Mas d’En Compte is one of the sites the Sangenis family farms in the village of Porrera. Sixty year old Carinyena and 15 year old Garnatxa and Cabernet Sauvignon are planted on deep, rocky, schist soils – both costers and terraces.

Not yet reviewed; 2016 vintage rated 94 points by Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Black Slate Porrera comes from a project of importer Eric Solomon focusing on the specific villages in the Priorat. The 2016 is 60% Grenache and 40% Carignan that was mostly destemmed and spent a full year in used barrels. Thrilling blue fruits, tar, rose petals, and a smoky, marine, iodine-like character all emerge from this full-bodied effort that opens up nicely with time in the glass. Tasting like it cost three times the price, it picks up more minerality with time in the glass, has beautiful balance, and great purity of fruit. It would be hard to find a better value. Drink bottles over the coming 3-5 years. Drink: 2019-2024."
