You may ask, "Why on Earth are they saying goodbye to a vintage that just released?" Well, as soon as the word got out how little 2009 Viognier we made, Club COWHORN members, sommeliers, and wine shops made a run on the winery leaving us with less than half.
Our site's rocky soil and cold climate bring some brilliant flavor out of the white Rhône varietals growing here at COWHORN. While much of our Viognier is reserved for Spiral 36, a blend that includes equal parts Marsanne and Roussanne, we always set some aside for a small production. With just 13 cases left at last count, it won't last long.
