Gnarly Head Wines Old Vine Zin Zinfandel Lodi
90 point rated - made from 30-80 yr old vines. Smoky blackberry fruit, complex and well-balanced. Really great Zinfandel value.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesArtificially sweet in it suggestions of grape jelly and vanilla, this wine is soft and almost flaccid at entry and never quite gets on track even as a bit of acidity rises at the close. Dull, viscous and too gloppy, it reminds of jug wine.
