“100 Best Wines of the Year” Wine & Spirits - November 1, 2012
(93 points, 4/1/12)
D Magazine - October 30, 2012
What to drink now: Riesling Created with the help of Dr. Loosen, one of the most well respected makers of Old World, German Riesling, made in Washington in a very dry style yet still filled with characteristic flavors of white peach, juicy citrus, minerals and white flower. Low alcohol, about 11%, with slightly higher residual sugar levels, but not enough to call this an off-dry wine, this is a great wine to start an evening with or pair with spicy Asian or Indian dishes or shellfish.
“Best Buys in the Market” Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine - October 1, 2012
We are and have been real fans of Riesling for a very long time, and wish there more of the stuff made locally. Not only does good Riesling offer a terrific range of character, complexity and sheer drinkability, it commands prices so modest that real values abound. At the very top of this month’s roster of Best Buys, the Chateau Ste. Michelle Eroica Columbia Valley 2011 is a stunning, wonderfully vital, ageworthy offering that ranks among America’s very best.
“Wine Picks of the Week” Florida Weekly - September 19, 2012
This slightly sweet riesling is a collaboration of Chateau Ste. Michelle and Dr Loosen of Germany. Nice aroma of white peach and light floral touch, the flavors are pear and peach with an underlying minerality and a light finish.
“Perfect Seafood Pairings” Wine Enthusiast - September 1, 2012
The coastal Pacific Northwest’s bounty of cold-water seafood and food-friendly wine is the force behind the region’s land-meets-sea pairings... Recommended wine pairing for Red Chili Dungeness Crab: “This dish always makes me think of Riesling,” says Davis. He likes its versatility, especially with seafood. Washington State is the largest producer of Riesling in the United States, and it arguably makes better Riesling than anywhere in the world outside of Germany. For spicy dishes such as this one, try an off-dry style like Eroica by Chateau Ste. Michelle and Dr. Loosen. The wine retains more than enough acidity to cut the sweetness.
