Bonny Doon

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. Our '08 Syrah "Le Pousseur" 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.

Wine Enthusiast

Sweet in cherry-berry fruit, this Syrah has more complex layers of smoked meats, earth, grilled mushrooms, tamari and sandalwood, brightened with crisp acidity. It's a fine, full-bodied wine for drinking now.

Score: 87. —Steve Heimoff, October 01, 2011.

Wine Spectator

An agreeable style that's spicy and peppery, firm without being bitter and overly tannic, with a core of dried berry flavors. Drink now through 2016.

Score: 87. —James Laube, December 15, 2011.
