Proemio Icon Barrel Selection Red 2013
Wine EnthusiastBlack-fruit aromas blend nicely into chocolate, vanilla and savory fig scents on the nose of this Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot blend. A dense, well-structured palate holds savory flavors of plum and baked berry fruits. A complex finish that revolves around mild oak and salty fruit flavors is lasting. Drink through 2023.

Wine AdvocateThe oaky, dusty and chocolaty 2013 I Barrel Selection is a blend of 55% Malbec, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot from different zones in Mendoza. It's quite fresh and balanced, but the flavors are riper on the medium-bodied palate with fruit and hints of vanilla and other sweet spices. For fans of international oaky reds.
