We made this Pinot Noir from clones native to the Dijon region of France; a climate not unlike the one we enjoy here in Monterey. Notes of cherry red fruit, vanilla cola, limestone and rich woody character of cedar join together to create this soft and light Pinot.
This wine is made from the same clone of Pinot Noir (777, aka “Triple Seven”) from two ranches in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Blended together, this wine exhibits the true qualities of a Triple Seven Pinot Noir. Notes of currant, dark plum, blackberry, and warm vanilla open the bouquet, followed by warm leather and the rich minerality typical of the SLH growing region. On the palate, rich, juicy flavors of blackberry and licorice create a round mouthfeel, full bodied and balanced.
A collaboration wine crafted by Sam Berketa from Alpha Box & Dice, our partner winery in Australia, and Folktale’s own, David Baird. While the adults weren’t looking, the two decided to make a special blend to commemorate the 2018 vintage. De-stemmed Pinot Noir was placed atop whole cluster Syrah grapes to ferment natively in a single bin. The result... if it hadn’t turned out so tasty, they would both be grounded.
This is a big, robust wine with layers of cedar, cherry cola, baking spice, and lingering soft tannin. We aged 20% of this wine in new French Oak barrels for 18 months, with the balance in neutral oak, allowing the wine to integrate and round out. The result is a rich luscious wine that pairs well with big flavors and big personalities.
A bold Syrah, this is a smoky and savory flavor bomb loaded with layers – charred cedar wood, vanilla, soy, black tea, white pepper, sweet cherry cola, baking spice, tobacco, well worn leather, baker’s chocolate, and mocha. This wine shines now and will only enhance with age. Enjoy at your leisure.
We are excited to introduce this Gewürztraminer - Floral notes open with rich hints of honeysuckle, jasmine, pear, and cucumber water. These flavors combine to create a confectionery finish that reminds us of a champagne gummy bear, with a Meyer lemon twist.
Our new 2018 Albariño is like our Wine Garden during springtime when the flowers are blooming. Richly fragrant with lush and floral notes of orange blossom, honeysuckle, and fresh peeled citrus, this refreshing wine is balanced with fruit forward flavors of peach and apricot and bright, crisp acidity.
The Folktale Reserve Chardonnay opens delicately with elegant notes of apricot, banana, kiwi, green apple, vanilla, and toast. It’s fruit forward, yet balanced beautifully with the SLH minerality and a bright, zippy acidity. We made only four barrels of this marvelous wine - enjoy.
This sumptuous Rosé of Grenache Blanc is richly aromatic with layers of floral characters like a bouquet of California wildflowers in springtime. Notes of kiwi, strawberry, stonefruit, and ripe honeydew melon bolster the floral aroma. The palate is soft and elegant, punctuated by a warm spiciness and lively acidity that makes each sip memorable.
This Pinot opens with juicy notes of blackberry, cassis, rose petals, and something like a strawberry-rhubarb pie. While the bouquet is delicate and nuanced, the palate is bold and complex with strong notes of black pepper, licorice, and spice. Elegant, complex, and spicy, this wine should be decanted before enjoying.
