Wine & Spirits
" In its camellia and fruit blossom scents and its mildly tropical expression of pear and apple flavors, the 2016 Eroica may not be the most complex riesling you’ll taste this year, but in its succulence and juicy purity, it may be the most satisfying, channeling a dose of lambent Eastern Washington sunshine."

James Suckling
" A fresh and clean white with green apples, sliced pears and green mangoes. Medium-bodied, crisp and vivid."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
" The 2016 Riesling Eroica is a great success, offering up a fragrant but elegantly understated bouquet of peaches, white cherries, lychee and citrus blossom. On the palate, it's light to medium-bodied, off-dry and stony, with mouthwatering acids and refreshing spritz. For the price, it's hard to beat."

Wine Enthusiast
" Hightoned lime zest, lime leaf, white peach, honeysuckle and mineral aromas lead to sleek, well-balanced stone fruit and green apple flavors in this wine. It’s delightful on its own, but would also shine at the dinner table."

Wine Spectator
" Graceful and elegantly dynamic, with expressive lime, grapefruit and mineral accents that finish with vibrant acidity. Drink now."
