The 2012 Eroica offers up racy, well-defined aromas and flavors of star fruit, citrus rind, green apple and edgy minerality on the nose.

Single Vineyards 2010 Canoe Ridge Estate Merlot

The Wine Advocate, 2013

90 Points - June 28

The nose offers a fascinating amalgam of peat, licorice, and dark cherry, all of which re-merge on a brightly juicy but at the same time substantial and satiny palate. The only reservation I harbor about this fine-value, focused Merlot is a bit of heat in its bittersweet, multifaceted finish.

The Wine Advocate, 2013

90 Points - April 5

The Ste Michelle-Loosen 2011 Riesling Eroica is scented with lime, apple blossom, clover, honeydew and mint, and gushes with juicy honeydew and apple fruit, its vivacity and (at 11% alcohol) levity reflecting the long, cool growing season including a summer without the usual hundred-degree heat spikes.

Ethos Reserve 2010 Ethos Reserve Chardonnay

The Wine Advocate, 2013

87 Points - April 5

“I'm looking for my little baby Burgundy with this bottling,” remarks Bertheau of his 2010 Chardonnay Ethos, pointing to the fact that half of it fermented spontaneously. There is also no filtration in recent years of the Ethos Chardonnays. A satisfying balance between creaminess of texture and juiciness, confectionary and nu...

Eroica 2010 Eroica Riesling

The Wine Advocate, 2013

90 Points - April 5

Green apple and crabapple as well as pineapple, white peach and honeydew melon inform a bright but (at 12.5% alcohol) quite substantial palate and a combination of density and vivacity such as is scarcely possible in wine from any other grape.

Columbia Valley 2009 Merlot

The Wine Advocate, 2013

88 Points - April 5

Delivers a positive deep combination of dark cherry, humus-like earthiness tinged with cinnamon and saliva-inducing salinity. As it opens to the air, a greenhouse-like amalgam of flowering and leafing things adds cepage-typical allure, and the polish of tannins and degree of persistence here are admirable.
