W&S 93 WA 91 WS 90 IWC 89 - "The 2013 Eroica Riesling offers sweet lime and tangerine 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."


W&S 93 WA 91 WS 90 IWC 89 WE 89 Pts - According to Wine & Spirits - "Eroica in 2013 is deliciously precise, marked by a green apple freshness that isn’t just a flavor; it’s a feeling. Apple informs its lifted scent, its purity of flavor and also its driving, energetic movement. The textures draw to a close through the lens of citrus, lemon and lemon pith, a drawstring of focus and detail. A great aperitif, it would pair beautifully with lemon risotto as well."

According to Wine Advocate - "Easily one of the top examples of this variety coming out of Washington, Eroica’s 2013 Eroica Riesling Dr Loosen offers fabulous green citrus, lychee and green-herb qualities that flow seamlessly to a medium-bodied, vibrant and pure feel on the palate. Everything is perfectly integrated, the sugar is balanced by the acidity, and it finishes clean and crisp. I’d drink this beauty over the coming couple of years, but it will evolve for longer."

According to Wine Spectator - "Bright and generous, with hints of apricot and peach adding depth to the pear and mineral flavors, lingering easily on the light frame and lively, off-dry finish. Drink now through 2018."

According to Stephen Tanzer - "Pale bright straw-yellow. Tangy white peach, tangerine, lime blossom and dusty stone on the nose and palate, with a riper pineapple element emerging with aeration. Offers good chewy texture and breadth without any undue weight, conveying an impression of dusty extract and a nice sugar/acid balance. More open-knit and less bracing than the 2010 release but with no shortage of energy. Relatively dry for this bottling—and a satisfying drink already. Finishes with good subtle length."

According to Wine Enthusiast - "This wine shows some pleasing aromatic complexity with notes of lime zest, apricot and flowers. It drinks off dry and is lightly spritzy in feel with good flavor intensity and abundant stone-fruit flavors that linger." 12% ABV.
