Such a rare and fascinating bottle. At 12 years old, tremendous complexity and the balance we perfect...I can't imagine that it could have been any better than this. With that said, I wouldn't worry at all to lay any more of these down for another few years (if only I had more of this). Apricot, almond, quince, granite, strawberry, rich backbone of minerality. Rather full bodied for a white...or medium bodied for a rosé. The tannic nature and incredibly long earthy finish resonate with power. Such a wildly good wine.

Fantastic wine from one of my favorite wine producers in the world. This was very complex and deep, but could have gone for several more years. Very expressive nose showing coffee, dark chocolate, black cherry and leather. The pallet is full and has a wonderful grip. The notes of dark cherry baking spice are are the forefront, with coffee and bitter chocolate on the mid. Long winding finish. I wish I had another bottle...

Such an awesome bottle to drink with sweet potato and mint curlurgioni and a lamb Raby. Fairly expressive nose showing red and purple fruit, tarragon, loam, and candies orange peel. The pallet was medium in weight and very expressive. It followed the nose in the notes, but with amplification (especially the red fruit). The finish is very long - over a minute and runs the gamut of all of the layers experienced throughout the taste. Outstanding bottle!

Solid wine and a pleasure to drink with a few more years in the tank. Decanted first 2 hours. Nose was a little shy, but what was there was very nice; dark purple and black fruit, with cassis, vanilla, and tarragon. The pallet was full and fairly round, yet with solid grip that lent nice texture showing the fruit in the forefront with a bit of meatiness and an undercurrent of acidity which kept things in balance. The finish was medium plus showing black fruit, vanilla and a small amount of heat.

My last bottle and as good as the first. Better with plenty of air and at room temperature. The nose was a little shy, yet with depth; orange peel, honey suckle, toasted almond, saline. The palett was very deep and complex with notes that follow the nose, but with the addition of marzipan, and a strong undercurrent of minerality. Plenty of acid carries the texture along with what I can only describe as a tannic grip. The finish is very long with almond, marzipan, and granite with vanilla arriving at the very end. Such an amazing wine. This bottle could have gone another 5 years without missing a beat.

Continues to be one of my favorite styles of wine. It is extremely versatile and also pairs with typically difficult foods. We enjoyed this bottle with a spread of burrata and heirloom caprese, various cheeses (puncient sheep, blue vein, truffles goat), ramp escaveche, hard chorizo, and castelvetrano olives. I can’t think of another wine that would work with such a diverse spread.

Expressive nose with orange zest, apricot, vanilla, saline, and metal. Firm tannins (for a whi...orange wine), heavy for a white and light for a red, the pallet follows the nose with a strong mineral vein. Very well balanced with plenty of acidity to carry it for many more years. The finish is medium plus, but is very expressive until the moment it fades.

The nose was somewhat expressive offering dark red fruit, black pepper, nutmeg, and wet leaves. The additional 5 or 6 years of rest (compared to the previous bottles) helped quite a bit, but the pallet was still a little out of balance. Round texture with very fine tannins. There was depth and complexity on the mid, but the finish showed rather sweet. Good fruit, just a little late with the harvest?

Lovely bottle of champagne. I haven’t had a decent sparkler since we moved back from across the pond and Easter seemed like the perfect occasion. Notes of buttered biscuits, saline, unripened peach, honey suckle, and a hint of lychee. The nose was quite expressive after a couple of hours open. The pallet was creamy with appropriate acid to balance. The finish was lingering and ever changing. Went perfectly with ramp risotto and a mushroom, ramp, and goat cheese tart.

Very fresh and bright. Pleasant enough and very good for a casual afternoon. The minerality and acidity were notable. I suppose this price point is about what should be expected for a decent CA Chardonnay, but I can’t help but think that it’s just slightly inflated. Good bottle in any case.

Surprisingly fresh and youthful. Lovely bottle with plenty of life, yet entering its sweet spot. Went very well with the duck breast on top of parsnip purée and broccoli/asparagus tips topped with a sour cherry gastrique. The nose was fairly expressive yet primary. The pallet was deeper and contained more secondary notes.

The wines of Creekside continue to impress. I would say this is at peak, but should maintain for several more years. What a testament to the structure and quality of Colorado wines. Nose full of blueberry, pipe tobacco, and cedar. Full bodied with resolved and elegant tannins, yet with pleasant grip. Vanilla joins the profile along with a hint of game. The finish is fairly long and sustains a rather high level of intensity. Was a perfect paring with the wood grilled lamb chops.

Vibrant and expressive nose showing very ripe pineapple, honey, lemon heads, and subtle backdrop of smoke and white flowers. Massive weight with bold extraction perfectly balanced with a clean line of acidity. The palette follows the nose without exception. The finish is very long (around 2 minutes) and is escorted with sweet lemon at the beginning then gives way to vanilla and honey with a note of salinity for the last 20 or 30 seconds. Exceptional bottle and I’m glad I have one more. This was very fresh and will evolve into something remarkably complex with another 10 years or so of rest.

Upon opening:
A little hate on the nose. Bright cherry and bramble on the pallet. Nice feminine texture with a decent finish showcasing vanilla (of all things)... 7-16-7-7 (88)

After a few hours:
The nose gained a very expressive note of savory herbatiousness. The pallet gained quite a bit of weight with syrupy cranberry and spice joining the bramble. The finish is about as long as before, but more powerful and complex.

Upon opening:
The nose is rather austere with tobacco, earth, and hints of cherry cola. The pallet is surprisingly fresh with notes black fruit, iron, and coffee. There is plenty of grip and the necessary vein of acidity. The finish is decently long with coffee and bitter chocolate in the forefront. More to come later...6-17-8-8 (89)

After a few hours open:
The bottle came alive. The nose has gained and is showing what was detected earlier, but much more vibrantly and with an added saline quality. The pallet has gained in complexity while maintaining the definition from earlier. The mouthfeel has evolved into a fairly mature feel with resolved yet present tannins and the acidity is still there for support. The finish has lengthened a bit am gained some tobacco and red cherry to accompany the still present coffe and dark chocolate.

Truly outstanding. We had it with seared scallops and lemon risotto.m and I could not have picked a better wine. Very expressive nose with white flower and pear over a foundation of sea breeze. The pallets was full yet nimble with the weight of stone fruit, candied orange, and glycerin lifted by a string undercurrent of mineralogy and acidity. Quite a long finish.

Let this breath and don’t drink too cold! Upon opening, it was good but a little one note. After an hour open it began to meet expectations. Herbs, green fruit, and wet stone. The palette was well balanced with plenty of minerality to carry it through to the long and complex finish. Waves of white flowers key lime send it off.

This continues to be such a fun and unique wine. It’s as if this wine was made to be a text book reference for Sangiovese and American Cab. The nose is quite expressive and just a little reductive giving Cherry Vanilla Coke, with dried leaves and some pencil lead. The pallet is surprisingly fresh for the age and follows the nose. The mouth feel is round and extracted with enough grip to carry fruit. Very nice finish that echos the nose with a surprise showing of cocoa nibs (as if the Sangiovese wanted to make sure that it’s presence is felt at the end). Fun wine. I’ll definitely buy more, but I will hold out for good vintages with several years of age.

Several more years have done this wine some good, taking the wine from something with potential to something special. Having said that, the best is still ahead for this wine. Also I will say that, if you are looking for old world purity and neutral treatments, you will be a little shocked. If, instead, you are open to an American style of winemaking then this is a treat.
Rather expressive nose showing blueberry, vanilla, nutmeg, graphite and some salinity to round it all out. Inky dense with an opulent feel on the pallet with a touch of heat, but with plenty of grip and everpresent tannins. Dense and concentrated with more of the spices evolving and playing with vanilla and a punch of smoked dark red fruit. The finish is powerful and sustained with a sense of what I can only truly describe by referencing a mix between cigar smoke and those chocolate covered açaí candies (intended to be taken in a 100% positive light). I have one more that I will try to keep for at least another 5 years.

