Alvaro Palacios ‘Finca Dofi’ Priorat 2011

Grenache from Spain
Review Date : 12-Aug-2016
Dark, deep ruby-red with youthful purple hues, a little lighter on the rim. This has an elegant nose that gently opens in breadth and volume to show an aromatic array of ripe red berry fruits with florals and complexing earth and mineral elements, revealing a suggestion of dried herb and game. The aromatics grow in depth and richness in the glass. Fullish-bodied, the palate features rich and sweet fruit flavours of ripe raspberries and plums. This is open and accessible but has density and reserves of body. The extraction is fine-grained and supple, but provides a serious core and texture, and the wine flows positively to a rounded, sweet, lingering finish. This is sweetly ripe with raspberries and plums, and balanced with ripe tannins. 7-9+ years. 18.5-/20 Aug 2016 RRP $89.00
