We have them!


Wine Spectator rates Washington's 2006 vintage as an "A-" and says: "Even jaded winemakers had little to complain about when it comes to assessing the 2006 vintage in Washington. The weather was nearly ideal."

Highly Scored Washington Reds

Gorman "The Bully" 06
Wine Spectator 93 Points

Avalon WineWine Spectator LOVES Gorman. One of three Washington "Up and Coming" wineries chosen for the 2008 CA Wine Experience.

Wine Spectator says: "This is dense and chewy up front, but there's a silkiness and sweetness to the berry and currant fruit that wells up behind it, finishing with depth and silk, with a nice creamy note. Best after 2010. 450 cases made. - HS."

Buty Cabernet Sauvignon-Syrah
Columbia Rediviva 05
Wine Spectator 93 Points

Avalon Wine100% Champoux Vineyard fruit!

Wine Spectator says: "Polished, generous and beautifully focused to display its violet-tinged currant and blackberry flavors, lingering on the open-textured finish. This shows more of the texture and flavor profile of Cabernet than Syrah, and it works elegantly. Best from 2010 through 2015. 340 cases made. - HS"

Ciel Du Cheval Red
Wine Spectator 93 Points

Avalon Wine Wine Spectator says: "Supple, round and generous, delivering a tempting mouthful of ripe cherry, mulberry, mint and exotic spice flavors that mingle enticingly on the silky finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2016. 415 cases made. - HS."

Fielding Hills
Cabernet Sauvignon Wahluke Slope 06

Wine Spectator 93 Points and

The nose is playful, with red berries, black cherry candy and caramel. Then POW!

Wine Spectator says: "Smooth and silky, offering a plush mouthful of lavender-accented black currant, cherry and espresso flavors that weave together through the long, vibrant finish. Has great stature and a welcoming feel. Drink now through 2016. 216 cases made. - HS"

Fielding Hills
Merlot Wahluke Slope 06

Wine Spectator 93 Points

Merlot skeptics look out: Fielding Hills makes a real head-turner of a Merlot.

Wine Spectator says: "Ripe, round and generous, this sumptuous wine offers layers of gorgeous blackberry and black cherry flavors, hinting at toast and spice on the creamy-textured finish. Drink now through 2014. 163 cases made. - HS"
