Finca Dofi Alvaro Palacios 96js 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

96 Points, James Suckling: “Subtle nose of dried rose petals, slate and hints of red cherries. Full body, a beautiful structure and a dense and harmonious texture. Single vineyard. So delicious now. Why wait?” 11/16. 95+ Points, Luiz Guittierez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Finca Dofí is a blend of approximately 94% Garnacha and 6% Cariñena from a plot in Gratallops called Finca Dofí. The destemmed and crushed grapes fermented in oak vats with natural yeasts followed by malolactic and 14 months aging in oak barrels. 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 Dofí 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. There are 20,100 bottles produced." Issue#227, 10/16 "The original Clos Dofi now called Finca Dofi. This is a single vineyard with an average vine age of 20 years. One of the first 5 great "clos" that catapulted the Priorat to fame. Everything is done by hand. Harvest is done in many passes to get optimal fruit. Organic and biodynamic. 25 day maceration. Fermentation in oak vats with punch down. Malolactic fermentation in barrel. Aged in oak for 16 months: 80% of which was used to age Camins and 20% one year old." Distributor Note
