WineDiva's Review

Plush, harmonious, satisfying.
While Rust Wine Co. is located on Golden Mile Drive, and is one of the handful of wineries allowed to use the designation Golden Mile sub-GI, they make four single vineyard Syrahs, aged 10 months in French oak (20% new), which are all unique and colour coded to site along with a matching label and wax dip.

I tasted all four side-by-side upon opening and again 45 hours later, I felt they needed time to open.
This version comes from the sandy clay loam with limestone and granite rock soils of the hot and semi-arid Similkameen Valley from vines planted at 420 MASL in 2002.
Of the four, this is the most harmonious.
Sweet fruit and a powerful character, it delivers black raspberry, dried roses, cola and a hint of apricots. It has suppleness on the tongue with expressive wild berry flavours woven with tobacco dust and fine white pepper to start then evolves into Christmas cake, hay and dried fruits. Woven and satisfying it also oxidized the quickest of the four over the time after first opening.
