Mission Briefing

Codename:

The Old Bill Stream

We always love wines from Dutch Bill Creek and today’s 2009 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir does not disappoint. This wine is dark, richly layered and complex on the palate, fragrant on the nose - all while being very pleasing on the wallet.

Winemaker Kevin Kelley, who also makes wines for Loico, Saliana and Melissa Kelley Winery, crafted today’s lovely and delicious Dutch Bill Pinot. We’ve been following Kevin’s work for nearly six years and must acknowledge his progression as a winemaker. With each successive vintage, Kevin and his wines seem to undergo a big evolution.

At today’s price, today’s wine is a highly recommended must-have.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Opaque with the look of an unfiltered cherry juice. At the edges, a line of fine ruby encircles the glass.

Smell:

Black cherry juice, plum, dried strawberry, sweet tobacco, dry summer redwood forest, bramble and a hint of dried fall leaves.

Taste:

Rich and delicious, with dark black cherry, blackberry, black tea leaf, dried strawberry, dried fig and a hint of tobacco.

Finish:

Very long and flavorful, this wine starts with dark fruit that gradually yields to tobacco and dried leaves.

Pairing:

Roasted duck breast in a dried cherry glaze. For a lovely vegetarian option, enjoy this wine with roasted red potatoes with fresh rosemary.
