    Winemaker's Notes:

    At 1,800 feet and with a southwest exposure, this site sees sun nearly all day long, yet the Pacific breezes and gravel soils promote a distinct focus and minerality in the grapes from this block. Seismic activity literally creates the "Broken Road," after which this vineyard is named, so it is fitting that the wine's characteristic minerality speaks to the earth below which influences it.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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 tension of opulence. A very fine, elegant and sophisticated wine for drinking now.

    Pale yellow with a green tinge. More minerally than the Upper Barn, showing excellent lift to the lemon curd and toast aromas. Round but firm, with solid supporting structure and grip and an exotic hint of coconutty oak. Finishes suave and very long, with superb lift. The strong acids of 2010 required later picking, noted winemaker Graham Weertz.

    The 2010 Chardonnay Broken Road is a textured wine graced with notable depth and richness. This is a slightly fatter style than the Upper Barn, but there is no shortage of minerality or vibrancy here. The Broken Road comes across as quite round and totally complete. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.
