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:

2010 Carte Blanche - Proprietary White Wine
Almost as good as the 2009 - similar in all regards.

2009 Carte Blanche - Proprietary White Wine
Forgot to add this note some time ago... Have had this wine several times: This wine is very consistent with a very fine white Bordeaux. It reveals crisp aromas and flavors of citrus and exotic fruit with a nice balance of oak, acidity. Very enjoyable.

2010 Giacomo Conterno - Barbera d'Alba Cascina Francia
Dense wine, with tremendous fruit and depth with a smooth finish that will tolerate rich food. Barbera at its best, which suites me quite well.

2000 Barde Haut
Has developed very nicely. Still forward but better with the age.

2009 Barde Haut
Deep color, rich nose and forward flavors less Bordeaux in nature and more new world. Requires some time to open - would suggest decanting for an hour prior to drinking. Smooth berry and fruit flavors with added complexity of oak and earth. Very nice, especially considering the price. I would give this another year prior to consuming more - I do prefer younger, forward wines.
