“This beauty will appeal to both 'Cult' level Sonoma Pinot Noir fans and connoisseurs of red Burgundy. It’s redolent of raspberry and candied orange peel perfume. Silky smooth and round on the palate, it’s lively as a crowd pleaser with no shortage of depth and complexity. Savory and sophisticated, with a gorgeous core of ripe cherry fruit backed by cola and spice components to balance it with the coastal Sonoma influence.” - California Wine Advisors (10/11/18)

“Graceful and charming, with wonderful plum and wilted rose scents, and a trim beam of lively cherry and raspberry offset by loamy earth and spice. Fine-grained tannins promise textural polish. Drink now through 2026.” - Wine Spectator (4/18) 

BACKGROUND
 AldenAlli is the culmination and celebration of two families’ deep history of food, wine and hospitality, manifested in a wine that speaks of place and tradition. There is a rich tradition of Pinot Noir in the Kosta and Lagasse families. Whether it be the Burgundy wines introduced to Dan Kosta at the young age of five, the nightly presence of Sonoma County Pinot Noir on the dinner table, or the abundant array of Pinot Noir at the restaurants of the Lagasse family, Pinot Noir has brought us together in so many ways. AldenAlli began as a convergence of friendship, family and culinary passions and along with winemaker, Shane Finley, their Pinot Noir tells that story.
