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 best 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.
