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…
