Wine & Spirits Review
Subtle and complex as ever, the 2017 Eroica delivers on its best features (including price!) while introducing a few more. It is always an accessible wine, just off bone dry; this one starts off with lemon and dried pineapple scents, then yields more complex markers of petrol, wool and citrus. It feels balanced and bright, luminous in purity, with a mild phenolic bitterness that holds the sweet fruit aloft. A steal at $20.
Eroica Riesling offers sweet lime and mandarin orange aromas with subtle mineral notes. The mouth-watering acidity is beautifully balanced by flavorful Washington Riesling fruit. Eroica is a blended statement of the finest Riesling vineyards in the state. To achieve our Eroica style we strive for bright fruit with crisp acidity and enhanced mineralilty.
