Williams Selyem Winery
A magnum of 2018 Westside Road Neighbors Pinot Noir (1.5L)
Another classic in the making, the Westside Road Neighbors is a must-have. A gorgeous nose of red fruits and red rose jump from the glass. Orange peel adds a wonderful refreshing lift to the aromatics while a touch of star anise adds depth; the oak is beautifully integrated. Broad at the entry, the wine showcases red fruits and minerals. Texturally, the wine is like velvet and saturates the palate. The tannins are refined, and subtlety drive the palate along.
Guests will also receive a private tour and tasting at Williams Selyem as well as immediate access to the mailing list.

2015 Rochioli West Block Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley Estate (1.5L)
Planted in 1969, this is our oldest pinot noir block. This vineyard continues its reputation of greatness and uniqueness of this wine beyond compare. Intense black cherries, vanilla and anise on the nose with rich cherry and vanilla flavors that are full and balanced by the resolved tannins and firm acidity. Yields were 2.0 tons per acre and nine barrels were bottled. 100% West Block Selection
2016 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
AldenAlli is the culmination of two families’ expertise in combining superior food, wine, and hospitality to create a sense of place and tradition. The place is Sonoma Coast, above the western most part of the United States, pushing the limits of viticulture where land meets the sea. The tradition is our love of Pinot Noir and the ongoing pursuit of the most elusive reward.
The creation of AldenAlli wine began with the convergence of friendship, families, and culinary passions. Both the Kosta and Lagasse families have a long history with one another and with Pinot Noir. Dan Kosta was introduced to Burgundy wines at the young age of five, and an abundant array of Pinot Noir in the Lagasse restaurants has long been a favorite with diners. The nightly presence of Sonoma Pinot Noir at their family dinner tables has been a standing tradition for years. AldenAlli Pinot Noir tells the story of these two families’ talent for combining world-class wine with great food.
