2015 Creekside Red

The 2015 Creekside Red is our best-selling red wine at Chankaska and it’s easy to see why. We combine the best of California and Minnesota to make an easy to drink, everyday Red Wine. As you know, we can’t grow Petite Syrah because it is too cold for those vines to survive so, we source them from California.

I go to the Napa Valley every year to source the best fruit for the blend. The 2015 Creekside Red is a blend of Sangiovese, Petite Syrah, Marquette, Frontenac, and St. Croix. A true kitchen sink blend! The lots were fermented and aged separately until just prior to bottling in September of 2016. The lots were blended and filtered before going into the bottle. It is a wine that tastes great right out of the bottle but will continue to age for another 3 to 5 years.

This rich wine shows obvious notes of dark fruit with subtle smokiness. On the tongue, cherries, rhubarb and a sweet cigar. A perfect accompany to any of our wonderful pizzas or all by itself!
