This red Rhone blend is comprised of 45% Mourvedre, 45% Cinsault, 5% Counoise and 5% Syrah. The wine is light bodied yet complex. Bright fruit and acidity with soft tannin structure make this a very food friendly wine. Juicy berry fruit, smoke and pepper best describe this Rosso.
Our Petit Verdot remains a favorite with our customers due to its versatility with food. Expect red cherry, raspberry, and black pepper on the nose. The palate reveals bright acidity with red cherry, clove, cola and a hint of smoke. Our Petit Verdot is an excellent alternative to dishes often paired with white wines.
Grown at The Vinelands, Creekside’s vineyard in Palisade, Colorado, our Syrah’s deep, dark color foreshadows its velvety sensuality on the palate. Expect notes of blackberry, plum and olive, with black pepper lingering on the finish. Aged for 15 months in new French oak, our Syrah pairs nicely with pheasant, quail and pork tenderloin.
Petite Sirah also experienced winter cold weather damage limiting production. Both berry and stone fruit are present as well as some significant herbaceous notes. Chewy tannins, medium acidity and vibrant fruit make this a good candidate for aging. Barbeque, pot roast and beef stew would pair well.
This Merlot is bursting with black fruit. On the nose look for black cherry, plum, cassis, toffee and a hint of forest floor. Blackberry, black cherry, boysenberry, toasty oak, black tea, accompanied by medium tannins and acidity best describe the palate.
This 2017 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon could be our best yet! The terroir of the vineyard shines through in this vintage. Black currant, cedar, minerality, medium tannins and acidity all contribute to the balance of the wine as well as the impact of the new Seguin Moreau American oak barrels.
This Cabernet Franc was aged 24 months in 100% new Appalachian oak barrels, imparting intense, complex flavors. As the wine ages look for classic Cabernet Franc characteristics of leather, tobacco and spice. This is Franc, Colorado’s Cabernet.
Our 5th release of Robusto and we can’t be more excited. This vintage is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot & 3% Malbec.

Rich and powerful best describe this port. Experience caramel, hazelnut, hints of vanilla, coffee and chocolate on the nose and palate. This port was aged over 15 years in oak barrels and won't disappoint.
This Malbec is more reminiscent of the Cahors, France style Malbec. It offers mouth-watering acidity with medium tannins. The mouthfeel is balanced and smooth. Look for berry fruit, hints of vanilla and baking spices. It is a favorite with our customers and is making a name for itself within the Colorado wine industry.
Roussanne is a late ripening variety that produces powerful white wines. It features scents of peaches, pears, herbs and roasted nuts. On the palate expect lemon curd, peaches, and a rich, silky texture. Red wine only drinkers will enjoy this exotic, complex wine.
We are always excited by the Viognier our vineyard produces. It is still our #1 selling wine at Creekside Cellars. The nose is packed with apricot, mango and a hint of tangerine.
