The fruit for this wine came from various Anderson Valley vineyards, some in the cooler, more coastal part of the valley (offering red fruit, citrus, and spiciness to the blend), and some from the warmer Boonville end (adding more blueberry, black cherry, and texture to the finished wine). As a result, the Handley 2009 Pinot Noir offers a wide variety of aromas and flavors with a complexity not often achieved. The aromas are reminiscent of ripe cherry, black cherry, orange peel, carob, Chinese five spice, with a fine layer of minerality. It is complemented on the palate with red plum, black cherry, cocoa, baking spices, a silk mid-palate texture, and a very long finish.
