2022 The Fableist ''067'' Tempranillo, Central Coast, California, USA

Loaded with blueberries, black currant and dark chocolate. The wine has a velvety mouth feel with a
lingering finish that is warm and fulfilling.



We included three Tempranillo vineyard sites in this vintage. We made the pick call based on the taste of the fruit: a balance between ripeness, tannin and acidity. Once at the winery, we de-stemmed the fruit 100%. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks with native yeast, and given one pump-over daily during fermentation. We
pressed the grapes and sent to barrels after 2.5 weeks on the skins, allowing malolactic fermentation to occur naturally. The barrels were 15% new American oak and 85% neutral oak.


​The Fableist is a collaboration between winemakers Curt Schalchlin and Andrew Jones. Curt, owner and vintner of the heralded winery Sans Liege, is known for his critically acclaimed Rhone varietal wines. Andrew, winemaker of Field Recordings, spends his days planning and planting vineyards and has stood foot in just about every vineyard on the Central Coast. Together, they produce The Fableist, a collaboration that gives special attention to the craft and story behind each wine.

Each bottle has been artfully designed and inspired by one of Aesop’s many fables. Just as each of his timeless vignettes has a moral, we believe that every blend has its own story to tell, its own lessons to teach. There’s something profound about wine; it can inspire, bring loved ones together, fill hearts with warmth. As you enjoy each glass, we hope these stories spark a desire to ponder what really matters in life — and may they encourage you to find the wisdom within yourself.
