The 2018 Black Slate La Vilella Alta (50% Grenache, 30% Carignan, and the rest equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah) is a big, rich, powerful wine offering lots of blue and red fruits, spring flowers, lavender, and spice-driven aromas and flavors. With medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful purity, a solid spine of acidity, ripe tannins, and a beautiful finish, it's another singular wine with brilliant character.

 

Winemaker Notes

The inspiration for the Black Slate Project is a Burgundian concept of village nomenclature, applied to the Priorat. One region, nine historic villages, each with its distinct character, but all unmistakably Priorat. Sun-scorched vines cling to breathtakingly steep hillsides with their roots deeply plunged in the llicorella soils of this pristine, ancient region.
