Antica Terra is an 11 acre vineyard located on a rocky hillside in the Eola-Amity Hills of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The first vines were planted here in 1989 in a clearing within the oak savannah. Winemaker Maggie Harrison worked for nine wonderful and life-changing vintages at the iconic winery Sine Qua Non. In 2004, she started her own Syrah project in Santa Barbara called Lillian.

In 2005, Maggie was asked to offer her opinion about the qualities of the Antica Terra vineyards site. Twenty-six seconds after arriving among the oaks, fossils, and stunted vines, she found herself hunched beneath one of the trees, phone in hand, explaining to her husband that they would be moving to Oregon.

Coriolis offers high toned red and black berry scents are complemented by notes of cola, white pepper and cocoa nib. Silky and supple, offering spicy black raspberry, cherry and strawberry flavors that open up slowly with air. Finishes with silky, harmonious tannins and excellent persistence.
