From the Black Slate project of Eric Solomon, Philippe Cambie and, in this case, producer Joan Sangenis, the 2010 Black Slate Porrera, a blend of 60% Grenache (60+ years of age) and 40% Carignan (80-year-old vines), is another stunning value from Priorat. Consumers can thank the horrible Spanish economy for the low price of such a high quality wine from this prestigious appellation. Sweet raspberry and black cherry fruit notes intermixed with notions of crushed rocks, spring flowers and a slate-like component are broad, savory, impressively pure, dense and full. This round, generous, opulent red can be consumed over the next decade. There are 2,000 cases available for the American market.

Description
Winery Notes:

AN ERIC SOLOMON CUSTOM CUVEE

Black Slate Porrera is made by Mas d’en Compte - one of the oldest grape-growing families in the Priorat. The Sangenis family had historically sold the entirety of their production to the local coop until 1995 when they formed a new company, Mas d’en Compte, to bottle wine under their own name. Now, young Joan Sangenis manages the estate. In a region where almost everyone has a few vines over 50 years old, the Sangenis family’s entire vineyard is practically this old, with several small parcels of 100+ year old vines of Grenache and Carignan. This old vine material means that yields are extremely low and concentration is quite high.
