Eroica Riesling 2010
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Eroica has put on racing stripes for the 2010 - a lean vintage with scents of lime and lemon, revealing a mineral spine from the aroma straight through to the finish. After a day the structure lengthens a bit and the flavors relax into lemon from lime, but the wine still has plenty of drive. Built for the cellar.
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. Cellar Selection
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.
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.
The first five vintages of Eroica Riesling (1999-2003) were named to Wine Spectator's "Top 100" list.
"I have long believed that a Riesling revival would have to start with a prominent New World winery like Chateau Ste. Michelle."
