Details

93 points Wine Advocate Their village wine, the 2013 Porrera, also packs a bang with its routinely 15.5% alcohol and low acidity. It's mostly Cariñena with 28% Garnacha from old slope vineyards on slate soils. The wine fermented in a mixture of oak barriques and stainless steel, and the Cariñena matured in brand new French barriques while the Garnacha was kept in larger, 1,500-liter oak foudres and terracotta amphora for some 14 months. It's quite ripe, and slightly spirity, with aromas of macerated bark, fruit and plenty of spicy oak, but with some distant violets and something that reminded me of the aromatic profile of Touriga Nacional. The palate shows a lot more of the effect of the oaking, with abundant, dusty and slightly drying tannins, but there is nice fruit and good freshness underneath. This has a defined profile, so it's aimed for people who like very ripe and powerful reds and are tolerant to oak. It will improve with time in bottle.
