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:

1998 Mordoree - Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois
Wow. This is at its peak and this is why I love CDP. Ripe strawberry, raspberry and black cherry fruit complemented by flavors of kirsch, raspberry compote, spices and white pepper. Tannins are finely grained and silky smooth. Perfectly balanced wine. Delicious, satisfying finish.

2006 Carlisle - Zinfandel Sonoma County
Solid zin. Ripe, extracted dark berry fruit. Medium to full-bodied with round tannins. Not overly complex. Good length to the finish.

1996 R. Lopez de Heredia - Vina Tondonia Blanco Reserva
This needs to open up so I would decant. Once it does, shows core of ripe citrus fruit. Also very dry with flavors of nuts and sherry. Persistent, lengthy finish. This style will not be to everybody's liking yet is a very good wine.

2005 Coulaine - Chinon Bonaventure
Deep, dark berry and blackberry fruit. Framed by notes of chalk, beef blood, bacon fat and lead pencil. Robust, earthy and complex. Well-integrated tannins lead to a lengthy finish.

1996 Pierre Moncuit - Brut Vintage
Deliciously mature Champagne. Fine mousse. Flavors of ginger, bread dough and baking spices. Great depth and balance. Dry and yet refreshing. Need to find more!