This wine continues to amaze me. Still drinking very fresh, yet a couple more years of rest brought on some additional complexity. Fairly expressive nose and a full, round palette. Powerful and lengthy finish. Vanilla, candied orange peel, and marzipan nicely balanced with granite and straw. Just a hint more acidity would have taken this from outstanding to exceptional.

Edit: I spoke too soon. After a little more air time, everything evolved. The acidity increased along with the minerality. A pleasant element of funk also arrived on the scene. This is something far superior to its younger self.

Managed to hold onto this for over 10 years and it was worth the wait. Complex and fun through and through with a rather expressive nose showing tobacco, pepper, charred meat, sweet black fruit and a little funk. Tannins have perfectly resolved leaving the pallet balanced with a perfect amount of grip. Long and evolving finish. Clear evidence of fantastic restraint in the wine making. Creak Side remains my favorite little known house.

A few hours of slow ox. Exactly what I hope for when I open a BdM! It’s an outstanding example from a producer that does very little “wine making” and is vintage driven yet always brings very high quality to market. Very expressive nose. Great harmony between tobacco, dry leaves, black cherry, bitter chocolate, and loamy soil with a note of spice that takes everything to another level. The palate is in a perfect spot with profound depth and concentration, yet elegance and brightness. The tannins have melted giving way to tertiary qualities, yet there is plenty of grip to give a perfect feel. Every player showed up in the spectacular finish with each taking a turn I. The spot light and then continuing to support the rest as the finish lingers for well over a minute. Still has a few years left in the tank before I would expect even the slightest decline.

First day: Slow ox for 5 hours. The nose is austere, but I wouldn’t call it shy. Showing mocha, sweet pipe tobacco, and bright cherry. The pallet is punchy and smooth with a bit of cola towards the end. Decent finish that builds on coffee and tobacco until it ends rather sweetly with cherry Jolly Rancher. This bottle was more fruitforward than what I’m used to with BdM, but there is plenty of character and complexity. I’d say that this is in its window, but I don’t think it has the structure to go much longer.

Second day: WOW! I definitely didn’t give enough time on day 1. On day two, EVERYTHING improved and is in perfect harmony. The unruly fruitiness has faded giving way to the savory and earthy notes. I feel like a fool for my assessment on day 1 as I would now say that this has some bones to go for several more years and is still not in its prime.

Drank from a 375ml as part of a 2012 BdM tasting - 3 hours of slo-ox. Wow. Very expressive nose with deep, concentrated black purple fruit with a backing of garrigue, spices, vanilla, and jus (is that weird?). The pallet is massive, yet elegant. Everything I want in a BDM...the typical characters are there (cherry, leather, tobacco), but there is a depth and minerality that I’ve only tasted in my favorite bottles. Supporting notes of bitter chocolate, cedar, and vanilla also need mention. The finish is long, and everything mentioned previously makes an appearance. I love this wine now and will revere it in 10 or more years as it’s nothing compared to what it will become. I can’t really be objective with my rating here...

Drank from a 375ml as part of a 2012 BdM tasting - 3 hours of slo-ox. Nice nose showing that hit first with a floral quality, and then leads into leather, jammy dark red fruit, wet leaves, and am over all fresh tone. The pallet is extremely fresh and round, yet there is a strong tannic backbone and fun complexity. Loads of the fresh, yet deep, red fruit hit first, followed by cocoa nips with element of pine sap. The finish lingers a bit with tobacco and vanilla rounding out the juicy black cherry top note. Very good now, and will probably be outstanding with some age (95+).

Drank from a 375ml as part of a 2012 BdM tasting - 3 hours of slo-ox. Not overly expressive nose. Mushroom and roasted meat is much more prevalent than the typical cherry and tobacco that resides in the background. The pallet is still rather tight, but the potential is clear. The acidity will give it plenty of life for the tannins to resolve an give way to more secondary notes. The finish is fairly long with bright cherry as the star that is both seeet and tart, and there’s an element or red licorice or lollipop accompanied by tobacco that comes through at the end. It’s a 90 now but probably a 94 or 95 in 10 or 15 years

Surprisingly ready to drink (given the age). The nose is complex, but just a little shy. Tobacco, red meat, cherry, and menthol. The palette is OUTSTANDING. Fulbodied but also with a vein of subtle verve. Very expressive with resolved tannins, and appropriate concentration. Smokey dark red fruit, chocolate, tobacco, and hints of red meat. The finish is long and powerful. Such a wonderful bottle. A shame it’s my last, as it would continue to improve for at least 5 more years.

