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 Copain - Pinot Noir Tous Ensemble
Not up to par. Thin, closed (after 45 minute decant) and chopped finish. Could sense that the components were there...just couldn't coax them out.

2001 Leonetti - Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley Reserve
Had with a 2004 Maybach. Night and different wine. Leonetti still tight with solid tannins. Fruit is on the back end, not really on the nose and the front end. Total opposite to the Maybach with the fruit forward nose, vanilla/oak flavor with a slight hint of tannins. Leonetti better with the food...Maybach better to just sip. Both good, not great.

2005 Kosta Browne - Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
The candiness of this wines has mellowed (which I liked). The wine had a nice bright cherry finish that lasted about 30 seconds...enjoyed this wine.

2005 Sea Smoke - Pinot Noir Southing
Nice, but very muted. Dark color, but lean fruit...maybe in a funny state...have enjoyed this wine many times...tonight was just okay.

2005 Cayuse - Grenache God Only Knows
Had with a 03 Les Amis (Aus) and 07 Pure (French). All 100%. More smokey with big flavors. The Les Amis was the most integrated and complete...maybe due to the years of difference.
