Columbia Valley 2015 Dry Riesling

Wine & Spirits, 2016

87 Points, “Best Buy” - December 1

Salty and citrusy, this simple white has scents of lemon juice and green apple, with a phenolic grip for a blackened chicken sandwich.

Artist Series 2012 Artist Series Red Wine

Wine & Spirits, 2016

90 Points, “Year's Best - 2016” - December 1

The 2012 Artist Series is about 70 percent Cabernet, the balance Merlot and Cabernet franc. It's big and juicy at the outset, its youthful plumpness marked by firm, plummy tannins.

Eroica 2008 Eroica Single Berry Select

Wine & Spirits, 2016

96 Points, “Top 100 Wines” - December 1

This wine isn’t so much poured as unleashed. It’s ludicrously over the top, crammed with flavor complexity…with heady botrytis scents of saffron and marmalade, and flavors of treacle and apricot syrup. All of that maddening power is carried with aplomb by brilliant, driving acidity…

Eroica 2013 Eroica Gold Riesling

Wine & Spirits, 2015 and 2016

92 Points - December 1

The 2013 uses the extra ripeness to achieve an extra level of intensity rather than sweetness, with scents of saffron and orange peel, flavors of peach and ripe pear bolstered by botrytis. It’s fleshy and rich, with a tension between the wine’s mouthfilling richness and the clean cut of its finish.

Single Vineyards 2015 Cold Creek Vineyard Riesling

Wine Enthusiast, 2016

88 Points - December 1

Still settling into the bottle, this wine is aromatically quiet, with notes of white flowers and pear. It drinks off dry, with generous amounts of stone-fruit flavors. If the aromas blossom, it could move up a notch as the flavors are quite well proportioned. —S.S.

Wine Spectator, 2016

This off-dry, spicy style weaves pepper and allspice notes through the grapefruit flavors at the core, dancing lightly yet intensely on the finish.

Columbia Valley 2015 Dry Riesling

Vinous Media, 2016

87 Points - November 29

Very pale, bright yellow. Reticent aromas of lemon, melon, peach, licorice and mint could use a bit more verve. Just a touch of sweetness here, supported by crisp acidity. Fresher and cleaner in the mouth than on the nose but a wine of modest nuance and intensity.

Single Vineyards 2015 Cold Creek Vineyard Riesling

Vinous Media, 2016

87 Points - November 29

Slightly stunted aromas of peach and tropical fruits. Supple, rich and moderately sweet, but with little grip or nuance to its very ripe stone fruit flavors. Easy to drink but lacks distinction. A bit of alcoholic warmth throughout.
