Details

Finca Dofi from Alvaro Palacios is one of the defining wines from Priorat. The 2014 vintage has proved to be a great one. Drink this now or lay it down for another few years. Experts recommend drinking between now to 2031.

"The 2014 Finca Dofí is a blend of approximately 94% Garnacha and 6% Carinena from a plot in Gratallops called Finca Dofi. It feels terribly lively, with a silkiness and purity, terse but at the same time ripe. The oak is very integrated and there is no volatility many associate with Priorat, but the flavors are clearly reminiscent of the old vintages of Dofi but with a much more polished texture. Again the acidity gives it clout and depth, like claws clinging to you. It ends tasty and very mineral. This feels as good as the other-worldly 2013. A great vintage for Dofí. Elegance in a bottle." - Luis Guitiérrez, Wine Advocate, 95+ pts.

"Lurid ruby. An explosively perfumed, mineral-tinged bouquet displays fresh boysenberry, cherry, licorice pastille and sandalwood scents, and a suave spicecake nuance gains power with air. Stains the palate with sappy red and blue fruit, spicecake and candied rose flavors that show impressive clarity and back-end lift. Silky, slow-building tannins add gentle grip to the finish, which hangs on with superb, floral- and mineral-driven tenacity." - Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 94 pts.
