Alvaro Palacios is as meticulous as any vintner when it comes to vine maintenance and winemaking. His Finca Dofi blends Garnacha and Cabernet Sauvignon with some Syrah and sometimes Merlot, and the result is extremely impressive vintage after vintage. This wine is alluring, silky smooth and endowed with beautiful herb and mineral notes along with light oak, fine tannins and non-stop length on the finish. It's drinkable right now and should hold steady and/or improve over the next five years. Imported by Rare Wine Company. Editors' Choice.
