Really not sure the Pichler family can do no wrong in my view.

Bit more fruit forward than I was expecting, but a very pleasant glass. Others got a bit of smoke, though I did not.

Needed about an hour to open up, but presented very well after that. What I expect from an Oregon Pinot.

Really nice bright fruit with a sensual backend. Very delighted with this - drank over several hours, improved throughout.

So very solid. Great wine to sip while getting ready for dinner. Bright fruit up front (maybe cherry?) with a very very slight black pepper at the back.

Probably kept too long (and I don't have good storage). Lighter than I expected. Good fruit, considering.

Popped and let sit for about an hour before drinking. Very bright fruit on the palate, a bit less complexity than I was looking for. Cherry initially, but also some black fruit that was very nice. Not exactly what I wanted for the night, but very drinkable, happy to have it.

Very happy with this - thought it was a great value. Initial burst of fruit, but enough backend complexity and a bit of light earth to make it a good wine across the palate.

On open, this scared me - had a bit more vinegar than I liked. However, with air, this had a very nice middle palate with great cherry on the backend. Not sure it was my absolute favorite, but highly enjoyed.

Enjoyable. Bit tamer than some cabs - may have mellowed. Winner among several different drinkers, so that's a plus as well. not a large amount of fruit, but a more complex mid and back palate than I'd normally expect.

Probably just past it's prime. Had some of the nice early fruit I'm used to, but was muted. Great back end however - stone was nicely evident.

2009 Boedecker Cellars Pinot Noir Stewart

Willamette Valley more

4/16/2013 - Tfols Likes this wine: 89 points

Initially this was a massive, massive up front hit of fruit, strawberry for me, "Wisconsin cherry" for my girlfriend. Really developed with air. The big fruit hit subsided into a nice cherry for both of us, with a bit of woodsy (very light), in the mid to back of the mouth. I'd say that it was a very slight bit hot (maybe needing a bit more time?), but was good to drink, and will be on my list of things to pick up in the future. I was a fan, and my gf who I am slowly converting to Pinots was a big fan.

Very pleasant - may have been helped along by the dinner we were having. Table all loved the nose, which had some very light floral notes, although with cherry. Taste was good, but I had trouble discerning individual flavors, until the end, when some light underbrush and meat flavors appeared.

Tasty, girlfriend thought it was "salty". I got light fruit, with some pepper going on. Liked it more as it opened. Color is nice, but very light.

I feel like this wine has the potential to be a great buy for the cost - however, this particularly bottle was quite "hot" alcohol wise. Aromas of straw, light fruit, stone. Mineral on the front, with some tantalizing flavors appearing.. and then getting overtaken by the alcohol. Tempted to buy another bottle or two and let them age for a year or two to test.

Great example of a basic oregon pinot. Light fruit, quiet cherry at the front, with a much more earthy backend. Very nice to drink. Was solid on the second day, as well.

This bottle has an incredibly bright berry component to it that makes me want to like it. Sweet, but not disturbingly so. However, the berry is surrounded by a metallic taste that just makes everything seem disjointed. Improved with a bit of air, toning down that taste, but still not great, just ok.
