The wine sells for around $10 a bottle. I had a glass at a restaurant in Raleigh after they told me they were out of the Gruner Veltliner I originally ordered to go with a goat cheese salad and pan-roasted Scottish salmon. Pale straw color in dim lighting. I thought it tasted like a dry Riesling with lemony nose and lemon and green apple on the palate. An online review of the 2006 vintage mentions tropical fruits and comments that it lacks acidity and is somewhat sweet on the palate. It may be a difference in vintages rather than a difference in perceptions. This may have been my first Idaho wine.
