One more thing to say--year’s coming to a close.  That just means another begins.  Time, what we say it means.  Even in the instances of wine, Literature.  Wine, drinkable when you say it is.  “Oh no, you have to lay this down for another 5 to 7 years, at least.” But if I like the way it tastes now, what’s the problem?  Sophistication of palate, entirely subjective.  Whose palate is more sophisticated, by whose standard(s)?  Which yardstick are they using to establish such “standards?” Should I have laid this ’07 Merlot down for a couple more years?  Plainly, NO.  I love how it taps on my palate, NOW, with forward flavor flirtation.  Wouldn’t change any developed, or underdeveloped, attribute.  Perfect timing.
