Repeat note just to confirm that I still really enjoy this wine. Aging has changed the wine, mellowed it, but I can't say it is really better now than it was before, just different, and certainly not worse. This is in a fine place now. Will it get better with age? I'm just not sure. Acid is medium, and there's not a lot of tannic punch. It might develop or it might just fade. Why risk it?

(Coleman Nicole Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast) COLOR-medium, vibrant; NOSE-this is more interesting to me; has a cola component that I like; less oak; but more minerality/crushed rock thing going on with the hint of saltiness; PALATE-a little lighter than the '08; for me, this is more interesting and complex for me; I really like this, but I'm a hair concerned that it may be a little light for average consumer; this reminds me of a better and heavier Gamay which I'm a huge fan of; I get a floral rose petal component that I like quite a bit; this is palate specific, but I'm really impressed with this effort; GV-90+
