Black Slate Porerra Priorat

2014 Black Slate Porerra Priorat $16.99
We are thrilled to offer the latest vintage of one of our store favorites at an amazing price. The 2014 has not been scored but the previous vintage was rated 95/100 by Robert Parker. Right now we have plenty in stock!
The inspiration is a Burgundian concept of village nomeclature....PORRERA, the eastmost village of the region, enjoys the cooler temperatures due to its high altitude and canyon like topography, lending a unique balance of weight and freshness in the wine.

Review of the 2013, 2014 not reviewed yet
2013 Mas d’en Compte is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Carignan aged in a combination of concrete tanks. Large wood foudres and smaller French oak barrels. The wine offers loads of licorice and black raspberries and seems to represent the quintessential style of Priorat in its opulence – floral, blueberry and black raspberry fruit, intense minerality and silky, lush tannins. This medium to full-bodied wine should continue to drink well for another 5-8 years, possibly longer. -- Rated 95/100 Robert Parker
