2015 Pastoral Blanc

Our latest release of our flagship white Rhone blend. Keeping with tradition, the primary variety is Roussanne (50%) blended with 30% Marsanne, 15% Viognier,  and 5% Grenache Blanc.

The Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier, are from the esteemed Saralee's Vineyard, the Grenache Blanc from Catie's Corneer in Russian River Valley. The Roussanne, Marsanne and Grenache Blanc are the only plantings in the Russian River AVA.

 This year's complex blend is only 12.5% alcohol (difficult to achieve in a balanced Roussanne) and is bright and vibrant, yet aromatic and complex.

Enjoy during dungeness crab season on the west coast, and also pairs beautifully with lobster, scallops and similar fare.

2015 Cinsault

New and available to the general public, because of RAW Wine Fair - for a very limited time only - this special 75 case lot from the famed 135 year old Bechthold Vineyard in Lodi, believed to be the oldest surviving Cinsault Vineyard in the world. This dry farmed, organic vineyard has very low yield, and produces a very complex expression of this variety, normally best as a blending grape.

100% whole cluster, foot tread, fermented with native yeast in small ½ ton bins. Gently pressed to neutral barrel to age on heavy lees for 9 months, then bottled.  A thought provoking wine Eric Asimov of the NY Times called “pure, deep, straightforward, super delicious.”  13.3% alc

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.

2013 Marsanne|Roussanne

Our first Marsanne|Roussanne blend from the granitic soils of El Dorado Textural and savory, from 6 hours skin contact, bottle aged for 2.5 years before release to ensure ideal time for enjoyment.

Slightly turbid straw color, aromas of Anjou pear, honey dew melon, and a hint of honeysuckle. On the palate enjoy flavors of yellow apple, melon,  with a savory finish.

Highly recommended to pair with food, seafood, shell fish, Asian cuisine and spicy food dishes.

3.5 barrels - 87 cases crafted.

(Please note, due to skin contact and late racking this wine can be a bit turbid (cloudy.) While many of our Flock like that, if you store the bottle cork up a day before serving, that can mimimize the cloudiness from sediment.)

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.
