2016 "East of Eden" Chardonnay
Santa Lucia Highlands
Powerful yet controlled nose, with notes of lemon drop enveloped in Crème brûlée and brioche aromas, California meets Burgundy. The body is long and powerful with marine-influenced salinity and a fresh boisterous finish. This wine has a larger-than-life personality, much like the man growing the grapes, Gary Pisoni. This wine will pair well with lighter dishes of seafood or chicken, but also has the potential to compliment a steak.
