Growing Season Notes2016 was a beautiful growing year, yielding heavier than normal crop load, but perfectly balanced with good canopy management, yielded perfect acids and fruit notes. Early bud break, long growing season and a cooling down in August and September allowed for ample time to make winemaking pick decisions, providing for an all-around outstanding Riesling year. The vintage year for this Noble varietal displayed bright fruit aromas and lively acidity and with a little more body and weight in the mouth.

Growing Season Notes2015 yielded limited quantity but high quality fruit in the Snake River AVA. Many vineyards experienced rapid temperature decline in November of 2014 impacting the dormancy of the vines. However, certain varietals were unaffected. Riesling was truly a shining star of this vintage, responding well to the early spring and warm summer days and cool nights that Idaho is known for. The varietal displayed bright fruit aromas and lively acidity.
