Steely and intense in baked pear and pineapple, this white from a well-known vineyard more often associated with Pinot Noir offers contrast in a quality package. On the one hand, it's bright and vibrant, and on the other, there's a richness of caramel and oak, the wine coming in like a lion, out like a lamb. Cellaring might equalize the sides; hold through 2020.
