Boedecker Cellars Pinot Noir Athena Willamette Valley 2015

Athena! The Goddess of War, of Wisdom, of rockingly lusty Oregon pinot noir…?!?! Wait a minute, did I doze off in Ancient Greek history…that can’t be right. No matter… at OVER 60% OFF, who cares?

It’s FRIDAY!!! But of course, we’ve planned something planet-shaking to celebrate, you know how we roll!!! Been waiting to unleash this gorgeous bottle for weeks!! PINOT NOIR LOVERS, bargain-hunters, savvy case buyers, you are ALL covered with our undeniably irresistible hella-mega deal today (nearly 60% OFF!). INCONCEIVABLE!

$15. FIFTEEN DOLLARS! This is going to go quick, so I’ll keep it short…this stuff ROCKS! Ok, a bit longer… Boedecker Cellars is an uber-hip, downtown Portland, urban winery grabbing sexy, killer pinot grapes from select vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley, all within an hour or so from their winery. Stewart and Athena (the actual namesake for this wine) are both UC Davis grads turned winemakers who’ve forged their maester’s chain at many a fine winery over the decades. They fell in love…with each other, but more importantly… with PINOT (psssst… you get some yet? Go now while the rest are entranced in this love story)!

While I’m sure they agree on most things (as ALL married couples are wont to do), they just can’t agree on a preferred style of pinot noir! Stewart goes for a restrained, ethereal style, while Athena likes them fully loaded…dark fruit, luxuriously rich and densely packed with warm winter spices. Just. Like. THIS!!! Now, at a perfectly aged 7 years young, this wine has harmoniously integrated those dark, brooding characteristics into beautifully layered black cherry cola, with pomegranate molasses and spiced chai. This is soft, silkily textured pinot that perfectly balances its heady exuberance with the refinement of age. So very delicious you’ll polish off the bottle before sundown. Did we mention $15? Hope you got yours!

“Husband and wife team Stewart and Athena Boedecker couldn’t agree on what style of Pinot noir to make. She likes rich and muscular; he wants delicacy and refinement. So they make two Pinot noir blends, both outstanding and in decent quantities. They also cost less than many comparable Oregon wines.” – Wine Spectator

About The Producer

Stewart and Athena fell in love with Pinot noir while dating many, many years ago. They read, took courses, imbibed and interned until ultimately they founded Boedecker Cellars in 2003.

After 5 years at crafting wines at Oregon’s first shared use winery, they built their urban winery in the heart of industrial Northwest Portland – just a stone’s throw from downtown and less than an hour from their vineyards. Dedicated to the winemaking, when you visit Boedecker Cellars today you will likely encounter Stewart and Athena in the cellar tasting through barrels and tending their wines.
