Wines For Your Weekend Enjoyment

Happy holiday weekend from your friends at Avalon,

Wow...it's almost July and another exciting month has passed, filled with inspiring wines for all tastes. We hope you have great wines lined up for the long 4th weekend and in case you need any inspiration or provisions for future weekends, here are a half dozen standouts from the month. Cheers to you, and thanks for your support! 

Guillen Family Esteban Pinot noir 2015

$22.45 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($24.95 regular) 

Positively outstanding and electrifying!

Do not miss this exquisite value in Willamette Valley Pinot noir. Striking the ideal balance between intellectually engaging and carefree refreshment, this satiny, polished Pinot exudes ripe summer cherry and Marionberry fruit, with evocative and beautifully integrated savory notes from the 100% whole cluster fermentation winemaker Jesus Guillen employs in all of his wines. Guillen, whose main gig is winemaker at White Rose, rocked us with his personal label. See below for more!

Owen Roe Yakima Red 2014

$24.98 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($27.75 regular) 

The Yak is back!  

Billowing with dark red berries, black cherries, and a beautiful bottom note of sweet black plum, it sings through the finish with cedar, spice, and caramel. Classic Yakima Red, this velvety smooth number is good to go at release and will age gracefully for 6 to 10 years. 51% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. 

Nicolas-Jay Red Vinyl Pinot noir 2015

$31.45 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($34.95 regular) 

Do not miss the show!

Like an opening band, this begins with catchy material and wastes no time playing the hits. There's some showing off to be done, a modicum of restraint to be respected, but you want to leave it all out there. And you, the audience, do not miss the show. Aromatically deep, dark and ultimately inviting, elements of sweet and fresh fruit, very multi spectrum, with shades of red, blue and black and really, the best of each.

Guillen Family Adrian Pinot noir 2014

$53.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($59.95 regular) 

A True Reserve Pinot!

Outstanding aging potential and plenty of immediate charm to boot. Multi-layered fruit, from red to blue to black, surges with energy and elegant power. The underlying structure and beguiling complexities of whole cluster fermentation are expertly woven into the fabric of this superb Pinot noir. Highly recommended -- a June Reserve Pinot Noir club selection.

Lobo Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

$22.45 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($24.95 regular) 

Old school Cab by the case! 

The best under $25 Washington Cabernet going. Opening with super yummy dark fruits, spring flowers and a pinch of black strap molasses, it really begins shining when the beautifully textural and velvety wine hits your palate, flowing with cassis, licorice, and black cherry. An absolute winner. 85% Cabernet and 5% each Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. 

Purple Hands Latchkey Vineyard Pinot noir 2015

$44.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($49.95 regular) 

94 points Wine Spectator, Highly Recommended

"Silky and harmonious, with an elegantly precise structure and black cherry, fresh violet and spice notes that glide expressively toward the long finish. Drink now through 2022." 

We're looking forward to helping you with an order. Have a great 4th!
