Wine Review: Proemio Grand Reserve Winemaker's Selection 2013

September is Proemio Month on TheWineStalker.net!
Proemio Grand Reserve Winemaker's Selection 2013

Proemio – "Prologue" in old Medieval Spanish, stands for kick-start or first page. In 2001, Marcelo Bocardo, third generation winemaker and the descendant of a traditional Italian immigrant family founded Proemio with the goal of producing high quality wines that truly represent his ancestors’ passion for viticulture and a legacy for the generations to come. Marcelo Bocardo could be described as a new wave winemaker of Argentinian wines, avoiding over extraction and heavy use of oak, focusing on expression of the terroir (i.e. Uco Valley, Pedriel-Luján de Cuyo and Maipú).

All of September is dedicated to Proemio! This is review #6 of 8, and you can read all of the reviews I've done so far by clicking here.

The 2013 Grand Reserve Winemakers Selection is 50% Malbec, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Syrah, and 5% Grenache from various vineyards: 10 year old vineyards in Russell – Maipú (at 2,624 ft asl), 30 year old vineyards in Paraje El Cepillo – Valle de Uco (at 4,265 feet asl) and 80-100 year old vineyards in Perdriel – Luján de Cuyo (at 3608 ft asl). 80 years old is what's listed on the label as the vine's age. Sustainably grown, manually harvested with cluster selection, fermented and macerated in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts, unfined, and aged in French oak for eighteen months. The ABV is 14.5% and it will cost you $27.

Wine Quickie: Luna Vineyards Estate Pinot Grigio 2016


Luna was the first to plant Pinot Grigio in Napa Valley's Silverado Trail, and the 2016 vintage is 100% Pinot Grigio that saw fermentation in neutral barrels and lees aging for five months. It'll run you around $32 and, man, is it worth it. It's an orange and lemon bomb that has an alluring minerality and fresh herbs on the nose, and almonds and green peppers on the palate. And it's not a watery quaffer either. It's full bodied with a silky mouthfeel and a bright acidity that come together to make a stunningly beautiful finish. I am absolutely impressed by this wine, and that rarely happens for me with Pinot Grigio.

I recently reviewed their 2016 entry-level Cabernet Sauvignon and this is their 2014 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. It's 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from ten year old vineyards in Russell, Maipú. Hand harvested with cluster selection, fermented and macerated in small concrete vats with indigenous yeasts, unfined and unfiltered, and aged for twelve months in French oak barrels. It has a 14% ABV and will cost you $18.
