Chateau Ste. Michelle & Dr. Loosen 2012 Eroica Gold Riesling (Columbia Valley (WA))

A new entry in 2012, this shows the influence of botrytis, and is quite sweet with residual sugar at 75 g/L. It's an interesting wine, though not nearly as complex and polished as the original Eroica. Here the lightly honeyed fruit crosses into a slightly bitter, phenolic finish, with a lingering metallic note. Paul Gregutt
