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:

2010 Brancaia - Tre
Well balanced; would take a bit of aging, but very approachable now.

(Tasted Jan 27, 2015)

2010 Cantemerle
Big, bold tannins; dark purple fruit. Had to open one just to try it, but not to be touched for at least 7 years; better with 10+.

(Tasted Feb 5, 2014)

2009 Tayson Pierce Cuvee Rothchild Cabernet Sauvignon
Very approachable, nice dark fruit, but lacked the backbone of a true Bordeaux Blend. Paired it with Escargots, Steak, and Chicken...better suited for the lighter fare.

(Tasted Jan 18, 2014)

2005 Igneous - Cabernet Sauvignon
Continues to impress me; continues to be a crowd-pleaser! Opening up beautifully, but still complex and full-bodied. Definitely recommend Vinturi or other aeration; filter/screen caught some sediment from the bottle.

(Tasted Jan 12, 2014)

2009 Macard
Nothing special, but good everyday drinking Bordeaux varietal. Could have sat on it longer, but certainly approachable now.

(Tasted Jan 12, 2014)
