2012 Territorial Pinot Noir & 2013 Rose of Pinot Noir

2014-04-12 18.02.39


Territorial, a local vineyard/tasting room, had some food trucks and live music last night, so we went with some friends and got a bottle of this. It was decent, a lower, darker, heavier pinot noir, a little cherry and almost tobacco, but not quite as good as the 2008 Meriwether Pinot Noir we had 2 days ago. Maybe too subtle for me at that time. I enjoyed the accompanying crepes almost as much as the pinot..

For kicks and giggle we had a bottle of this next, and it was very light. My buddy joked that it was watered down pinot noir, but I guess that’s what a noir rose tastes like? Pleasant and summery, but any body or substance was too evanescent to be tangible. The best part was the label.
