Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Riesling is very good every vintage. This year’s vintage is a drier in style than years past. It opens with a very mild wet stone and apricot bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a mineral and green apple blend. The finish is quite dry and lingers for a while. The panel suggested pairing this wine with trout almondine. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: "This Eroica shows the crisp acidity of the cooler 2008 vintage. The wine 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. After a decade we have truly found our Eroica style, striving for beautiful bright fruit with crisp acidity and enhanced minerarilty." - Bob Bertheau, Winemaker
