More Vintages and Sizes of Arrosee:
Author: Robert Parker
For L'Arrosee, this vintage has taken an atypically long time to round into shape. It has always possessed considerable power as well as a muscular, concentrated style and hefty tannin. Beginning to shed its tannin, it reveals an intriguing dusty herb, black cherry, kirsch, and mineral-scented nose, with subtle vanillin from new oak in the background. There are medium-bodied, concentrated flavors with some firm tannin, but by and large this is a very accessible wine. It remains youthful, with only a hint of amber at the edge of its deep ruby/purple color. This will undoubtedly be one of L'Arrosee's longest lived wines since their 1961.

Tasted great the first day! Rich, calm, and flawless, with a strong cherry flavor. I was excited to taste this on day 2 to see if there was any more improvement (which i always check for), but...it remained consistent with Day 1. Excellent wine for amateurs as well as connoisseurs!
