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.

2013 'Flash' Red Blend

In 2014 we lost Flash, our beloved 15 year old Australian Shepherd.  Flash was a gentle, noble soul who touched the hearts of all who knew him.

This unique blend is a tribute to the love he inspired, crafted from portions of two of our favorite barrels of Grenache and Syrah, from the esteemed Saralee's Vineyard.

Reflecting his personality, the Grenache is graceful and poised, the Syrah, noble and expressive. 

We invite you to share a glass with someone you love.

25 cases crafted.

Only 180 bottles for sale, do to the very small amount available, this wine is available by order for Flock Wine Club only.

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.

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.

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.
