2018 Folktale Late Harvest Gewürztraminer

Must be 21+ to purchase & participate.

2018 Folktale 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.

2017 Le Mistral Joseph’s Blend
This vintage of Joseph’s Blend is juicy, spicy, and well structured thanks to a subtle addition of Petite Sirah. Fruit forward with luscious notes of cherry and raspberry, the bouquet opens to reveal black pepper, cured meat, and Herb de Provence with rich and creamy vanilla and toasty crème brûlée to round out the spiciness. This is a perfect summertime smokehouse wine to compliment your favorite braised ribs, balsamic veggies, and Carolina BBQ.

2017 Folktale 777 Pinot Noir
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.

2018 Folktale Late Harvest Gewürztraminer
Delicately layered and expertly balanced, this isn’t the viscous sugar bomb you might be accustomed to. This dessert wine is beautiful with rich, floral notes of elderflower and bright, tropical flavors of guava, juxtaposed with warm flavors of cinnamon and vanilla. Chewy notes of beeswax and caramel date are revealed in the long, slow finish.
