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.

2001 Pine Ridge - Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District
Big and brooding - great bottle absolutely singing!

(Tasted Dec 3, 2012)

1997 Banfi - Brunello di Montalcino
A bit dried. Just a smidge past its prime. Smooth - lots of dried dark fruit. Great balance, a bit lighter than I would have liked, but it is a bit old.

1995 Fonseca - Guimaraens Vintage Port
Meeh...good but not great to me. For me, a good port needs more "gas" and less "jam". Which means a tawny port. Now THOSE are great... This was ok. I don't think I would spend the money for true vintage port given this showing. This is a single vineyard, single vintage port. It's about the next bestest thing to a vintage port you can get. Had some bright fruit with licorice. Can't remember much else, except a tawny port goes with a cigar much better. Too cloying. Maybe needs more time...

2005 Caravan - Cabernet Sauvignon
I have consistently been impressed by the Caravan label. I think I acquired most of these for about $22 per bottle. It's a really good wine that can improve with age - getting a decent balance of bold cab, elegance, and earth. For the money this is a great bottle consistently.

2006 Pride Mountain - Merlot Napa-Sonoma
Love Pride's stuff...this couldn't go down fast enough. Elegant but big.
