Broken Road is consistently one of our most savory, stony wines from the mountain and in the cooler 2011 vintage it displays those elements in spades. Lemon verbena and int emerge rst from the glass, opening to a rich entry that cascades through peach pit, shell and ocean spray-all culminating in a nish with astonishing grip and acidity. While this wine is powerful and delicious now, it will easily reward ten years of proper cellaring.

Wine EnthusiastEven though this Chardonnay has rich, ripe flavors of tropical fruit, peaches, apples and honey, it possesses an austere elegance by virtue of dryness, minerality and acidity. The blocks from which the grapes were grown are part of Stonestreet's holdings in the mountains overlooking Alexander Valley. This is a fine wine, intricate and powerful. Drink now-2015.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Chardonnay Broken Road is a great introduction to the Stonestreet wines. Rich layered and deeply textured - but not at all heavy - the 2011 is simply brilliant. Lemon oil, butter and crushed rocks are all very much alive in the glass. The 2011 is absolutely delicious, but it could use another 6-12 months in bottle to fully come together, as it is a bit tight at the moment. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2018.
