    Winemaker's Notes:

    Brilliant deep garnet with rose highlights and a bewitching perfume of ripe black cherry, plum, and anise, plus an earthiness that's evocative of the Northern Rhône cuvées of Cornas. Supple tannins yield to bright, brambly berries, black cherry, red currant, plum, and licorice. Silky and nuanced, with a juicy core that balances the fruit and earth.

    The "Le Pousseur" Syrah is named for an alchemist and trickster, but is withal an incredibly accessible wine, great by the glass but also a felicitous partner to all manner of roasted meats, poultry, game, wild mushrooms, and aged cheeses. Made of 100% Syrah.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very tight, with a gravely, crushed rock core of dried berry, dried herb, cedar and spice. Firm on the finish, showing drying, mineral-laced tannins. Best from 2013 through 2020.
