2017 Creekside Red

The 2017 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 Sirah, Sangiovese, or Cabernet Sauvignon because it is too cold for those vines to survive, so we source them from California.

Every year, the winemaking team tastes each lot of red wine and creates the most flavorful blend to create our Creekside Red. The lots were fermented and aged separately until just prior to bottling in August of 2018. 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 notes of chocolate-covered blueberries, with hints of leather, tobacco, and vanilla on the nose. On the palate, notes of Bing cherries with a smoky finish. A perfect accompaniment to any of our wonderful pizzas or all by itself!