Nice bottle with a good balance of fruit and minerality. We enjoyed this on its own before we went out, but it would have gone very well with food. While many of the wines from this region tend to be rather austere and mineral driven (sometimes to an extreme), I enjoyed that the minerality was a supporting feature of this wine rather than the primary feature. Fairly expressive nose: smokey, melon, white flowers, grass, and lemon curd. Full bodied with a buttery texture and green apple, vanilla, and a bit of flint on the palette. Good acidity to balance the fruit and decent length on the finish.

Pretty good. A little quirky. Its a medium bodied wine, but seems like it has asperations to be full bodied. Menthol, red meat, and sweet pepper on the decently expressive nose. The pallet starts off a little shy with red meat coming through the most. After a few seconds, it takes on an old world quality with floral and brambely qualities in the forefront with red fruit to balance. The finish is medium plus with cocoa nibs coming out of nowhere to finish it off.

A superb example of northern Italian still white made in a modern style. The terroir of the Franciacorta comes though in the minerality and backbone of this age worthy white. The oak treatment give a buttery and vanilla laden edge to balance out the profile. Full and deep, with pineapple, wildflower, wet granite and a hint of vanilla on the nose. Pollen, honey, vanilla, mango, pinapple, butter and salinity on the deeply complex palette. Round and opulent feel with a clean acidity. Granite and vanilla escort the long finish. Franciacorta remains the most under valued Italian region that I am aware of. So. Good.

Powerful and serious wine with its best moments still ahead (although drinking very well right now). Very expressive nose that is in an in between stage giving a pronounced tar, black cherry, and chambord with the slightest hint of secondary notes emerging. Juicy and round on the palette that mirrors the palette with the addition of vanilla and bringing the black cherry to the forefront. The tannins are in transistion which gives and cool texture. Cherry and tar lead the way on the long finish with coffee making an appearance in the last moments.

At peak or just beyond. Decanted for a little over an hour (and it needed it). Decently expressive nose with cigar box, dusty black fruit and tar.

Far and away the best PG I’ve ever had. The PGs that I’ve had we’re light and crisp, but often without much depth or character. This is a far cry from what I have every experienced with PG in the past. In fact, I suspect that if PG is your is your go to grape, this wine might not be for you. It’s a dark pinkish amber in color. The nose is a wonderful mix of strawberry, cranberry, apricot, and toasted almond. The palette is fresh yet extremely full for a white. Ripe strawberry comes through on the palette along with a touch of honey and almond balanced perfectly with a mineral laden acidity. The almost chewy and tannic mid give way to very dry apricot-almond- honey that lasts for nearly a minute. Opened my eyes to entirely new PInot Grigio possibilities. Fantastic!

Outstanding Pinot! This is a rare example of a CA Pinot (RRV none the less) made with traditional styling - extremely expressive, feminine in nature, with brambly spice, and earthy elements. The nose jumps out of the glass. Some subtle chocolate and cinnamon notes come through on the mid. The finish is very long, accented by tart, loamy fruit. Outstandning! Wish I had more.

Truly outstanding bottle! I can not imagine this wine being any better at any point - past or future. Slate, deep, dark bery fruit, graphite, tar, cigar box, and menthol. The nose is very expressive and mature with fully evolved tertiary notes. The pallet comes through as strong as the nose. Full bodied, yet velvety and plush. Chocolate comes through on the mid to join the profile previously described. The finish goes on for almost a minute.

A year later: still fresh and crisp. Citrus, mango, and VERY expressive limestone. It seems to have opened up a little. Just enough for me to realize that it is still young rather than simply high pitched. The palette shows promise of softening and developing depth. The finish shows more potential as well. I will wait as long as possible on the last bottle.
