2013 Boedecker Cellars Stewart Willamette Valley Oregon Pinot Noir

13.2% alc., 900 cases, $36, screwcap. Release March 2016. A blend from Carlton Hill, Cherry Grove, Finigan Hill, Hirschy, Shea and Stoller vineyards. Winemaker Stewart Boedecker’s favorite barrel selections. 25% whole cluster, native yeast fermentation, 18 months in French oak barrels with lees stirring (first 9 months in a mix of new, once and twice-filled and neutral barrels, last 9 months in neutral barrels). Bottle aged 4 to 6 months before release. · Light cherry red color in the glass. Inviting aromas of cherry, rose petal and woodland lead to a mid weight styled wine with impressive mid palate presence and finish. The core of cherry and ripe strawberry fruit flavors is accented with notes of interesting spices including cinnamon. The tannins are suave, the acidity is bright, and the overall impression is one of complete harmony. A masterful cuvée. Score: 93. Reviewed March 12, 2016 WINERY » ARTICLE »
