Rather white peachy on the nose with underlying notes of fresh apple sauce and sweet sage leaf. Moderately sweet on entry with a lot of acidity making this vibrant and zesty on the palate. The fruit has a slightly tropical, exotic edge to it, showing off papaya and guava notes with a touch of ruby red grapefruit underneath. The grapefruit and some lime pith and mineral notes take over on the long finish that ends with a touch of mouth-cleansing astringency. This really is quite attractive, it just lacks a bit of life in the mouth. 88pts

Sweet, candied lime peel, apricot and apple aromas are layered on the nose. Noticeably sweet on entry, this has fine acid balance lending a transparent feel in the mouth and taking the edge right off the sweetness. The result is a medium-bodied, lime-based mid-palate with a touch of herb and apple peel complexity that extends over the moderately long finish. Nicely balanced and fresh if a touch simple, this checks all the boxes. 85pts

Eroica has a proven ability to age; in fact it needs at least a half decade in the cellar to show its real strengths. Tight and packed with primary fruit flavors of lime and peach, this beautifully proportioned wine has perceptible sweetness but plenty of natural acidity. Lively and fresh today, but best given a few more years in the cellar. - P.G. The 2010 Eroica Riesling had just been bottled when I tasted it. It displays similar aromatics but with more elevated acidity, a characteristic of the vintage that provides considerable refreshment in the finish. Bright, pale yellow. Slightly candied aomas of nectarine, white peach, spring flowers and minerals. Off-dry and aromatic in the mouth but a bit one-dimensional, with moderate fruit intensity. Seemed to flatten out when the CO2 dissipated. Thins out on the back ending, finishing with hints of nuts and honey and a trace of warmth. ** SOLD OUT **

Exudes mandarin orange and sweet lime aromas and flavors with subtle mineral notes. The mouth-watering acidity is beautifully balanced by flavorful Washington Riesling fruit.

Pale yellow-straw. Sexy aromas of nectarine, ginger and nutmeg. Moderately sweet but not at all cloying, with nectarine, apple, pear and brown spice flavors complicated by a saline quality and perked up by white flowers and CO2. Not particularly gripping and very easy to drink. Finishes just off-dry, with a menthol nuance and a suggestion of crab apple that brought my score down.

Light and appealing for its delicate pear and peach flavors, with hints of mineral and chalk, dancing lightly through the open-weave, off-dry finish. Drink now through 2013.

A light and tangy version, this is juicy with green apple and floral aromas and flavors, lingering on the deft, lightly sweet finish. Drink now through 2014.
