2005 Eroica Riesling - Ch. Ste. Michelle
To the bottle...
OK, why not just put the "t" in the name 'cause that's what everyone is thinking. Second, why does it say "Dr. Loosen" at the bottom? With it's sexy name and sleek look, it has to be targeting a younger market. But the Dr. Loosen label & $24 price tag don't quite support that hypothesis. Flavors of a big ripe juicy peach and a light mandarin orange highlight this sweet selection. Pretty good, 7/10 rating and went quite well with my Jerk Chicken as it cooled the flames.
P.S. I just Googled "Eroica" and apparently it's the name of Beethoven's 3rd Symphony. It's also Italian for 'Hero'. Dr. L has a pretty big noggin to compare this to either ;)
