    This delicious little gem was quite a surprise with dinner last night. Rich and spicy, with a lush nose of black plums, currants and licorice. Plush mouthfeel with deep, dark, red and black fruits (black currant and black raspberry). Nice tarty finish with a hint of cranberry fruit. I don't usually like to carry on about prices but, this one really is a bargain!

    I have been impressed by all of the Black Slate offerings so far, but this might be my favorite yet. This wine definitely exhibits the classic, dark fruit, but features a medium weight body and a ton of acidity that keeps it fresh and juicy instead of heavy and brooding. This is a really great tasting wine and with the complexity it features I expect the price point to be a lot higher. Fantastic find from Priorat.
    Top Value!

    If the name "black slate," which refers to the predominant soil type of the Priorat, sounds familiar, it is probably due to our having emailed about a few other tasty, but very different bottlings from this producer. As delicious as the other two, single village bottlings of Black Slate were, we have one more for you this year, and the La Vilella Alta bottling just might be the most open knit, expressive, juicy and delicious Priorat we have featured all year. Loaded with blackberry fruit and subtly floral characteristics, balanced by a fresh line of acidity, this if terrific Priorat, and a real treat to have such a wonderful intro to the wines of this region for under $17.
