Buy Alvaro Palacios Finca Dofi 2010***
Wine Advocate 93 points - The 2010 Finca Dofi is a blend of 80% Garnacha, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Syrah, sourced from 19- to 31-year-old vines and matured in 80% new French oak and 20% one year old for 16 months. The aromatics are still defined by that carapace of new oak, although underneath lies some fine dark cherry and raspberry fruit interlaced by Chinese five-spice, lavender and wild heather. The palate is powerful and full-bodied with a very intense entry of pure dark berries intermingled with balsamic and Asian spices, a core of ripe black currant and a dense, grippy finish. It displays impressive length and persistency, though it will remain impenetrable for the first 5-6 years of its life. Drink 2017-2030. (Apr 2012)
