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:

2006 Palagetto Uno di Quattro
Pungent, penetrating to the sinuses, this Tuscan Syrah has heft, depth and power, with dark berry flavors, hot stones, a bit of astringency, firm tannins, rounded out by cocoa/chocolate. Definitely warm climate Syrah. More years might have smoothed this out...by why wait? :)

2013 Carrick - Pinot Gris
So smooth, so delicious...here's a white wine I can get behind. Very little petillance but very good acid and structure. Pineapple, pear and oak in the background. Just a lovely, smooth quaff with enough for food.

2006 Sant'Elena Quantum (L'Autoctono)
Really nice nose, very masculine. Plum and blackberry flavors dominate - probably the richest wine I've had from Sant'elena. Would have benefited from some air (but what wine doesn't). Some smoke and very full bodied - good pairing for mother in laws μÏ?ηβÏ?εκια!

2005 Badia a Coltibuono - Vin Santo del Chianti Classico
A fantastic vin santo - delicious caramel, honey, and orange. Amaretto and molasses. This needs Dianda's Almond Torte. Glides over the palate, fun to drink with fruit, chocolate amaretto bark. Light amber color, thin slow legs. Excellent.

2010 Nido - Clio
The Clio never disappoints...deep, and rich, almost port like at times it still glides over the palate, deftly hiding its alcohol. It's like drinking blueberry pie with vanilla ice cream and somehow there was a touch of honey almost which was unexpected. This was my attempt to turn someone on to Spanish wine that wasn't very familiar and it was certainly as close as one could get to a sure thing, though at the same time does not typify the country. Decanted and then filtered the rest back into bottle to finish later.
