The 2012 Chardonnay East of Eden Pisoni Vineyard is a supple, yet fresh and lively effort that has pretty citrus blossom, white flowers, flinty minerality and hints of almond paste that flow nicely to a pure, clean and lively palate feel. While normally the Pisoni Vineyard is all about power and richness, this is a decidedly supple, pure and elegant effort that has clean acidity and a focused, well-defined finish. (JD)
Light gold. Fresh melon, tangerine and Meyer lemon scents are deepened by suggestions of honey and sweet butter. Fleshy and broad yet precise, offering intense honeydew and candied citrus fruit flavors and a touch of smoky lees. Closes smooth, spicy and very long, with excellent clarity and building spiciness. The blend of power and vivacity here is really impressive. (JR)
The 2012 Chardonnay East of Eden Pisoni Vineyard is quite nuanced, with its richness more implied rather than explicitly stated. Crushed rocks, lemon, mint and pineapple lift from the glass in an understated, classy wine built on finesse and nuance. Another 6-12 months in bottle should help some of the typical Pisoni creaminess emerge more fully. Today, the East of Eden is a bit reticent, but it is still quite pretty. (AG)
