Eroica 2008 Eroica Single Berry Select

Wine & Spirits, 2015

96 Points - 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…

International Wine Cellar, 2015

Pale straw-yellow. Lemon drop, grapefruit and underripe pineapple on the brisk nose. Slightly metallic in its juiciness, but showing a tactile texture and intriguing salinity to its citrus, spice and subtle leesy flavors.

International Wine Cellar, 2015

92+ Points - November 15

Deep, bright ruby. Crunchy, pure, very primary aromas of black raspberry, blackberry, huckleberry, violet, lilac and garrigue, along with a note of mocha. Plush, savory and sweet, with enticing dark berry flavors given lift by a wild herb quality and a floral nuance.

Dark ruby-red. Black cherry, licorice, dark chocolate and some sexy oaky high tones on the nose. Suave, oak-influenced flavors of blackcurrant, mocha, espresso and licorice are a bit medicinal in a positive way. Finishes with densely packed, fine-grained, horizontal tannins...

Columbia Valley 2013 Merlot

Wine Enthusiast, 2015

89 Points - November 1

There’s immediate appeal to this wine’s plum and cocoa aromas, with Syrah (11%) adding game and smoke. The flavors are fruit-forward with plenty of plushness that make it hard to resist. It doesn’t seem entirely varietally correct but after the second sip all that is forgotten.

Red-ruby. Musky aromas of blackberry, molasses and chocolatey American oak. Firmly built Merlot with penetrating dark berry and ripe cherry flavors complicated by hints of tea leaf and rhubarb. Finishes with a solid spine of chalky, fine-grained tannins and lovely length. Seriously structured Merlot with cellaring potential.
