Winemaker Notes

Broken Road is consistently one of the 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.

Critical Acclaim

ST 93
International Wine Cellar

Bright yellow. Highly nuanced nose combines lemon custard, smoked meat, minerals and hazelnut complicated by a sulfidey quality. Plush but very dry, with a lightly saline quality adding interest to the perfumed pineapple and mineral flavors. Finishes stony, dry and long. This is remarkably Burgundian for a California chardonnay in its price range. A worthy successor to the outstanding 2010 bottling.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Even 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.

V 90
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

The 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.

Stonestreet
In the autumn of 1989, Jess Jackson acquired the Zellerbach winery and renamed it in honor of his late father, Jess Stonestreet Jackson. Stonestreet quickly garnered international acclaim for their powerful reds and luscious whites.

Today, Stonestreet wines are undergoing a transformation, using fruit from Alexander Mountain Estate and new winemaking techniques. Alexander Mountain Estate, with lean, well-draining soils and cooler temperature, produces fruit with smaller berries and more intense color and flavor. Stonestreet is dedicated to fulfilling the promise of Alexander Valley's exceptional and distinctive vineyards. Traditional, Old World methods of hand harvesting, small barrel lot production, native yeast fermentation and bottling each wine unfiltered brings out the best in specific grape varieties and provides the quality framework for each Stonestreet wine.

A large and diverse appellation within California’s North Coast AVA, Mendocino is home to several smaller sub-regions—most notably the Anderson Valley. This scenic region covered in redwood forests is one of the world’s top producers of certified organically-grown grapes. Due to wide geographical and climatic variation, a vast array of wine styles can be found here.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
