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.

2002 Pascal Doquet - Grans Cru Le Mesnil sur Oger
Balanced and relatively full-bodied for a BdB. Yeast and apple aromas and flavors dominate this very enjoyable bubbly.

2002 Calon-Segur
Opened and double-decanted 2 hours prior to dinner. Aromas of currants and sweet oak; still quite primary fruit aromas after 13 years. Well-balanced, medium-bodied flavors; pleasantly surprised to the upside given the so-so vintage. Don't believe this wine gets any better than now.

2004 Felsina - Chianti Classico Rancia Riserva (Berardenga)
Popped and poured. Dark red/black color. Aromas of black fruits and some smoke. Big, juicy flavors with nice acidity and softening tannins. Many years ahead for this wine, but in a really good place right now!

2005 Louis Jadot (Domaine des Heritiers) - Beaune-Boucherottes 1er Cru
Popped and poured. Drank over a few hours. Consistent notes with same wine tried in 2014. Medium plus bright ruby color. Nose of dark red fruits and earth. A fairly big wine owing to the vintage. Rich mouth-feel with good balance of fruit, acid and tannins. Lots of life ahead! Great value!

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.
