"there's a unity now, within the industry, to get New Mexico wines on the map versus fighting over whose wine is better, especially over the past three to four years. There are a lot of bridges being built"
- Jasper Riddle
Jasper Riddle and his Noisy Water have breathed new life into the oldest wine-making region in the country.
"Noisy Water’s 2016 Reserve Cab earned 92 points, the state’s highest rank, in critic James Suckling’s “American Wine Revolution” report, which covered tastings of more than 800 American wines not from California, Washington, or Oregon. The cabernet grapes are grown on 35-year-old vines in Deming, and the wine is aged in new French oak barrels."
