Dinner for a visiting Jonathan Loesberg. (Il Corso): Quite a nice showing for this one. This was pretty acidic on release, but time has mellowed it out nicely. Aging gracefully with quince, mineral, honey, yellow flowers and nuttiness on the nose and palate. It's precise, but also shows nice richness. It's fresher and younger with less oxidation than some '96's and '97's I've had over the past few years, much to my chagrin. Drink or hold. A-/B+.
