Wine Details


Gnarly Head





Wine Description

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. Our Old Vine Zinfandel has a gnarly core of rich, dark berry flavors with layers of spice, plum, pepper and vanilla balanced by light hint of toasted oak. Break out a bottle Gnarly Old Vine Zin and pair with BBQ pork ribs, moms favorite Chili or steak fajitas.

    Favorite...Wine...EVER!!! Now if I want to bring a bottle of wine somewhere as a gift, I bring this. It's a real crowd pleaser. Everyone I know who has tried it has loved it, no matter what their taste is. I didn't even like wine until I tried this. It turned me on to wine in general!! Love this wine so much.
