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 Louis M Martini - Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma
Good value, a nice approachable cab ! Medium-bodied, good dark fruit, and the oak is restrained. Bit of interesting secondary flavors too, with more time in the glass (hint of mint, maybe a bit of coffee too).

(Tasted Jan 23, 2009)

2005 Trespass - Cabernet Franc
In the glass, brilliant ruby in color. Bright spicy cherry and cedar aromas. Medium-bodied, med-ripe cherries, red berry, moderate tannins. Great balance. A long, sweet finish. As the wine opens in the glass, some secondary aromatics including a bit of "green veg" characteristic of Cab Franc, as well as a hint of Coke or Dr. Pepper !

2007 Melville - Pinot Noir Estate
Dark ruby in color, beautiful Pinot. Sweet cherries/red berries, with a bit of vanilla/light oak. No Burgundian-style Pinot here, this is unashamedly Central Coast.

2007 Suxx - Shiraz
Very dark in color, completely opaque. The aromas include dark cherries and chocolate, and lots of dark cherries and cassis on the palate. Unless you really love big shiraz, I'd limit this one to the grilled steak, or you could always pour it on your pancakes.

2001 Bonny Doon - Freisa Con Fresa
This wine initially seemed to be beyond it's peak (quite probably it is), but with air-time it slowly opened up and proved to be a satisfying and enjoyable wine. Old-world (restrained) style, medium-bodied, with mainly red berry fruits, light oak.

(Tasted Jan 3, 2009)
