It appears a deep, intense yellow-gold impressive for its clarity. A strikingly rich array of fragrances on the nose include fresh walnuts, dried fruit such as raisins, figs, apricots, and prunes, enriched with spicier notes of roasted espresso bean and vanilla. Warm and well-balanced in the mouth, it exhibits a lively, crisp acidity that complements the velvety sweetness. The long-lingering finish exhibits an elegant profile and leaves a satisfying cleanness in the mouth.

Climate Harvest was distinguished by its close to normal season, with a cooler spring than those of the preceding years, and a delayed budding. During the summer the temperatures stabilized below the norm for the season, and only in the last two weeks of July they began to climb. The soils were well drained yet at the same time had a substantial water reserve. The cool and mild nights helped to produce elegant wines. The bunches were sparse, and the berries in very good condition, both in terms of size as well as structure and concentration.
