(From «nv» Vintage) The Gnarly Head winemakers secretly call Pinot Noir "the heartbreak grape.” Notoriously difficult and challenging to grow and vinify, yet impossibly seductive on the palate, it takes a combination of daring winemaking skill and exceptional vineyards to wrest greatness from this alluring variety which we make in our own gnarly style. Our Pinot Noir has voluptuous, sleek tannins and lush fruit with aromas and flavors of violet, black cherry and plum with hints of toasted oak, cigar box, earth and spice. Round up some friends, break out a bottle of Gnarly Pinot Noir and enjoy with grilled salmon, glazed pork ribs or roast turkey.
A steal at $7, this wine is spicy, peppery and surprisingly robust with tart plums and black cherries.
smooth, light, fruity. no sharp tones. warm. very little buttery flavor. excellent overall.
decent but not amazing. good for a ten dollar bottle!
