Tasting Notes from Master Sommelier, “The 2017 Azur Napa Valley Proprietary Blend unfurls on the nose with dark fruit balancing delicate earthiness. Muddled blackberries and juicy red currants lead the way, interwoven with fresh, fragrant lavender and a touch of dusty minerality. Hints of sweet vanilla add nuance, while fresh green herbs pique the senses with added intrigue. The palate explodes with concentrated black cherry and briary red berries. Mouthfilling flavors coat the tongue, followed by light, toasty oak that seamlessly integrates with a saline minerality. Satiny tannins provide a luxuriously smooth texture, while refreshing acidity keeps the palate lively and mouthwatering. The finish lingers long, leaving a lasting impression of pure Napa Valley brilliance. This gem is a testament to the winemaker’s skill and the exceptional quality of the fruit. It’s a wine that begs to be savored, offering a captivating journey through a symphony of aromas and flavors.” KEVIN VOGT 96 POINTS
