89 points "Bright and lively, with a juicy feel to the off-dry peach and apple flavors, finishing with a tangy mineral edge and a surprising touch of green olive. Has a real sense of elegance ... Drink now through 2007." Best 2005-2007

3 stars "Light stray color. Mineral nose with notes of green apple and citrus. On the palate, light-bodied, slightly sweet, fresh acidity with grapey flavors."

91 points "The 2004 Riesling Eroica, a wine made in partnership with Germany’s Dr. Ernst Loosen, continues this wine’s tradition of quality, fair pricing and stellar commercial success (23,000 cases were produced and they had to be allocated!). Its lovely aromas display white flowers, spices, and linden. On the palate, this light to medium-bodied effort reveals superb focus in its pure, harmonious personality. Spices, minerals, linden, and chamomile make up this seamless wine’s character. Drink it over the next 8 years. Though not reviewed as it was a tank sample, the 2005 Riesling Eroica was also tasted and found to be a worthy successor to the 2004." Best 2006-2014
