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.

2005 Carlisle - Syrah Bennett Valley
Core of sweet black cherry and raspberry fruit. Notes of kirsch, bacon fat and cigar tobacco add complexity. Slight heat from high alcohol level (15%) but not unpleasant and doesn't detract. Wonderful concentration, finely grained, well-integrated tannins. Delicious, savory finish that goes on and on.

2005 Turley - Zinfandel Pesenti Vineyard
A nice, mature Turley. Ripe blackberry fruit with some spicy notes including flavors of cherry liqueur. Once again get those flavors of a blackberry pie with a graham cracker crust. Slight notes of vanilla. Good concentration yet well-balanced. Nice flavorful, lengthy finish.

1995 Joseph Phelps - Insignia
Absolutely at its peak. I decanted this and the delicious ripe fruit aromas just enveloped me while I was pouring the wine. Gorgeous ripe black cherry and black raspberry fruit enhanced by flavors of kirsch and Christmas spices. Wonderfully complex with great depth. Silky smooth tannins with a rich yet well-balanced mouthfeel. Mature yet still good freshness. A deliciously long, flavorful finish. A very special wine.

1999 L'Aventure - Syrah
A mature syrah with a lot of character. Core or fripe dark berry and blackberry fruit. Complemented by notes of bacon fat, beef blood and mesquite. Pleasant barnyard and earthy notes. Very complex. Rounded, polished tannins. Good body and depth. Finishes strong with good length.

1992 Michel-Schlumberger - Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve
As before this has developed into something special. Ripe dark berry fruit complemented by notes of tobacco, bacon and cedar. Fully integrated, polished tannins. Lengthy, lingering finish. A very enjoyable marure cab.
