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 87

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.

2005 Griviere
A noticeable improvement over the last bottle, this was more corpulent and showed ample Bordeaux typicity. The only nit I would pick - and it's a small one - is that it was completely void of brett, an element I actually enjoy (in small amounts) in Old World wines. Nevertheless, this was a terrific value for the price, and I would it buy again.

2009 Delas Freres - St Joseph Cuvee Francois de Tournon
Rather disappointing. Low acidity and lazy on the palate. Dull. Tasted cooked. Any flavors or tannins I was able to detect were modern in character and didn't reflect the appellation's terroir. Won't buy again.

2013 Castle Rock - Sauvignon Blanc Mendocino
Menthol-cool and refreshing, with a floral bouquet and silky mouthfeel. Simple but satisfying. A "pretty" rendition.

PurpleTeeth 90

2007 Pierre Amadieu - Gigondas Domaine Romane-Machotte
Big and heady yet balanced. Becomes more liquer-like and earthy with air but not overly so, showing espresso, mulberry and garrigue. Perfect now, and should hold until 2019.
