The Black Slate Porrera is a blend of 20-30 year old Garnatxa and Carinyena with a small addition of Cabernet Sauvignon that is aged in neutral barrels for 12 months. The grapes are selected from estate vineyards in the top sites in the village, including the famed Mas d’En Caçador vineyard. Blue fruits, tar, rose petals, and a smoky, marine-like character all emerge from this full-bodied effort that opens up nicely with time in the glass. Tasting like it cost three times the price, it picks up more minerality with time in the glass, has beautiful balance, and great purity of fruit.
