2014 Roussanne

Our second ever release of 100% Roussanne, most of which goes into our flagship Pastoral Blanc blend. From the esteemed Saralee's Vineyard, Russian River planting, this small less than 1 acre planting of Roussanne is the only one in the entire AVA. (Compared to over 7,000 acres of Chardonnay.)

The cool climate is more akin to the Northern Rhone, and creates a more bright expression of Roussanne, while keeping its richer texture.

Aromas of brioche, apricot, hint of lemon curd and marzipan.  Layered flavors of white peach, golden raisin,  meyer lemon, and sea salt, wet stone, in a lingering finish.

This wine sings with food - pair with triple crème cheeses, crab or scallops, Sunday Roast chicken.

Only one barrel, 25 cases made.

2013 Centime

Centime, French for Penny, is Two Shepherds small annual production of skin fermented Rhone white wines, known as "orange" wine, because of the color the skin contact gives.

Who says orange wines have to be tannic and/or oxidized. If you have had William's unique style of red wines, you may appreciate Centime, a gentler, more approachable orange wine.

The 2013 release is mostly Grenache Blanc from Santa Ynez, with a litte Marsanne and Roussanne from El Dorado blended in.

This wine was crushed and fermented on the skins for 12 days until dry, exactly like a red wine, then very lightly pressed by hand to a neutral barrel, where it aged for 10 months.

Nice structure, minimal tannins for an "orange" wine with aromas and flavors of citrus peel and spice. Recommended serve with food.

1 barrel - 25 cases crafted.

2016 Rosé of Carignan

As popular as our 2015 Rosé of Carignan was, William wasn't satisfied with it, and adjusted the aging regime to 100% stainless. The end result is a wonderfully fresh, vibrant Rosé, yet retains the complexity our Rosé is known for. Unfortunately only one barrel, 25 cases, was made this year, so it will not be around for very long!

This 1/2 ton lot, was picked (by William himself) expressly for rosé, 2 weeks before we picked for our red production, to produce the natural acidity and alcohol that is the hall mark of classic rosé. While its tempting to drink it right away, those with a cellar, will enjoy savoring bottles all year round.

1 barrel - 25 cases crafted.
