Territorial Vineyards and Wine Company
Pairing Urban with Rural

by Alison Ruch


Territorial Pinot gris 06
Complex and inviting aromas of candied apple, pear, and slate that give way to bright and lively honeyed tropical citrus flavors of pineapple and lychee. Add the rich, viscous mouth feel and you have one of the finest examples of Oregon Pinot gris we've tasted.

Territorial Riesling 06
Vinified in the traditional style, this off-dry Riesling opens with gorgeous aromas of dried flower, spice honey and candied apricot. Luxurious and full in the mouth, but with the acidity to balance nearly 3% residual sugar.
Harvested from some of the oldest blocks in the Estate vineyard. With vine ages from 14 to 28 years, the wine shows the complexity and nuance found in mature plantings.

Territorial Pinot noir Rosé 06 $11.47/$12.75
The Territorial Rosé has an immediate room-filling aroma of grapefruit, tangerine and rose petal, followed by crisp fruit flavors and a pleasing, palate-cleansing acidity. Its fresh, floral scented fruit flavors and streak of fresh strawberry are intense, as are the spicy, caraway seed tinged herbal note in the main red raspberry and red cherry fruit flavors. This is the perfect wine with turkey- and the holidays are coming up soon.

Territorial "Stones Throw"
Pinot noir 06
By far Territorial's best Stones Throw Pinot noir, the 2006 immediately captivates you with dark violet and currant scents. Ripe and round red cherries whirl with loganberries on a silky ride. The finish stretches out, as scrumptious raspberries sail on with vanilla toast, cream, and dried thyme. Add incredible balance to the list of descriptors, and you have one of the best values in Oregon Pinot noir.

Territorial Pinot noir 07
Bright cherry pie with a dollop of raspberry jam, this super-juicy Pinot delivers incredible flavors for the value. Hints of milk chocolate, dried herbs, and earth add complexity to fresh red fruit on the finish.

"Capital T" Reserve 06
We finally figured out what the "T" stands for: Totally awesome. Only made in the best vintages, the Capital T gives meaning to the term "reserve wine."

Dark and spicy aromas of mixed berries and cinnamon hint at the gorgeous fruit about to fill your senses. Harmoniously layered black and red cherries, blueberries, blackberries and more sit sweetly on your palate before the huge finish begins to glide and pick up cedar and pie spice. Excellent levity and balance for such a big wine.
