Wines

 From the famed 135 year old Bechthold Vineyard in Lodi,  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.

Always 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 10 months, then bottled.  A thought provoking wine Eric Asimov of the NY Times called an example of “delightful, delicious wine from under-appreciated grapes." 

Unfortunately only 1.5 barrels, 30 cases crafted in 2016.

Who says orange wines have to be tannic and/or oxidized? This is a gentler, more approachable orange wine. 

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. The 2016 release is 100% Grenache Blanc from Santa Ynez, our final release from this AVA. 60 cases crafted

Highlighted in Forbes by Michelle Williams' article What's The Deal With Orange Wine? as as wine "demonstrating the age-ability of this category" with "structure, depth, and elegance uncommon in this category. Food pairings only limited by imagination."

This syrah is a one off, single barrel lot. Owned by our friend down the street, we picked a 1/2 ton just because....

It's quite pretty and light, with notes of blueberry, white pepper, a great every day drinking wine, for those who like the more delicate side of syrah.  Only 25 cases made.

Almost sold out! Remaining amount will soon be allocated to Flock Wine Club only.

The 2010 Syrah|Mourvedre was a small production hit. (If you still have some its drinking wonderfully.)

The 2011 is brighter and leaner (hard to imagine!) and has been undergoing extra bottling aging for the Mourvedre to reveal the signature complex salinity that made the 2010 so popular, and is finally ready.

The Syrah was again from Saralee’s Vineyard in Russian River Valley, and the Mourvedre from famed Rhone grower Ron Mansfield, in El Dorado.
