Winemaker's Notes

Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel makes a bold statement at first sip. Our quest for outstanding Zinfandel led us down a country road into the heart of Lodi, California revealing a sea of gnarled, 35 – 80 year-old vines pruned in a special, mop-topped way called "head trained". True gnarly heads, these old vines yield fewer grape clusters with smaller berries than trellised vines. These mighty little berries produce intense, bold wines that are deep in color with concentrated dark fruit flavors.

    Something in the taste and nose of this wine is off - putting to me. Didn't even finish the glass.

    Very strong alcohol taste. Not very smooth. Hints of leather and smoke.

    Great red for enjoying by itself or with smokey BBQ or spicy dishes.
