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

87 View from the Cellar The 2021 Rosa de Arrocal is composed entirely from tempranillo. It was given twelve hours of skin contact prior to racking off for fermentation and is a beautiful watermelon red in color. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a mix of rhubarb, cherries, orange peel, salty soil tones and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is bright, medium-full and succulent,with a good core, sound framing acids and lovely bounce on the fairly long backend. Quite tastyand very good with food. 2022-2025.

88 View from the Cellar The 2022 Rosa de Arrocal is composed entirely from tempranillo. It is fairly deep ruby in color for a Rosado and delivers a complex and quite vinous nose of cherries, sumac, blood orange, a nice touch of soil and atopnote of rose petals. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a fine core, good focus and grip and a long, complex and vinous finish. This really drinks more like a light red wine than it does a typical Rosado and would work really well at the table on warm summer evenings. 2023-2028.
