Alvaro Palacios Finca Dofi Priorat 2014

External Review:

Opaque ruby. Ripe red berries and cherry-cola on the highly perfumed mineral, floral nose. Broad and deep but lively, offering sweet raspberry, lavender pastille and mineral flavors lifted by peppery spices. Tightly focused on the silky finish, which manages to be vibrant and rich at the same time.  Tannins come up with air but this is all about fruit and flowers right now. This wine is virtually all garnacha.

The 2011 Finca Dofi is a blend of 95% Garnacha and 5% Syrah. It has another exuberant bouquet, like the older sister of the 2011 Gallotrops, endowed with beautifully defined floral aromas. There are hints of broom and fennel infusing the scintillating red fruit and a sorbet-like freshness. The palate is medium-bodied with a vibrant peppery entry, fanning across the mouth with succulent red currant and wild strawberry fruit. The acidity maintains superb balance, countering the 14.8% alcohol with ease. There is a firm underlying structure that is only exposed towards the long persistent, mineral-rich finish. Wonderful. Drink 2016–2030+.
