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.

2012 Rhys - Pinot Noir Family Farm Vineyard (San Mateo County)
Popped and poured. Drank over two days. Ruby color. Aromas of cherry, spice, and a bit of strawberry. Sour cherry on the palate with a silky texture and very soft tannins. Fairly high acid wine with a bit of sweetness. Very enjoyable medium-bodied wine, though was hoping for more structure and mineral tones more akin to a mountain wine or a Burgundy. Very little experience with Rhys wines, so hard to say if this wine improves much over the next 3+ years. Because the tannins already are lying down, I don't expect dramatic improvements from this wine; try again in 1-2 years.

NV Louis Roederer - Brut Premier
Bright and fresh. Mild citrus flavors; some yeast and richness in the mid-palate. Well balanced and thoroughly enjoyable. Definitely a "go to" NV bubbly!

2002 Camille Giroud - Volnay
Popped and poured. Bright, light ruby color. Red fruit and some spice. Very silky texture and great mouth-feel. Short to moderate finish.

2004 Latour
Double-decanted 3+ hours prior to drinking. A bit surprised at how well this wine was showing due to the vintage and its relative youth. Rich but elegant wine with seamless balance of fruit, acid and structure. A rather powerful wine but not heavy in any way. This wine should drink well for many years.

2003 Cos d'Estournel
Double-decanted 3+ hours prior to drinking. Dark fruits, even some plum, along with some mocha.
