Rust Wine Co. Solus 2020

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Golden Mile Bench's South Rock Vineyard, Solus 2020 blends 38% Merlot, 32% Zinfandel, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 1% Gewürztraminer from the site's gravelled clay—this aged 18 months in French and American oak (61% new). As one would expect from the blend and super thick, overweighted glass bottle, this is not a shy wine, but rather a compact and chewy red, with medicinal edged black cherry, blackberry compote, and toasted cedar filling the full palate, wrought with sticky tannins, taking this to a bitter cocoa finish. It certainly needs some bigger roast beef/lamb/root veg to match at this point.Tasted: 18 May 2023Tasted by: Prices:
