92 points/'Cellar Selection,' Wine Enthusiast: "The aromas are reserved, with notes of lime, flower, wet slate and herb. The dried Nestea lemon iced tea flavors are center focused initially, broadening over time. It's a touch off-dry, barely perceptible given the big blast of acidity behind it. Pair it with lemongrass curried chicken. Best after 2022. Alcohol 12%. (Sep 2021)"

92 point Wine & Spirits: "The flagship wine from this joint partnership is almost idealized as a Washington riesling, a wine that’s always about sunniness. The 2019 smells of citrus with talc-like, tangy lemon-lime scents that carry through the wine with a breezy elegance, the flavors kinetic in their lightness and energy, the finish tangy and bright, for oven-roasted turbot. (Aug 2021)"

91 points/'Smart Buys,' Wine Spectator: "This fresh and lovely Riesling is crisp yet supple, with notes of orange blossom, petrol and floral peach that linger on the long finish. Drink now. (10/15/21)"

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2019 Riesling Eroica is outstanding, and certainly up with the finest examples of the variety coming out of the United States today. Classic notes of green citrus, lychee, petrol, and crushed rocks define the nose, and it’s medium-bodied, with a racy spine of acidity, plenty of balancing sweetness, and a crisp finish. It’s well worth seeking out and a great value at the price. It’s also going to be incredibly versatile on the dinner table. (5/6/21)"

91 points/'GOOD VALUE,' Connoisseurs' Guide: "Redolent of well-ripened, yet not overly sweet peaches with a freshening note of lemon blossoms to its fairly intense, nicely extracted, varietal aromas, this year's Eroica is an expressive, very flavorful Riesling whose ongoing richness is presented with a good deal of energy and displays terrific fruity length. Just as we have become accustomed to expecting from Eroica, it is a wine guaranteed to improve in the bottle for years so long as its youthful charms can be resisted and is an eminently collectable, age-worthy offering that will reward keeping well past its tenth anniversary. (Sep 2021)"
