"Opaque ruby. Sexy, high-pitched aromas of red fruit liqueur, potpourri and pipe tobacco are accented by an building spiciness. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering sweet, deeply concentrated raspberry and floral pastille flavors that show outstanding vivacity and thrust. Closes with emphatic floral and red berry character and harmonious tannins that add gentle grip"

Review by The Wine Advocate; 96
"2011 was not an easy act to follow as it produced what probably was the best Dofí to date, yet the 2013 Finca Dofí is as good or even better! The single-vineyard 2013 Finca Dofí, made since 2011 with Garnacha and perhaps 5% Cariñena (previously made with Cabernet Sauvignon), was fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in barriques for 16 months after malolactic. They have achieved a level of sophistication in the élevage of this wine because it is completely different from the wines of, say, 2005 (or 1995!) that were hard and full of tannins. This 2013 is nothing like that. Of course, there are tannins, but the texture is completely different, more akin to a Barolo with earthiness that is coated by ripe fruit to create a singular, unmistakable Priorat. Again, the best Dofí to date. 18,000 bottles produced"

Review by Wine Spectator; 92
"Leafy and licorice notes frame black cherry, red plum and mineral flavors in this lively red, which is juicy and refreshing, with good focus. Graceful, balanced and long, with light tannins and fresh acidity giving energy and balance. Drink now through 2022. 1,175 cases made"
