Wine AdvocateA supple, lighter style of wine in 2010, the 2010 L'Arrosee is stylish and medium to full-bodied, with seductive notes of black cherries, cranberries and mulberries. Some oak is present, but this is a mid-weight, savory, broad and disarming wine to drink over the next 10-15 years.

Wine SpectatorA very toasty but integrated style, with warm espresso and mocha leading the way for a really supple palate of black currant, plum sauce and cassis flavors. The toast holds a slight lead on the finish, leaving a slightly cedary dusting, but this is lengthy and dense enough to hold on while it melds in the cellar. Best from 2014 through 2024. 3,166 cases made.
