You Cannot Be Serious! Sheridan's New Knockouts

Dear Washington wine fans,

I grew up playing a lot of tennis and to quote my childhood tennis idol, John McEnroe, "you cannot be serious!" 
That's the feeling at Avalon headquarters as we attempt to wrap our heads around the new Sheridan Syrah and Mystique. We've come to expect greatness but these, well, we're having a hard time believing such serious wines exist for this coin. We'd recommend them with abandon if they were at least $10 more per bottle. They are estate-grown and bottled, they are insanely tasty; moreover, they have no competition, having established themselves in a class of their own. 

Like McEnroe, we offer a few more opinions on the subject: Sheridan is one of the country's highest rated wineries, which includes ratings of up to 99 points (2014 Block 1 Cab, to be specific, from Wine Advocate). How many other wineries with that type of track record produce estate-grown wines in the low-$20s? Anyone...anyone? No.

Please do yourself a favor and get a mixed case or two. You will thank us, we promise!

Sheridan Vineyard Syrah 2015
$23.35 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($25.95 regular) 
An absolute knockout. A mere five barrels, this "Baby Singularity" (from the Singularity block -- you know, the Singularity that sells for $100/bottle), this animal is the alpha-Syrah within its class -- totally dominant not because of force but simply because it is the best. Awesome density and texture, red, black, and blue fruits melting together, leaving behind a heavenly suggestion of mixed berry pie. Only 120 cases made so it will not last long! - Marcus

Sheridan Vineyard Mystique 2016
$23.35 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($25.95 regular) 
Once again a fantastic bottle of wine that completely outclasses its peers. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and for the first time, 25% Cabernet Franc to go with Merlot. Creamy, red and black fruits abound, diving deep along a velvety slide, all framed by a mouthwatering savory freshness and the perfect spice compliment that'll keep you reaching for another pour. - Marcus

A huge thanks to Sheridan for delivering the real deal!
We're looking forward to helping you with an order. Thanks for your support!

Marcus and Andy
