Eroica 2012 Riesling, Columbia Valley, Chateau Ste. Michelle & Dr. Loosen
From the producer of #68 On the Wine Spectator Top 100 2013!
It seems like every vintage is another winner for this extraordinary Riesling collaboration between famed Mosel Valley vintner Dr. Ernst Loosen and Chateau Ste. Michelle. Sourced primarily from three of Ste. Michelle's best vineyards. One in the Columbia Valley and two in the slightly cooler Yakima Valley. The wine reaches a richness level that is on par with the finest Spatlese from the Mosel Valley. This Riesling is bright, rich, lush and compelling. The sweetness is finely balanced with the bright acidity and the flavors are all lime peel, white peach, grapefruit and stoney slate. With 90 plus scores across the board Wine & Spirits scored this wine 94 points saying "The best Eroicas glide across the palate with a drive informed by lime zest and apple, all held by a mineral tether. This 2012 by contrast, while not lacking for energy, lingers beautifully, its scents going more the route of grapefruit and apple, the flavors weightier, the hint of petrol giving the wine intensity, length, even gravitas."

      The 2012 Eroica shows us once again the consistency of this dazzling Riesling collaboration. Floral, white peach notes on the nose combine with mouth-filling, rich flavors on the palate.
