Handley Cellars reserve Pinot Noir is sourced entirely from estate-grown organic-certified fruit and features the silky tannins and bright acidity for which Anderson Valley grapes are globally renowned.
The winery puts a strong emphasis on soil-stewardship, composing a variety of wines from the fruit of small, local growers, with their Estate Chardonnay, sparkling wines, and most of their reserve bottlings of Pinot Noir produced entirely from their own organic-certified fruit.
The extraordinary quality of Handley’s Estate fruit is the result of a commitment to healthy living soils, the singular microclimate of Anderson Valley, and the artful winemaking-legacy of the winery’s founder Mia Handley. These wines are able to showcase both strong varietal characteristics and unique regional attributes.
Handley’s signature Estate Vineyard Pinot features aromas of cherries and violets with loamy, toasty overtones. On the palate you’ll find rich flavors of ripe red fruit accented by hints of cinnamon. Silky tannins and firm acidity combine to produce a long, complex finish.
