Vivid gold. Much more extroverted than the straight RRV bottling, displaying candied pineapple, nectarine and tangerine on the nose. Lush, palate-coating tropical fruit flavors show a seriously exotic character but pick up a firming citrus pith element in the mid-palate, along with a note of smoky lees. The smoky quality builds on the finish, which is broad, spicy and very long. Donatiello told me that these vines were planted in 1968.
