                       Thursday, December 5, 2013

  Mr. THOMPSON of California. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize 
Dr. Ann C. Noble, an Emerita Professor, Sensory Scientist and Flavor 
Chemist from the Department of Viticulture and Enology at the 
University of California, Davis. I honor her today in conjunction with 
the American Society for Enology and Viticulture, which will be hosting 
an all day symposium in her honor on January 31, 2014.
  Over the course of her career, Dr. Noble's research has contributed 
greatly to the advancement of viticulture and enology. Some of her most 
notable research conducted while at U.C. Davis was the application of 
multivariate statistics to sensory data and the creation of a 
standardized language to describe wine, known as the Wine Aroma Wheel. 
In addition to this important research, Dr. Noble has also published 
over 150 papers and book chapters and has taught many students at U.C. 
Davis through her course, titled ``Wine Types and Sensory Evaluation''.
  For her work, Dr. Noble has been honored by the American Society for 
Enology and Viticulture, Decanter magazine, Women for Wine Sense and 
IntoWine.com. Significantly, Dr. Noble was the first female faculty 
hired into the Department of Viticulture and Enology at the University 
of California, Davis.
  As founder and co-chairman of the Congressional Wine Caucus, I am 
incredibly proud of, and grateful for, the contributions Dr. Noble has 
made to viticulture and enology in California. Mr. Speaker, it is 
therefore appropriate at this time that we acknowledge Dr. Noble for 
her significant and lasting contributions to the American Wine 
Industry.
