We thoroughly enjoyed this wine! Pouring it into the glass the legs lingered along the sides and the delectable aromas included dark berry, earth, purple plum and cherry. On the palate, there were intense notes of cherries and vanilla spice. The finish was semi-dry and smooth with mild tannins and acidity.
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.
