Chateau Ste. Michelle & Dr. Loosen Riesling Columbia Valley Eroica 2004
Had the Eroica with dinner recently, and while it had been a few years since I'd had it, it still lived up to my memory of it as an absolutely fantastic American Reisling. A fabulous choice and not too pricey. It certainly impressed my guests!Add winemaker's notes

My favorite American riesling of all that I've tasted. We had this with a perfectly-matched meal while travelling. This would be a great introduction to riesling for someone new to this varietal.
This is a fantastic riesling which is made in the US, but in a more German style. It's slightly floral on the nose, with nice peach notes. The taste is fantastic: nice and dry, though not too dry with typical riesling characteristics. There are few wines that pair so well with Chinese or Indian food, but this is truly great with either, enhancing the flavors and spices in the food but holding its own at the same time.
Very nice, although I'm not sure I see the dramatic difference between this and the lower priced Ch. Ste. Michelle offerings. Very pale. Lemon and peach aromas and palate, with perhaps a touch of mineral in the finish but not much. Only my second bottle of Eroica, and while it was very good the QPR is not there for me.
Doc Loosen's American Riesling - is a fantastic kabinet, trending a little drier with lovely floral notes. Applicable for a lot of meals, this is my "go to" wine for spicy Asian food. If you like rieslings, this is a must.
