Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"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."

Jeb Dunnuck - The Rhone Report:

"Coming from the eastern most village in Priorat, Porrera, and a blend of 60% Grenache (60-year-old vines) and 40% Carignan (80-year-old vines), the 2010 Black Slate is a gorgeous, full-bodied effort that gives up loads of licorice-drenched black raspberry, plum, wild flower, spice-box, and schist like minerality on both the nose and palate. Voluptuously textured and layered with sweet fruit, this beauty has no hard edges, gorgeous purity, and a serious finish. Enjoy it over the coming 5-7 years."
