Elegant, meaty and spicy. Best with a gentle decanting. Read more

Dark color. Great smell of earth and barrel. Good balance of earth, fruit, spice, and wood taste. Perfectly dry. Underwhelming on day 2. Read more

Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

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.
