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:

2006 Williams Selyem - Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
I am a big WS fan, but this one was just "OK". Tasted like any other mid priced Pinot. Will try again in a few years.

2001 Shafer - Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select
This was truly a fantastic wine. Soft and supple. Decanted for 2 hours. Very soft on the palate, leather like. Powerful aromas abound. I will be buying many more bottles. Wow!

1997 Cakebread - Cabernet Sauvignon Vine Hill Ranch
Perhaps due to improper storage, the cork crumbled on its way out.... Decanted for a long 2 hours, but the wine was tightly wound and would not open up. Very disappointing. Could not taste the fruit in this one.

1982 Haut-Bailly
Rosy in color. Medium rim variation. Fast legs. Tar, Burnt Match, Stoniness. Nutmeg. Medium bodied. Full bodied. Leathery texture. Medium finish. The last of 3 bottles that I had purchased, all 3 had issues with broken corks. This is a pretty bad wine, and I will not be buying anymore so-so wines, even from a great year like 1982. Rarely have I wasted wine, and we could not even consume the entire bottle.
