Aldenalli Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2016
(Hear it? It’s angels singing…)
DAN KOSTA (yes, of Kosta Browne), and...wait for it...EMERIL LAGASSE. These two legends made a wine together. A TINY, miniscule, microscopic amount of brilliant, laser-focused, outrageously fine Sonoma Coast pinot noir. Inspired by Burgundy, and informed by Dan Kosta’s Sonoma winemaking legacy, this is a world-class, and incredibly hard to find bottle of brilliance that you need in your collection NOW. Goodness, where else would we even SEE this?? It’s...well…we’re just too stunned to ...ok breeeeeeathhhhee…
We’re BUSTIN’. Just wow. LASER-FOCUSED pinot fruit, from the fantastic 2016 vintage, crackling with plums and black cherry fruit, dancing spice notes, lightly oaked and packed with tastebud-stimulating freshness, this is just a thrill ride - a wine to put in the cellar (like you would a fine Burgundy) and enjoy for special occasions (here at Napa Headquarters that means NOW, damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead)!!
Just mind-blowing to have a little (emphasis on LITTLE) -- if you love getting your hands on rarities like this, we hope you’ve already dropped 6 in your cart and are on your way!! WOW!! Good luck!!!

About The Producer
AldenAlli is the culmination to 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 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.
