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:

1978 Petrus
I intentionally paired the Petrus with a 2000 Kirwan Margaux (which is clearly on the young I hear "infanticide"?). Both bottles were opened at the same time. The Petrus is a "gentlemen", very smooth with no trace of tannin. It's not as fragrant on the nose as I expected, but the long finish made up for it. I'm very bad with those winey descriptions, so I'll spare you that. It can be drank on its own without food (may be a little bit of baguette to clear the palette between sips). The Kirwan still has a lot of tannin and can stand a lot more aging. The Kirwan opened up quite a bit with about 30-45 minutes of breathing (and swirling) and is excellent with the 4 different kinds of beef we had. Saved the Petrus for more sipping after dinner is over.

berry & oak

1998 Ausone - Chapelle d'Ausone
Opened this up last night because I think this is running near the end of drinkable year. But I'm wrong. It is likely still good for a few years of cellaring.
