Alvaro Palacios is Spain's most celebrated wine maker. Born in the family winery in Rioja, he spread his wings as a wine maker at Petrus & Stag's Leap before coming back and establishing, not just his own label, but entire regions in Priorat and Bierzo in the 1990's. (Before this time these regions were but a footnote in wine encyclopedias).

Finca Dofi was the wine that kickstarted Priorat. It is quintessentially Priorat, and outside of his top wine l'Ermita, (which retails in the thousands per bottle) Finca Dofi is regularly cited as the best wine that comes out of thre region. Garnacha and Carinena, the wine is brimming with character imparted from Priorat's unique licorella soil (which recalls the scent you get from truffle). Robust, full bodied, but with Alvaro's signature acid profile, it will actually drink young if desired, but will improve every minute it is lying down. It is incredibly pointed and regularly ships 95+ points from all and sundry in the wine press. STSWine
