and pairs well with grilled beef or lamb.

2006 Gruaud-Larose - Sarget de Gruaud Larose
Not yet showing Bordeaux typicity. Pretty straightforward and drinks like a second wine, but nothing like the Grand Vin. Wouldn't buy again.

2013 Burnside Road - Sauvignon Blanc
Okay for the price. Drinks like a typical SB from a warm climate (e.g., zesty tangerine, citrus, etc. rather than gooseberries, herbs, etc.). Okay to try once, but wouldn't buy again.
