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.

1998 Azienda Agricola Sant' Elena - Ros di Rol
You appreciate this wine for its classic bordeaux-esque qualities. The nose is really gorgeous, very dry yet not tannic, extremely herbal. Rhubarb pie, tabacco. Even after nearly 3 days under a vacuvin it was still performing well. Last glass through a little bit of sediment, perhaps to be expected. Impressive for its age and the price. It lacked a certain fullness but well put together.

2006 Bernabe Navarro - Beryna Seleccion Alicante
Can't remember if I ever had a wine from Alicante, but we were 2 for 2 tonight, this in a lot of ways was like the Ruggero but smoother, bing cherry and milk chocolate, alcohol seemed higher but well hidden. Really good with food - perhaps more good to come from Valencia? Believed this was Cab, Merlot, Syrah and Tempranillo. Really good, great value.

2006 Ruggero - Toscana Rosso IGT
This was the right time to drink this, very smooth, tannins are softening, sweet fruit, ripe cherry, milk chocolate light minerals. Could have gone up against a steak. I was very impressed and I feel rewarded for holding on to this.

2006 Numanthia - Termes
Cork disintegrated which made the drinking experience less than optimal but with more air this could have been more special (and perhaps some better filtration). Nearly pitch black, lots of minerals, spice box, loam, mocha and some blueberry pie. Nose was growing and tannins for this are in a good place, was definitely in its drinking window. Didn't have the complexity or "wow" factor that usually characterizes the Numanthia wines, but nothing short of a good effort. Drink soon. Very well structured, and probably peaking.

2007 Ontanon - Crianza
Very accessible and consistent with the prior review. Very smooth, lots of oak, earthy and dried herbs> Fruit forward and shares that same sundried quality that I sometimes get with tuscan sangiovese. Will have more after 2 days of seal under vacuvin.
