Master Sommelier Alpana Singh tastes the 2016 Azur Rosé and shares her thoughts in this video. Transcription and tasting notes below.
Hi, I’m Master Sommelier Alpana Singh and I am your featured Taylored Wines Sommelier for the month of June.
The winery that I’ve chosen to work with is a super fantastic boutique winery from Napa Valley by the name of Azur. It comes to us from a husband and wife team, Julien and Elan Fayard.
This is the 2016 Azur Rosé and if you can’t get to the south of France, well then how about the south of France comes to you. This is a Syrah-based style and it’s a quintessential style of wine that you want for summer.
It pairs well with anything that you would enjoy at a backyard barbecue. It’s light, it’s refreshing, it’s easy to drink so we are thinking barbecue, we’re thinking pasta, we’re thinking cold salads, just things that you enjoy during those warm summer months.
