2006 Handley Cellars Holmes Ranch Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 715 cases, $40. 46% Romani Vineyard, 37% RSM Vineyard, 15% Handley Estate and 2% other. 100% de-stemmed, lightly crushed, 40% whole berries, lightly pressed, inoculated fermentations, aged 9 months in 39% new French oak barrels. · Charming aromas of cherries, berries and tea leaves. Moderately rich fresh berry flavors with a hint of mocha and clove, soft tannins and a refreshingly dry finish. A perfect wine for the dinner table. Reviewed June 5, 2009
