Sweet, ripe, and dense,” “roasted notes from the oak,” and “black fruit  jam” are some tasting-note descriptors about Saint Joseph found online  within a few seconds of searching. Interesting, considering that seventeenth-century monks in the region wrote about the wine from these same hills as being “fresh and delicate.” A few thousand years prior to that, Plutarch explained how the Romans added pine tar to beef up their Saint Joe they viewed as too subtle (the Roman-day equivalent of new oak?). Faury is resolutely on the fresh, delicate, and subtle side of Saint Joseph, and that’s just the way we like it. Spices and pepper  perfume the nose and the palate for a versatile, mid weight, traditionally styled Saint Joseph. The monks would be proud. –Chris Santini
