Natalie's Score: 90/100

Rich and round with lovely aromas of butterscotch, vanilla smoke and ripe peach. Full-bodied and mouth-filling, but not heavy. Solid value for this price. Try it with pasta in a cream sauce.

Chardonnay food pairings: buttered popcorn, roast chicken, lobster in butter.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The 2010 Ghost Pine Chardonnay, sourced from Sonoma, Monterey and Napa Counties and aged in both French and American oak after fermentation, has intense aromas of ripe pear, citrus, butter and subtle oak. It is medium bodied with good fruit intensity, has a good structure and a long and smooth finish. Pair with salty meat dishes, but rather enjoy sipping it by itself; drink now to 2017. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90pts – it is recommended especially because currently it is on Limited Time Offer for $2 off. Tasted March/13.

Ghost PInes Chardonnay blends grapes from Napa, Sonoma and Monterey with characters of baked apple, pear and lemon cream accented by an elegant and sweet vanilla finish.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
