Wine of the Week: 2010 Villa San-Juliette ‘Fat Monk’ Pinot NoirBy Korea Herald
Published : June 1, 2012 - 18:21
I first tasted this wine when an astute friend brought it to dinner months ago. She’d scooped up the last few bottles at Surfas but kept an eye out and when they restocked, she picked up half a dozen bottles for me. Now it seems to be around at a few more places.
The California appellation means the grapes could come from anywhere in the state, bringing the art of the blend into play. The result is a smooth Pinot tasting of cherries, plums and just enough earth to keep it interesting.
Rustic but gentle, it goes down very easy, the perfect wine for a burger, a roast chicken or a plate of roasted vegetables drizzled with olive oil. “Vinted and bottled” at Villa San-Juliette Winery just north of Paso Robles, Calif.
● Region: California
