2012 Columbia Valley Eroica Riesling The best Eroicas glide across the palate with a drive informed by lime zest and apple, all held by a mineral tether. This 2012 by contrast, while not lacking for energy, lingers beautifully, its scents going more the route of grapefruit and apple, the flavors weightier, the hint of petrol giving the wine intensity, length, even gravitas. —Patrick J.
