18 May Oregon Pinot Tasting
Sunday, May 21
1 to 4pm
At the Bar
Sunday’s tasting is all about Oregon! Sample two awesome Willamette Pinot Noirs and find out why Oregon is gaining worldwide renown for its Pinots! We’re especially excited to be sampling the Coriolis from Antica Terra, a unique and complex wine with a great story behind it.
2014 Soter Vineyards North Valley Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
On Sale $26.99
A vibrant wine with clarity and tension showing dried strawberries and hints of mushroom character. Medium-bodied, fine and focused. Delivers the Oregon pinot noir experience one expects. Drink or hold.

2014 Antica Terra Coriolis Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
On Sale $46.99
Coriolis is a side project of Antica Terra Winery, invented as a charitable pursuit by winemaker Maggie Harrison (whose 9 year stint at Sine Qua Non gained her fame). Profits from this label are donated to the Phil Knight Cancer Challenge. The wine is aromatic, perfumed, and gorgeous, with notes of spice, cedar, black fruit, dried cranberry, and tons of nuance. Until recently, this wine was only available in Oregon so we are thrilled to have it in our shop.
