2012 Black Slate Porrera, Priorat, Spain
$14.99 at Winestore.
Eric Solomon is known for making really delicious wines, often at very approachable prices. I’m a big fan, and will try anything he’s put on the shelves. This is from a region known for much more expensive offerings, and Solomon has done it again, creating a hearty, tasty wine with a lovely fruity/earthy spiciness. It is just about perfect with winter dishes. And I don’t know how Winestore does it, but they have the lowest price in the country on this bottle. Catherine Rabb
