Marshmallow and fig compote provide the sultry goods in this wine from two exceptional vineyard sites within the appellation's Middle Reach neighborhood. Borderline salty, with a scent of matchstick, it evolves in the glass into a complex, complete wine, elements of pear pie and lemon zest rising to the fore.
