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:

2001 La Rioja Alta - 904 Gran Reserva
Delicious, classic rioja. Sappy red raspberry, black cherry and red berry fruit. Flavors of kirsch, sweet cigar tobacco, leather, white pepper and spices nicely interwoven and well-balanced. Finely grained tannins well integrated. Delicious, satisfyingly long finish.

2005 Turley - Zinfandel Mead Ranch
Just past its peak but still extremely enjoyable. Flavors of blackberry, sour cherry, kirsch, black licorice, beef blood, white pepper and spices play off each other nicely. Great complexity. Well integrated tannins add structure. Great length and flavor to the finish. Still delicious.

2005 Turley - Zinfandel Cedarman
On the backside of its drinkability. Decent concentration. Dark berry and black cherry fruit with sour cherry flavors. Ripe fruit never quite shines through enough. Decent finish. Too much sour cherry and bitter fruit skin dominate.

2004 Williams Selyem - Pinot Noir Flax Vineyard
Past its peak but still enjoyable. Red berry fruit with floral notes. Not tremendously complex. Decent finish. Mature and more elegant than not.

2005 Turley - Zinfandel Moore Earthquake Vineyard
A little disappointed. Seems to be on the back end of its drinkability. Still decent concentration with ripe blackberry and dark berry fruit. Slight spiciness. A bit lacking on the finish.
