2017 Black Slate "Porrera" Priorat

SKU #1549003 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Plums, blueberries, licorice, violets, candied rose, and a beautiful spice character all emerge from the 2017 Black Slate Porrera, and it’s incredibly complex and nuanced aromatically. This carries to a medium to full-bodied, powerful red with incredible finesse, elegant, silky tannins, and a gorgeous finish. It's another heavenly wine selling for way below what it’s worth. Inner quote mark (3/2021)

K&L Notes

The Black Slate project is the brainchild of importer extraordinaire Eric Solomon, in which he collaborates with a handful of small wineries in the region to produce quintessential and authentic examples of their respective home turfs. The Porrera is the work of Joan Sangens of Cellar Cal Pla, whose family owns and farms 20 hectares of Garnatxa Negra, Carinyena, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Everything is done by hand in the vineyard (the only possible way to farm these incredibly rugged, unforgiving parcels), and the winery uses native yeast fermentation in concrete followed by 12 months aging in neutral French and Hungarian oak to complete a picture-perfect expression of the terroir of Porrera.
