A quite nice surprise as we didn't expect much from this and ended up being a very nice experience. On the simple side but very nice still. The wine is unpretentious and un-adulterated. Def has seen some oak in its elevage but it carries it well and the restrain on the oak helps the wine stay expressive ( we wish other Spaniards would follow the same path. We are scarred by over-oaked Spanish wines). Good fresh red fruit, good acidity, the tannin is vibrant but not harsh and there is beauty in the relative forward-ness of the wine. An 89 from us but a good 89 and wouldn't hesitate to order it again.

2012 Celler Cal Pla Priorat Black Slate Porrera

Grenache Blend, Grenache more

5/9/2015 - deon40g wrote: 89 points

The 2012 Celler Cal Pla Black Slate Porrera currently rates as 90 points with the CellarTracker community. This review is a follow up on my notes from November 2014 for the 2011 vintage. The 2012 is a much bolder showing of this wine. This vintage is full of ripe dark berries (i.e., "juicy"), noticeable alcohol (yet not especially hot), a medium-plus body, medium tannins, and medium acidity. The uncharacteristic effervescence that showed in the 2010 and 2011 vintages is no longer present in the 2012. I am surprised that a grenache and carignan blend has so much flavor and fruit-forward character. My typical experience with a grenache is much more minerality and earthiness. However, not with this wine. I would have been way off in a blind tasting. I rate the 2012 Celler Cal Pla Black Slate Porrera 89 points with the potential to stretch to a 91...depending on my mood for a jammy wine (it also drinks well on day two). This wine is likely to be a crowd pleaser, but I can also see it being too overwhelming for some taste preferences. It is definitely worth the price of admission at just under $20 a bottle. No need to wait, it is ready to drink now. Enjoy!

- Yellow gold color. It's somewhat balanced with a medium/full body. Satin-Like texture with a medium finish.

Such a great wine. So versatile. Drinks above the price. Has many great elements: aromatic, plenty of fruit, broad flavor profile (leather, smoke, cigar) lush mouthfeel, ample acidity, med plus finish. Could serve with novices or experts

From 75cl, v. good cork. Exactly as noted on 21.11.2015. Best at 13C cellar temperature; too cold and the knock-out floral scent is muted, too warm and the mid-palate balance tips. But the killer numbing orange-oil finish soars at any temperature. 93P

Took to Richards house. Decanted for one hr which was not enough. Nice nose but tannins are very noticeable. The fruit is there; this needs at least 5 years to really shine

Deep orange-y gold. Intense flavors of Meyer lemon curd and butterscotch. A dry wine but with dessert wine weight. Interesting as a cocktail but would be hard to match with food other than cheese.

2007 Celler Cal Pla Priorat Mas d'en Compte

Followed over 3 days. First day was more primary yet delicious flavors of vanilla, strawberry and dusty ripe cherries. Good balance of acidity and just enough tannins to give off some dryness in the end but mostly all integrated. Day 2 was a bit harsher an awkward as it lost all the vanilla and fruit notes and did not transform into anything interesting. By day 3, the wine developed a nice profile of tobacco with earthy/spicy notes with a faint hint of red cherries.

Interesting to follow this wine and the oak influence from sweet vanilla initially to rustic tobacco. Drink now if you want more of the sweet red fruit and vanilla notes. Drink in ~3-5 years w/ a short decant to enjoy it more as an old-world wine. At under $30 for a Priorat, great QPR and a huge step up from the "black slate" production.

sweet ripe fruit and a touch of oak. blackberry and a hint of mineral. lush mid, a bit soft but velvety and plush. smells like it will be a big wine but is medium bodies and quite well balanced. finish is ripe but missing a bit of acidity. With time this showed a bit more mineral touches. tannins integrated. Drink now - good qpr

Too much oak. Tastes a little bit oxidized. I think it's really the over-the-top oak that messes this wine up, though. The first bottle was the same. Unfortunately, I still have a bottle left. Not bad enough to dump down the drain, but not good either.

From 75cl, good cork. I have nothing to add to previous TNs. This is a dream, a bargain, a great big wild wine. Wonderful aromatic-numbing tangerine/orange-oil action. Buy it and drink it now —or in the next X years.

StudleyTrey nailed the description. Not a lot of acid and more than a little oak. Full disclosure, I like a big Rombauer like Chard on occasion and this is big. Also, give it props for being a bit different as the varietal mix will attest.

Dusty, chalky blueberry. Blue and black fruit, dense, concentrated, full-bodied. A touch floral with some dried violets and a little tartness. At times I got a little tingle on the tip of my tongue, as if there was a slight carbonation or effervessence, but it never lasted/always faded quickly. Very nice, but not as superb as the previous bottle from another vintage. Nonetheless a perennial buy. 88 pts.

Bought in November 2012 from Wine Library. This was my sixth of six - the other bottles were good enough on QPR that I bought a case of the 2012, but this one was flawed with the fizziness others have described.
