Another one of My favorite Rhône white varietals. Originating in the Northern Rhône, in an area called Condrieu, where all they are allowed to grow is Viognier. This is also one of those grapes that I have made many times, but without achieving my goals that I felt I could.
Then, I was offered an opportunity to make Viognier from Stagecoach and thought to myself, it's working for Marsanne and Roussanne, let's see what happens with Viognier.
I knew if I was going to undertake this adventure, I wanted to collaborate with one of my favorite Condrieu producers. So, I gave a call to Yves Gangloff, and just by luck he was going to be in California and had time to walk the vineyard with me. We designed a game plan and the rest is history: 2 Guys • 2 Barrels. The label design is by his son, Loup.
I started Jeff Cohn Cellars with the help of my mother, Iris. One adorns the label as a tribute to her.
Appellation: Napa Valley
Vineyard: Stagecoach, sustainably farmed, originally planted in the late 1800’s then brought to glory in the mid-1990s beginning with the removal of 1 billion pounds of volcanic rock.
While Cabernet Sauvignon is the primary varietal grown, its Marsanne, Roussanne, and Viognier are unmatched in their depth and complexity. I source here purely and simply for the minerality, roundness, and depth that the vineyard offers to my beloved Rhône white varietals.
Vinification: 100% Viognier
The fruit is hand-picked then cold-soaked. I gently foot-stomp the fruit of which 100% is whole cluster, the rest is whole berry and de-stemmed. None is crushed. The wine goes through open-top, then 100% Malolactic fermentation and aged 11 months in 50% new French oak barrels.
