Rosa de Arrocal 2018
89 (VM)
Score Publication Review Copy
89 Vinous Media Vivid orange-pink. Assertive raspberry, cherry and candied rose scents reveal a hint of smokiness. Shows good depth to the juicy red fruit flavors, which turn deeper and spicier with aeration. The floral note repeats on a nicely persistent finish that shows good clarity and tangy cut. Made via direct pressing and in all stainless steel.

89 Washington Wine Blog You have to admire the pretty, delicate red fruits that dance with minerals on the palate. Lithe and refreshing, enjoy in the short-term. Drink 2020-2023.

88 View from the Cellar The 2019 Rosa De Arrocal is composed entirely of tempranillo and is nicely ripe, coming in at thirteen percent in this vintage. The wine is a fairly dark Rose, with a vibrant cherry red color and delivers a pretty nose of tangerine, cherries, rose petals and a touch of soil tones. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and zesty, with a very good core of fruit, good framing acidity and lovely length and grip on the fairly complex finish. This has a nice vinous touch to it and would be lovely with little grilled lamb chops in the heat of a summer evening. 2021-2024
