2019 vintage notes

92 points Wine Spectator: "Sleek and pretty, with multilayered cherry and pomegranate flavors that are laced with orange peel, clove and spice notes. Drink now through 2029."

Purple Hands rocks another vintage of their Willamette Valley blend, Lone Oak Ranch, sourced from excellent sites around the Valley. Deeply fruited purple and blue tones are joined by a fascinating guava note, plus brown spices and a hit of cherry candy through the finish. The yum factor is high here, so get to work!

2017 vintage notes

93 points Wine Spectator: "Well-built and lively, featuring cherry and blueberry flavors, laced with black tea and smoky spice notes that build tension toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2027."

Cody Wright has been in a wine cellar his whole life. He’s had big shoes to fill; he is the son of quite possibly the most famous Oregon winemaker. We think he’s doing an excellent job making a name for himself and creating his own voice in Oregon wine.

Purple Hands has enjoyed huge critical success with the 2014, 2015, AND 2016 vintages, including a placement in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of 2017 for his 2015 Latchkey Vineyard Pinot noir and smoking-hot 93 points for 2016 Lone Oak Ranch (which we featured before the score, which we’re quite good at doing if we do say so ourselves). We tasted through his line-up of 2017 Pinot noirs and they are superb, beginning with Lone Oak Ranch, Cody’s Willamette Valley blend.

A blend comprised of vineyards – Freedom Hill, Holstein, Kropf, Latchkey, Stoller – Lone Oak Ranch is ebullient with its mixed cherry and raspberry fruit accented by caramel and spice. It is drinking well right out of the gate, especially with a couple swirls of aeration.

2016 vintage notes

93 points Wine Spectator: "Elegantly spirited, with bright cherry and spice aromas and plushly complex raspberry and brown baking spice flavors that linger on the polished finish. Drink now through 2024."

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.
