Antica Terra Coriolis Pinot Noir 2014

Ratings on Delectable

Isaac Pirolo

In physics, the Coriolis force is an inertial force that acts on objects that are in motion relative to a rotating reference frame. In wine, Coriolis is a Willamette Valley Pinot Noir from Maggie Harrison's Antica Terra. The back label says "The mathematical expression for the Coriolis force appeared in an 1835 paper by French scientist Gaspard-Gustave Coriolis, in connection with the theory of water wheels. This wine takes the name Coriolis and with it the symbol of the water wheel: a manifestation of the conversion of free-flowing energy into useful forms of power. One hundred percent of the profits from the sale of this wine are donated to charity. In this way this wine supports the conversion of ideas into powerful actions that serve a greater good." One of those charities is Phil Knight's Cancer Challenge, so I guess you could say this wine is helping to cure cancer. If that's not reason enough to drink it, the wine is drop dead gorgeous. Opens with wild fruit purity of cherry, red currant and even then pushes towards raspberry, which leads into a salty minerality that plays really well off its subtle floral and citrus tones. While it's loaded with tart fruit and even citrus acidity, it finishes with length and exceptional silkiness, a testament to its balance. Beautiful.
