Rust Wine Co. Solus 2020

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaHefty, heavy bottle. Nearly equal parts merlot, zinfandel, and cabernet sauvignon, with a dollop of gewürztraminer for good measure, this shows macerated dark berries alongside dried herbs, graphite, and a litany of oak spices and dill after aging in 61% new French and American oak for 18 months. It's a big wine that feels like it's starting to come together, though the grippy tannins suggest this still needs another 4-5 years in the cellar to be at its best. A statement, to be sure.Tasted: 06 September 2023Tasted by: Prices:
