A Possible Pour Wine Review: Tasting Roblar 2015 Stone Oven Red

Aged in oak for 18 months, the 2015 Stone Oven Red (purchased $25.00, 14.7% alc.) is a blend of 78% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 2% Mouvedre.  Pouring the wine into the glass, the color was a luscious dark red. The aromas initially detected were dark berry (blackberries), with a slight hint of spice. Tasting the wine, the flavors were dark cherry, plum and vanilla, and it filled the mouth. The finish was long, dry and satisfying. This was a well-balanced, food friendly, easy to drink wine.

Tasting the wine, the flavors were concentrated in the center of the mouth. The taste was smooth with mild tannins with a slightly acidic finish. The group agreed that it was a well-balanced wine, light to medium-bodied and easy to drink with or without food. We enjoyed this wine with cheese, crackers and parmesan-stuffed olives.
