2014 Azur Rosé

Napa Valley Rosé Blend more

Melon and stone fruit with a slight herbal and seashell notes. Surprisingly Provencian for a dry styled napa rose.

Composed of 100% Syrah sourced from Napa Valley, the 2014 Azur Rosé is a stylish, salmon-hued sipper with lively aromas of ripe cantaloup, white peaches, Rainier cherries, and honeysuckle. I love what the acidity does, coating the palate evenly and beautifully, with minerally notes lending definition to the back palate. As it warms, silky texture comes to the fore, along with slightly fleshy texture, distinguishing this Napa pink from a typical Provence rosé after which the Azur was modeled.

First tasting of the day (10 a.m. w/ Camile) so curious how this purchase turns out. Fresh, structured and good delineation of flavor. Must have been a light toast on that 100% NFO.

Much dryer and complex Rose, very surprising. Good for the price.

At home after a bottle of Gallerie Naissance SB. Consistent with prior notes

Somewhere between a NZ Sauv Blanc and a Calif. Crisp grapefruit citrus but not the only flavor. Some NZ SB will dominate with this as the only flavor. Noticed a creaminess to the finish with this bottle.

Really nice wine, well made and differentiated from the crowd of SB you find out there

Very light with almost a cotton candy/carmel corn finish. Drank slightly chilled. Nice way to start off the night.

Party of 8... Drank this with slow braised pork belly served with a spiced 'peach conserve/satsuma balsamic vinegar/Vidal ice wine' reduction. Pairing of the rose suggested by Scott Simonson from Chez nous. Brilliant pairing. One of the most memorable courses ever. Here's to hoping I can duplicate the reduction!

Consistent with prior notes, each bottle may be getting better. One thing I noticed on this bottle was the strawberry/citrus was more pronounced mid palate. drank slightly closer to room temperature.

Summer is fading, time to finish up the great roses of the year...

at Meredith's graduation party, drank next to a great Provencal rose - Mas de Cadenet. Consistent with prior notes. Was fun to compare California fruit, made by a French winemaker, with Provencal rose

Consistent with prior note, Calif much more fruit forward. Crowd was split on which one they liked more - both were great

Not sure how to score it, I just don't drink many white wines. All I know is I liked, wifey liked it, and my sister in law liked it - went perfectly as a sipper before a summer eve salmon/steak-on-the-grill-dinner.

Dinner in Ocean City, Memorial Day with the family. Paired with a pesto chicken and orzo - probably not the best pairing, but everyone seemed happy...

Met Julien Fayard on a PNV Auction trip a couple years ago when he was working with Phillipe Melka. Great guy from Provence making great wine in California - this wine followed his Rose.

Popped and poured, definitely improved over an hour but doesn't seem to require a big decant, drank great right out of the bottle. Rich purple color. Nose has a little heat, dark red fruits.

I would describe the wine as "fresh", very fruit forward and young. Red and dark fruits, blackberry, tart blueberry. Medium/long finish. Very nice, great QPR

Great wine to bring in the Summer...with the family in Ocean City for Memorial Day. Met Julien Fayard on a PNV Auction trip a couple years ago when he was working with Phillipe Melka. Great guy from Provence making great wine in California.

The style is to make a Provençal style Rose with Cal. fruit. Medium to light coloring - coral/cantaloupe color. Palate is light/bright red fruit, strawberry, pomegranate, quince. Really crisp finish, good minerality.

Met Julien Fayard during NPV week, terrific guy, was working with Phillipe Melka at the time at Kristine Ashe....had to buy this and his Rose.

Somewhere between a NZ Sauv Blanc and a Calif. Nose is fresh, white flowers. Crisp and fresh. Citrus, peach, meyer lemon, quince. Slight sweetness on the finish...gorgeous fruits, still light.

Excellent summer wine...really well done

exactly the way I like Rose.....crisp,just a touch of fruit, and perfect with a mix of meats, cheeses and BBQ chicken and spicy sausage. Reminiscent of some of the more elegant French rose's I've tried and loved. Pale, almost peachy color. Impressed the crowd.

50+5+11+17+8 Crisp and light, great with swordfish, grilled chicken. Notes of tangerine and peach with hints of strawberry. Long finish that reveals a hint of melon after some time.
