External Reviews for Stonestreet Chardonnay Broken Road
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.
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.

According to Antonio Galloni - Stonestreet is arguably the greatest undiscovered gem in the Kendall-Jackson portfolio. The wines are always distinctive and full of personality. Best of all, they remain exceptionally fairly priced.

A full bodied effort this is tempting and delicious now though it will age for another 3-4 years. It s hard to believe the price on this release all sourced from a single mountain estate site. This is exactly what many of my California faithful seek for a house or party chardonnay. Neil Mechanic.
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. Drink now–2015.
Intense and concentrated, this Chardonnay powerfully displays the pedigree of its mountain terroir. The Meyer lemondrop candy, orange and apricot fruit flavors are enriched with minerals and uplifted by bright acidity, while the oak influence lends a... Wine Enthusiast.
