Wine Description

(From 2002 Vintage) Lemon, honey, mineral and light spice. Very attractive aromas. Full-bodied, with fresh acidity and a long finish where it turns to spice and toffee.

Winemaker's Notes

"A prodigious offering, the 2001 Climens’ light medium bold color with a greenish hue is followed by ethereal aromas of tropical fruits (primarily pineapple), honeysuckle, and flowers. It is a medium-bodied wine of monumental richness, extraordinary precision/delineation, great purity, and moderate sweetness. The finish seemingly lasts forever. This monumental effort is the stuff of legends. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2040+."-Wine Advocate
