    Winemaker's Notes:

    This Riesling exudes mandarin orange and sweet lime aromas and flavors with subtle mineral notes. The mouth-watering acidity is beautifully balanced by flavorful Washington Riesling fruit. After a decade we have truly found our 'Eroica style,' striving for beautiful bright fruit with crisp acidity and enhanced minerality.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This wine just gets better with every new vintage. Young and fresh, it hits the palate with lip-puckering acidity, rolling on flavors of lemons, oranges, citrus rind, and then into mango and papaya. Though the residual sugar is listed at 1.6%, it shows only in a pleasing roundness in the lengthy finish. Delicious now, but entirely cellar-worthy for a decade or longer.

    Pretty, bright, clean and harmonious, this young riesling suggests herb and lemon in its scent, with freshness and drive propelling the wine across the palate. It's composed, if a little linear at the moment. No question it will fill out in the cellar; then serve with veal loin.

    Light and tart, the acidity balanced against gentle sweetness as the tangy grapefruit and apple flavors linger beautifully. Drink now through 2019.

    Love this wine. Goes well with food or just to sit and have a refreshing glass of wine.

    Perfect balance of acidity for my taste. Even if you don't like rieslings give this one a try.

    A great Riesling with wonderful aroma and flavor. Perhaps a little sweet, but well balanced, and the sweetness is tempered by the richness of the flavors. This was a favorite of all tasters.

    I've bought quite a bit of Ste Michelle riesling in the past, and for the rating I expected this vintage to be outstanding. Though it wasn't bad, I was a little disappointed. I prefer a riesling that is slightly sweet and mellow rather than crisp or tart. Silky is what I'm going for. This was more on the perky side.
