Letter from Carl
This upcoming March shipment officially marks Westwood’s 25th year of making wine and our 5th release with world-class winemakers Philippe Melka and Maayan Koschitzky!
Truly great wines are born in the vineyard. Over the years, we’ve made it our business to find incredible growers and vineyards in key appellations throughout Napa and Sonoma. Every vintage, a story is told of these chosen vineyards through the medium of wine. We hope our wines reflect the characters of every person and every vineyard site that had a hand in creating the Westwood family of wines.
In this special shipment, we are showcasing the diversity of our winemaking portfolio and the range of wine in our collection; 2021 Sangiacomo Chardonnay, 2019 Westwood Legend, and 2017 Twenty-One Red Blend.
The efforts over the past decade that we’ve made to become an Organic and Biodynamic certified winery, along with the addition of winemaker Philippe Melka and the Atelier Melka winemaking team, have brought our wines to new heights, and we’re elated to share these new releases with you!
As an allocation member, the following wines will be available to you in this current release:
2021 Westwood Chardonnay
Sangiacomo Roberts Road Vineyard
New Release | 800 Cases Produced
The 2021 Westwood Sangiacomo Roberts Road Vineyard Chardonnay is simply dazzling. With an inviting nose of honeycomb, baked quince, candied peaches, lilac, and roasted hazelnuts with accents of dried hay, stone, pastry crust, baked apples, and a classy framing of new oak spices. The palate has a lip-smacking intensity with succulent fruit and delivers mouthwatering dryness on the finish. The zesty, enlivened finish is phenomenal. Enjoy Now or Cellar Until 2031
2019 Westwood Legend Proprietary Red
New Release | 1100 Cases Produced
Following three consecutive releases that received 96-97 points, 2019 marks the fourth annual release of this show-stopping Cabernet-driven proprietary red created by winemakers Philippe Melka and Maayan Koschitzsky. Dark ruby in color with obsequious fragrances of dark chocolate, black currant, cigar box, and Bing cherries. On the palate, firm age-worthy tannins are underscored by notes of rich berry flavors, with good natural acidity providing length and freshness. The power of Cabernet Sauvignon perfectly complements the expressions of the Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre in this compelling and hedonistic wine. Enjoy Now or Cellar Until 2031
2017 Westwood Twenty-One Red Blend
150 Cases Produced
The 2017 vintage marked the inaugural year of our Twenty-One Rhône red blend. Produced from Westwood Estate’s most exquisite blocks of Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Grenache, this wine showcases the hallmarks of the Annadel Gap Vineyard: windy, cool, and layered in fog. The wine shows opulent black cherries, lavender, white pepper, and baking spice. Rich, full-bodied, and concentrated, yet still light on its feet with balance and brightness on the palette and the signature Annadel Gap-lifted acidity and elegance on the finish. Enjoy Now or Cellar Until 2034
