2014 Trousseau Gris

We are pleased to share our newest release of our only non-Rhone wine, Trousseau Gris, a very obscure grey skinned variety, originally from the Jura in France, and a 'unicorn' even there. The famed Fanucchi Vineyard is the only planting of Trousseau Gris in California, with a total of just 10 acres planted over 40 years ago. The Fanucchi Vineyard is adjacent to our farm in Fulton, which is how William first started making Trousseau Gris, first for personal consumption, and then by demand, he aquiesced into allowing a non-Rhone a part of our portolio.

For the few who tried and loved the 2012 release (only 35 cases), you will be pleased to see the wine return to a similar style. Fermented the first 5 days on the skins, this release has a medium orange, pink color, intense aromatics of a white, and the texture of a light red, basically refusing to be put in a category.

By demand, we upped production to 125 cases, so we would have more of this unique, popular wine to share.

2013 Mourvedre

Mourvèdre is a rarity in the Russian River Valley, whose cool climate produces a wine of balance and finesse. Native yeast fermented, partial whole cluster, in neutral barrels. This Mourvèdre is a very unique style, a vibrant wine with subtle layers of red fruits, light in color and body, with just a hint of salinity and tannin on the finish. Drink with a light chill in a Burgundy glass 12.3% alcohol. 25 cases crafted

2014 Carignan

Our first ever Carignan, and we couldn't be more delighted. As you might expect from Two Shepherds, a completely different expression of this variety. Light, bright, vibrant, with a hint of structure from some whole cluster during fermentation. Light red in color, only 12.3% alcohol.

More akin to Cru Beaujolais from Burgundy, than a Rhone. 

Grab a few bottles for a completely different side of this often over looked Rhone variety, before its all gone!

Farmed at the Trimble Vineyard in Mendocino, this gorgeous 40 year old block is head trained, dry farmed, and organically certified.

2014 Viognier

Two Shepherds latest release of our restrained style, cool climate Viognier. In 2014 we changed vineyards from Saralee's Vineyard to Catie's Corner. Catie's Corner is named after Saralee's daughter, and is also in the Russian River Valley, the same vineyard we farm our local Grenache Blanc.

Fragrant aromatics of jasmine and white peach, without being over powering as so many California viogner can be. Nice acidity and finish, will pair well with mild curries, shellfish, cream sauces.

Our 'atypical' viognier' is always a big hit with our customers and sells out immediately, so for 2014 we doubled production, to a (whopping) 75 cases.

2015 Carignan Rosé

Our 2015 Rosé is our first made from Carignan, from the Trimble Vineyard, the same vineyard of our popular 2014 Carignan red wine.  The Triimble Vineyard is 40 years old, head trained, dry farmed, and certified organic.

We picked one ton just for rosé, two weeks prior to our picking for reds. The grapes were crushed and left on the skins for 2-4 hours, then pressed. Fermented and aged 50% in stainless barrels and 50% in neutral French oak, giving the wine both great aromas, vibrant acid, and excellent texture and mouthfeel. Like our previous vintages of Rosé, it shows more complexity, and savory notes than many others. A perfect summer sipper, but also pairs wonderfully with all grilled summer fare.

2012 Syrah Mourvedre

We have been waiting patiently to release this special lot, and now finally in Fall of 2016 it's ready!

This very small lot (25 cases) of Syrah from the famed Saralee's Vineyard and Mourvedre from Windsor Oaks Vineyard showcases an elegant, delicate expression of these varieties. Brick red in color, with notes of black cherry and blackcurrant. Would pair well with charcuterie and sharp cheeses. 

Note: There is an error on the back label where it states 50 cases were made. In fact, it is only half that.

2013 Pastoral Blanc

Our latest release of our flagship white Rhone blend. Keeping with tradition, the primary variety is Roussanne (50%) blended with 25% Marsanne, 13% Viognier, 6% Grenache Blanc, 6% Grenache Gris.

The Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier, are from the esteemed Saralee's Vineyard in Russian River Valley. The Roussanne and Marsanne are tiny blocks there, and the only plantings in the entire Russian River AVA.

The 2013 might be our best Pastoral Blanc yet, or at least on par with the stunning 2011, though quite different. This year's complex blend is only 12.9% alcohol (difficult to achieve in a balanced Roussanne) and is bright and vibrant, yet aromatic and complex.

This is our annual wine released in time for dungeness crab season on the west coast, and also pairs beautifully with lobster, scallops and similar fare.
