Lonely Heart is Mark's epic Red Mountain Cabernet. Bold aromas of bramble, saddle leather, hints of cedar, and fresh cut hay. Black licorice, plums, cracked black pepper, grilled steak, clove, wet tobacco and black cherry. The palate has beautiful balance as layers of oak meld with polished textures and incredible length.

2014 vintage notes

93-95 points Wine Advocate: "An elegant, focused 2014 from this team, the 2014 Lonely Heart Cabernet Sauvignon offers lots of crisp black raspberry, cassis, violets and graphite in a fresh, full-bodied, nicely concentrated style."

Holy WOW. Stunningly pure Cabernet, this is clearly one of Washington State's flagship Cabernets. Incredible wine - as good as Washington gets. - M&A

2013 vintage notes

94-97 points Wine Advocate: "The star of the 2013s is without a doubt the 2013 Lonely Heart Cabernet Sauvignon! This is the top wine of the estate and it's the first wine that's put together in the cellar (the Dead Horse functions as a second wine) and in 2013 it's a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. Gorgeous on all counts, with full-bodied concentration, building tannin and lots of cassis, lead pencil shavings, violets and spring flower aromas and flavors, this thrilling wine will stand toe-to-toe with the greatest Cabernets coming out of Washington. As with all of this team's wines, it has an elegance and seamlessness that will allow it to impress on release, yet it will still benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring and keep for 25 years."

2012 vintage notes
94-96+ points Wine Advocate: "...the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Lonely Heart is a rich, structured and tannic effort that will demand cellaring. Coming from Red Mountain, and possessing fabulous aromatics of darker styled fruits, dried earth, mineral and liquid violets, this full-bodied beauty has fabulous purity of fruit, a stacked mid-palate and building tannin that comes through on the finish. Give it 4 to 5 years and drink through 2032."

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.
