Two Shepherds

El Dorado Mourvedre 2014

I think this is William Allen’s first Mourvèdre from outside the RRV. Pomegranate, red plums, and brine aromas and flavors. Throw in some lavender and dried herbs, too. Acidity balances beside lean tannin and a medium body. — a month ago

El Dorado Gamay Noir 2018

Very tasty. Classic banana nose. I am not a Gamay guy. But this is fresh and fun to drink. Hint of cherries banana peels touch dark berries. Quite tannic. Probably plenty of cluster. — 25 days ago
