Winemaker's Notes

Elevation, exposure and gravel soils combine to create a wine of minerality and focus.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright yellow-straw. Pungent lime zest, green tropical fruits, pineapple and snap pea on the nose. Densely packed, tight and minerally, with terrific definition and a tactile quality reminiscent of peach nectar. Very concentrated, vibrant wine with a long, lightly saline finish. From vines planted at an altitude of 1,800 feet."
93 Points

"Every bit as good is the 2008 Chardonnay Broken Road. Abundant gravelly/mineral-like notes intermixed with tropical fruit, oranges, and other stone fruits as well as quince and mango emerge from this elegant, crisp offering. It may be slightly less full-bodied than the Red Point, but that’s splitting hairs at this level of quality. "
