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 Red Rooster - Cabernet/Merlot
Decanted with a bit of sediment. Still fruit forward and jammy. A bit disappointing, really. Lacked the quality that I'd hoped for.

2000 CastelGiocondo - Brunello di Montalcino
Decanted for about 2 hours. This was a dark wine, with a nose of fruit, cherry and leather. The taste was pleasant if not complex with leather and fruit and tobacco. Finish was a little short. Overall, a bit disappointing given its pedigree. Best wine of the night though, consumed at my Promotion party. Drink now.

2005 SCEA Vignobles Kopp Château Tour Salvet
Appearance; Inky black, opaque. Nose; leather, damp; tar, tobacco, horse blanket. Taste; leather, earth, leaves, rhubarb. Finish; super dry tannins, bitter. Overall; disappointed, seems under-ripe, very austere. Tannins are like chewing on grape stems. I will wait at least a couple more years before I try additional bottles as more bottle age may soften these dry tannins and compliment what little fruit there is.

2007 Francis Ford Coppola - Claret Diamond Collection Black Label (1910 Type)
Complex and smooth. Not over extracted. Still California, but euopean style. Enjoyable.

RussellA 92

2007 Tolaini - Al Passo
Tasted at the Willow Park 90+ festival. An awsome wine! 92pts Wine Spectator? And a Super Tuscan with 85% Sangiovese 15% Merlot.
