Wine Is Our Passion

Meet Alicia Whitney
Restauranteur Alicia Whitney – who leveraged her passion for food, wine and entertaining to create the fastest-growing wine bar in Southern California – collaborated with the famed Martin Ray Winery to create a debut collection of private label selections, aptly named Alicia. After years of curating a definitive selection of quintessentially California varietals to complement SeaLegs on the Beach’s award-winning menu, Alicia turned her attention to wine making and choose to leverage the extraordinary wine growing regions of the Russian River Valley, where excellent cool-climate fruit – defined by foggy marine influences – are produced. The result is a celebration of all things California and an invitation to experience the perfect balance between tangy, ripe fruit and bright, racy acidity.

Chardonnay

Wine Is Our Passion
Savor the richness of the Sonoma County with this debut private label wine from Alicia. This delicious chardonnay represents the best California has to offer. In homage to its Russian River heritage, Alicia chardonnay balances acidity with creamy texture and delivers a fresh fruit finish. Notes of vanilla-laced oak give way to ripe fruit flavors of apple and pear layered with honey and orange blossom. The result is a generously rich and buttery mouthfeel with well-honed edges certain to delight. The Alicia 2016 Russian River chardonnay is a fresh, crisp everyday drinker and bright companion to food. Try pairing it with light, delicate flavors, such as lightly steamed shellfish, raw or grilled fish, chicken, risotto with spring vegetables or creamy vegetable soups.

Pinot Noir

Wine Is Our Passion
Drink in the California sun with the silky Alicia 2016 Sonoma County pinot noir. This vibrant easy drinker carries the characteristic flavors of fresh-picked raspberry, blueberries and strawberries known for this region, while a definitive minerality and silky tannins deliver a hint of earthiness, bringing about a perfect balance. Its bright acidity lifts the palate, making this debut varietal a memorable ambassador for this private label. Toasty mocha flavors lend complexity and depth to the palate, plus the well-integrated oak provides structure and depth seldom experienced with a pinot noir. Its brightness, complexity and rich fruit character makes this wine the ideal pair for a wide variety of cuisine, from delicate poached salmon to rich braised duck to savory roasted pork.
