The white wines begin with the 2008 Eroica Riesling, a collaboration between Germanyrsquo;s Ernst Loosen and Chateau Ste. Michelle. The grapes are sourced from a number of sites and several AVAs. Because of the wineryrsquo;s vast holdings, this superb Riesling can be made in quantity (27,000 cases) while maintaining exceptional quality. Light straw-colored, it has a lovely, captivating perfume of acacia, honey, mineral, melon, and tropical aromas. Crisp, light-bodied (11.5% alcohol), concentrated, and vibrant, this just off-dry (1.77% RS), Kabinett-styled Riesling has the balance to evolve for several years and should drink well for a decade.

The 10th vintage of Eroica may be the best ever. Itrsquo;s supremely fresh, spicy, and mineral-driven. The well-textured mouthfeel runs the gamut from celery, chervil and other fresh herbs into melon, citrus and stone. Though technically off-dry, this is a low pH, high acid wine with plenty of length and depth.

A blend of two estates mdash; Dr. Loosen from the Mosel, and Chateau Ste. Michelle from the Columbia Valley mdash; Eroica is an intermingling of Old World and New World philosophy and technique. It reflects not only its variety and site, but also its heritage: bold and forward from its Washington roots, elegant and refined from German inspiration. Named for Beethovenrsquo;s Third Symphony, Eroica is truly a concert of Old World and New World Riesling. A medium bodied, mouthwatering, acidic wine exuding gorgeous mandarin orange and lime peel with a kiss of minerality. It is found in almost every fine dining restaurant and worth every dime. A must have to complete a wine arsenal!

The 2007 Eroica Riesling, made in collaboration with the Dr. Loosen estate in Germanyrsquo;s Mosel region, is light to medium straw-colored with fragrant aromas of spring flowers, mineral, and honeysuckle. Crisp and just off-dry, in a Kabinett style, it delivers flavors of melon and pineapple. The wine is balanced and vibrant and may well evolve for several years in the manner of a top German Mosel Kabinett. It can be enjoyed now and over the next 5ndash;7 years.

With each vintage, Eroica, the joint venture between Dr. Loosen and Chateau Ste. Michelle, has grown more assured. The 2006 from joint winemakers Bob Bertheau and Ernie Loosen is simply invigorating, a mineral wine of moderate, kabinett-level ripeness that shows up the winersquo;s generous fruit without being sweet in the least. Aromas of golden apple with a hint of peach blossom lead; the flavors are deeper, more pearlike, finishing with a brisk, vibrant minerality.

Peach, menthol and a distinctly stony, fusel, slatey quality on the nose. Broad, ripe and moderately sweet, but the sexy, nuanced flavors of peach, minerals and crushed stone give the wine an exhilaratingly dry quality. Rich and long on the aftertaste, with a repeating fusel note. Partner Ernie Loosen must have tracked in the winersquo;s slatey element on his shoes from his estate in the Mosel.

The whites start with the 2006 Eroica Riesling made in collaboration with the Dr. Loosen estate in Germanyrsquo;s Mosel region. Since the project began, this has consistently been among the best non-dessert Rieslings produced in the USA and the 2006 continues in that tradition. Light straw-colored, it offers up a lovely floral, mineral, honeysuckle bouquet, crisp flavors featuring melon and pineapple, excellent balance, and a long, pure, refreshing finish. This wine may well evolve in the manner of one of Dr. Loosenrsquo;s great Mosel Rieslings. Stashing a few bottles is a very safe bet.
