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.

2007 Felsina - Fontalloro
Amazing. Will probably get better with age, but great now. Beautifully balanced red and black fruit, great nose, and seamless tannins and a long finish. Very nice.

2001 Behrens & Hitchcock - Merlot Napa Valley
Tons of fruit, but a little thin, almost watery, in the mid-palate after an immediate fruit attack. On the plus side, it's still fresh as a daisy -- maybe the plastic cork is paying off.

2000 Luciano Sandrone - Barolo Le Vigne
The wine is well structured and generally appealing. For me, though, the flavors were too heavy with tar, pine, anise and menthol to be really great.

2001 Domenico Clerico - Barolo Pajana
Delicious, classic Barolo -- though on the dark and powerful end of the spectrum. Complex with a long finish, very well integrated and drinking great. All good.

2004 Silvio Grasso - Barolo Bricco Luciani
Enjoyable. Nice aromas and fruit, though the tannins are a little on the chewy side at the moment. Would probably benefit from another couple of years in the bottle. Had it with a nice grilled porterhouse and arugula & EVOO salad and it made for an extremely nice meal.
