97 points Vinous: "Highly expressive, spice-accented red and blue fruit preserve, sassafras, earth and lavender scents show wonderful clarity and mineral lift. Sweet and energetic on the palate, offering intense black raspberry, boysenberry and cherry cola flavors that deepen steadily with air while maintaining vivacity. This weighty yet nervy Pinot finishes with powerful, spicy thrust and silky, slowly building tannins that fold smoothly into the wine's strikingly persistent fruit and floral notes. This one-off bottling is made from all of the vineyards from which the winery draws Pinot Noir, with a third of the fruit coming from Ribbon Ridge."

This is the 4th bottling of a Pinot Noir that we have designated as an “Anniversary” bottling. It is really only with this one and the one before it, the 15th Anniversary bottling from the 2014 vintage, that the anniversaries have lined up with an actual 5 year span as opposed to a random if significant date that we were memorializing. Over the years as we have produced these types of unique, stand-alone bottlings our perspective on doing them has become more clear, much in the way the nature of the winery began coming into focus in 2012.

We produced more individual bottlings of Pinot Noir than any winery in America. Even in Burgundy where comparatively small domaines can have a large number of bottlings based upon their family holdings of vineyards there are only a few places that could claim as many designated Pinot Noir bottlings as Patricia Green Cellars. We are fortunate to work with a large cache of some of the best vineyards in Oregon. Fine tuning what we get and allowing the place to be absolutely paramount in what style of Pinot Noir comes to be affords us the opportunity to create this large set of easily differentiable Pinot Noirs. Not every vineyard or even every section of vineyard is capable of reaching levels high enough for the wine to be considered a stand alone bottling. That is why it is unique that we carry a stable of vineyards that any one of which would be most winery’s best vineyard.

As we have added vineyards over the years it has allowed us to really let loose with the every-so-often Anniversary Blend. The amount of options we now have to select from is staggering so it becomes a great opportunity to figure out how to showcase the best of the places with which we work while still allowing the normal bottlings from those vineyards and blocks to shine as they normally would. The 2019 20th Anniversary Pinot Noir is a great assemblage from seven of our top vineyards and we think it puts some of the best that the vintage and Patricia Green Cellars has to offer together in a way that makes not just an Anniversary wine but a truly special wine that gets to the heart of what this winery is built upon both from the perspective of the sites we work with and the people that work here that had some involvement in fruit turning into wine and the wine turning into this specific amazing bottling.

Our Wine Advice

Life's too short to drink bad wine.

We taste as much or more Oregon wine in a given year than anyone on the planet. We look for the needles in the haystacks, the wines you won't find in your local wine store. Wineries have long sought our help to sell their most limited, unique bottlings.

We are picky. We like to sell wines that we like to drink. We refer to taste the wines sell over several days; we want to know how a wine will evolve, how it pairs with food. We want to know if it truly belongs in your cellar, in your glass, and we want to provide you with guidance on how and when it'll be its best.

Our goal is to describe wines in ways that you can actually relate to. We battle against overly flowery tasting notes. You know the kind. The ones that mention things that no one has ever smelled or tasted. They're mostly B.S. and they perpetuate snobbery that we don't like.

We give you the unfiltered truth about a wine.We believe wine isn't one-size-fits-all. We get to know your tastes and preferences so that we can recommend the right wines for you.

Testimonials

★★★★★

Avalon is a gem. The wine selection is both excellent and expertly curated. Better yet, Marcus and Andy invest the time to get to know their customers personally. So their recommendations fit you like a well-tailored suit (just more reasonably priced!).

Marcus and Andy's knowledge of the wines, wineries and winemakers of the area is encyclopedic and, in my experience, second to none. They have a comprehensive understanding of the inner workings of the industry and a knack for recommending wines that are 'in my wheelhouse,' but also the insight to direct me toward new discoveries. I wholeheartedly recommend them to both those in the know and those who would
like to be.

Andy and Marcus only sell wines they would drink themselves, they sell them at reasonable prices, and they take exceptionally good care of their customers. Ethics, value, service…the reasons we buy all our wine from Avalon.

These guys do an outstanding job of sourcing great wines at terrific prices. Their reviews are fun to read and quite on point without all of the nonsense. Whose ever tasted squirrel dung or asphalt anyway? Get on their email list and savor the experience; then tell a friend. That's how I became a dedicated customer of Avalon Wine.
