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:

2005 Willi Schaefer - Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spatlese AP 8
Don't remember any details except that it was very, very good.

1985 Graham's - Vintage Port
Color: Rose with hints of tawny, and a clear white edge; nice legs. Nose: very little; some alcohol, definite sweetness, and that's about it; no fruit that I could discern. Taste: very smooth entry, mid palate, and finish; little to no tannins left; likewise, very little fruit left, perhaps, some strawberries or plum; secondary characteristics were slight raisiny; very sweet, smooth finish, maybe a little hot but not much. All in all, it was certainly delicate, but it didn't really come across as nuanced and complex as I was expecting.

2008 Hamilton Russell - Pinot Noir - Hemel-en-Aarde Valley
Nice pinot noir. Wonderful bouquet. Medium body. Strawberries, distinct pinot flavor. Not as good as the 2007. A bit too much tartness/tanginess, even after 4 hours of air. Tasted again after 24 hours. Improved: less harsh. Tasted again after 48 hours. Even better, smoother. This wine definitely needs to be decanted and spend some time with air before drinking.

2007 Milton Park - Shiraz
Opened with homemade lasagna. Was not very enjoyable.

Quite good! Very fruity and smooth.
