The 2017 harvest has been characterized as being hot and dry. Early low water reserves became more severe during the months of July and August, when conditions were extremely dry except for some heavy rains at the start of harvest. But without a doubt, the decisive moment of the year was the frost that affected much of Ribera del Duero on April 28 immediately after launch, resulting in weak plant mass. This affected the growth and flowering of plants throughout the year, resulting in production losses of between 70 and 80%. This devastation was followed by some very hot months in June and July. Because of these issues, the grapes from this harvest have been smaller in size. Peter Sisseck described it as an "early harvest characterized by ripe aromas, great extract and low acidity". Due to the strong frost that occurred in Ribera de Duero, they had to look for new areas in the DO, such as Burgos and Soria, for the production of PSI. Wine aged 14 months in French oak barrels.
