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.

PurpleTeeth 89

2005 Castillo de Clavijo - Gran Reserva
Nice for the price. Cherry compote, dried flowers, relatively low acid but harmonious. Leans toward New World in style. A good value, would buy again.

2000 Cantemerle
Shows Bordeaux typicity, earthy, harmonious. The only nit I would pick - and this is a small one - is it's a little stingy on the fruit, but I would suspect decanting for two or more hours would correct that. Appropriately priced at $54/bottle.

2012 Roquebrun - Terrasses de Cabrio
The carignan is dominant, which result in a high-toned, fruity, cherry-like flavor profile. A generous dollop of brett (which I like) and tons of Southern France character.

2013 Bila-Haut - Cotes du Roussillon Blanc
Simple but crazy-good. Citrus, spring peas, minerals, relatively high acidity (which is great for pairing with food). The complete package for not a lot of coin. Very refreshing and substantial. Will continue to buy.

2003 Guigal - St-Joseph Lieu-dit St Joseph
This was nothing like the last bottle, which I felt was too fruity and over-extracted. While it showed generous fruit, the acidity, tannins and minerality were balanced. This bottle was one of the most popular in our International Syrah tasting (and Tila's favorite).
