Mission Briefing

Codename:

Ode to Dutch Bill

For the third successive vintage in a row, we are very pleased to be showing the delightfully approachable 2009 Dutch Bill Creek Russian River Valley Chardonnay.

With a fresh, bright nose and bright, fresh flavors on the palate, this wine delivers a delightful drinking experience - at a very budget-friendly price.

This is a food friendly wine that encompasses a range of flavors and aromas. There is an earthiness and a brightness that give the wine great balance.

Enjoy well-chilled, but for a smoother and more flavorful experience, allow the wine to warm just slightly in the glass before enjoying.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Medium golden hues with a heavy-looking and viscous surface.

Smell:

Clover honey and mixed citrus meld with acacia petals, dried apricot, candied walnut and berry bramble (without the berries).

Taste:

Citrus, lemon curd, hazelnut, apricot, nectarine and flinty minerals.

Finish:

Starts bold and then tails off slowly. Citrus persists at the edges of the palate for a very long time. At the very end, flint and white pepper persist the longest.

Pairing:

Barbequed salmon with a lemon mignonette sauce.
