Overview of the Wine
There are, every year, a selection of barrels that somehow don’t find harmony with the final compositions for Antica Terra or Lillian. A world away from sub-standard barrels that would be declassified, to be sold off in bulk or dumped down the drain, these barrels are often some of the most precious in the cellar. By segregating these barrels, it is ensured that the wine that gets bottled under the Antica Terra and Lillian names are, year after year, the very highest expression possible in any given vintage. 

Those unused barrels, full of shimmering potential, sit for a final blending session. The resultant wine lives under the name Coriolis. 

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. The symbol of the water wheel serves as symbol for 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.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Meaty, savory, and loaded with tons of blackberries, blueberries, coffee beans, white sage, and crushed granite rocks…this is made in the culty, hedonistic style – at a price that is simply unreal!

A selection of fruit from the White Hawk and Bien Naciedo vineyards of the Central California coast. 2019 was a year with far cooler growing conditions than typical of the region. This cooler weather resulted in an extended growing season with no pressures to pick and a very long harvest. The fruit was immaculate but yields were almost absurdly small, resulting in fruit with elevated levels of energy and concentration. These are wines of particular intensity, crystallinity and verve.

95+ Points - Ian Blackburn
