Tasting Notes

90 points Wine Spectator: "Light, bright, tangy and appealing for its delicate green apple, peach, floral and lime flavors, lingering nicely and hinting at mineral on the polished finish. Drink now through 2012." (06/07) 91 points from Robert Parker: "The whites start with the 2006 Eroica Riesling made in collaboration with the Dr. Loosen estate in Germany’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. Loosen’s great Mosel Rieslings. Stashing a few bottles is a very safe bet." (08/07) One star from the Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine: "While there is no questioning the fruit or the balance of this carefully made, squeaky clean wine, we admit to wanting a bit more in the way of intensity and depth. Its slight sugars are teamed with well-proportioned acids, and it is bright and lively from beginning to end. We would not be surprised if it blossoms with a few years in the bottle, but, for now, it needs pairing with lighter foods." (09/08)
