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.” 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon – Inspired by the ant and the cicada. On the label: Now accept the gift of the Fableist, which has been toiled and moiled over in an attempt to give both weary ants and shiftless cicadas peace of mind, and a belly full of warmth. Tasting Notes: Vibrant black currant, cedar and vanilla hit your tongue, as you’re warmed by the comforts blackberries and cherries. A strong finish wraps you in a fond embrace. 98% Cabernet Savignon, 1% Petit Verdot, 1% Merlot. Aged 9 months in 25% new American oak barrels.
