    Winemaker's Notes:

    Quite dark with vibrant purple highlights. Wild aromas of game, black licorice, blackberries and white pepper evoke the Northern Rhône cuvées of Cornas. Muscular tannins give way to spicy black fruits and resiny tar notes leading to a resonant mineral core. The ‘06 Syrah Le Pousseur is a big wine, yet light on its feet. Showing nuanced complexity, it is brilliantly adaptable when paired with leg of lamb, grilled chicken, or winter wild mushrooms prepared in a variety of ways. Even whole wild salmon roasted with wild fennel will triumph with the 2006 Syrah Le Pousseur.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This bottling, which is Randall Grahm’s hommage to the Northern Rhône, has varied over the vintages, but with this 2006, hits the mark as never before. Made with a splash of Grenache, it’s full-bodied, bone dry and compelling in the intricacy of flavors. The blackberries, black cherries, licorice, and raspberries have elements of roasted meats and wild mushrooms sautéed in butter, tamari and a few drops of balsamic, liberally dusted with black pepper. Unique and compelling, and should develop over the next six years.
