Natalie's Score: 87/100

Full-bodied, textbook Californian chardonnay: butter, oak and some peach. “Irony” refers to owners Jay and Chris Indelicato when they were young men and left the family winery to pursue other careers. Years later, they returned home to the family business and represent the third generation of the Delicatos to make wine. Here's to them!

Chardonnay food pairings: lobster in butter sauce, beef bourguignon, cheese, poultry, spiced grilled seafood.

Lots of toasted almonds and hazelnuts on the nose from the oak aging on this full-bodied white wine made from the signature grape chardonnay. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
