A gorgeous smoky, savoury nose and palate with aromas of mouth-watering tart black cherry and spice. Supple and smooth, almost full-bodied. Terrific! Pair with grilled chicken or veal.

Pinot Noir food pairings: roasted pork loin, tourtière, prime rib, roasted turkey.

Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A very nice Pinot Noir with a blend of fruity, floral, and earthy characteristics. Nose leads with red cherry, raspberry, and strawberry, also showing violets and rhubarb, and finally earthy, mushroom, leather, briar, and beetroot notes. High acid, medium body, and softer tannins. Palate reflects the nose while bringing in cedar, cola, and cocoa notes. Stunning alongside pork, tortiere, and turkey dishes.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

@CreeksideWine Pale garnet colour with brick ruby reflections. Pronounced aromas of cherry cola, licorice, violets, earthy soil, mushrooms and touches of tobacco, compost and wooden furniture. Flavours feature sour cherries, raspberries, clay minerals and a stemmy cedar woodiness. Bone dry, high acidity, with a light body. Medium tannins and a finish with cranberry notes persisting. This is a fine pair for pork tenderloin with balsamic raspberry reduction. Tasted February 2018 - 87 points
Creekside Queenston Road Vineyard 2015 is a vibrant medium-bodied Pinot Noir from St. David's Bench in the Niagara Peninsula wine region. The Pinot Noir grapes for this Niagara red wine are grown in the winery's Queenstown Road Vineyard. Look for sour cherries, cranberry, cedar and cake spices on this zesty PN. Pair with roast chicken. - Community Wine Reviews
