Review:

Territorial is one of those "Insider" wineries that is now beginning to receive regional and even national recognition. The wines are all made from the winery's own estate vineyards, and this Pinot, their basic blend, gives a lot of bang for the buck.

Previous vintage, 2008 notes:

The 2008 has big aromas of red cherry, hints of raspberry with dried flowers, sweet vanilla toast and roasted coffee. Juicy red and black cherry fruit, with herbal spice. You’d be hard pressed to find a wine with better balance for the value! The Territorial is a great food wine that would pair well with grilled pork or salmon or farfalle with roasted vegetables.

Territorial's Willamette Valley Pinot noir 07 is proof that great Pinot still exists for under $20. 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.

James Beard Award-winning restaurant Marche, in Eugene, Oregon, serves this wine by the glass--and they have a lot of Oregon Pinot to choose from!

This youthfully exuberant pinot arouses the senses with aromas of earth, spice and sweet cherry followed by an integrated mid-palate showing classic pinot flavors of cherry, briar, toast and cola. Finishes with great length and structure. - the winery
