Gnarly Head Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Our dark, bold Cabernet has solid tannins and jammy fruit, with aromas and flavors of black cherry, currant, dried cranberry and black peppercorn followed by a trio of clove, earth and light toast. Gnarly Cabernet Sauvignon is a worthy companion to the heartiest meals, be sure to try it with grilled lamb, New York strip steak with roasted potatoes, baked manicotti or some bold blue cheese.

Gnarly Head Cellars:
A passion for Zinfandel and a desire to make great Zin, led our winemaking team to Lodi, California's zinfamous appellation.

A passion for Zinfandel and a desire to make great Zin, led our winemaking team to Lodi, California's zinfamous appellation. But it was a sense of fun - wine should be fun, accessible, easy to understand and enjoy - that led us to create Gnarly Head Old Vine Zin. The sight of the free standing "head trained" vines found in older vineyards in California was the inspiration for Gnarly Head Old Vine Zin. These 35 to 80 year old vines have twisted old trunks and branches that spread out in all directions sprouting leaves like unruly umbrellas - truly gnarly heads. The grapes these old vines produce are small and few, but offer big flavor! But Zinfandel is not the only California grape that can be Gnarly. Our winemaking team selects grapes from some of the best vineyards in Northern California for our Gnarly Head Chardonnay, Merlot and Cab (Cabernet Sauvignon). Gnarly Head wines are easy to drink and pair with food, and made to bring people together, to enjoy with laughter, to celebrate past escapades and future adventures. Cheers! Read less

I took both - zin and cab Gnarly 2011 to compare. Zin seems to be more fresh and fun then cab... And cab is deep and doomed. both are good but I'd choose cab next time.

Gnarly Head Cabernet Sauvignon embodies bold. It's rich, fruit-driven, and dense, with a juicy core of dark fruit. Our winemakers carefully select grapes from California's finest growing regions, choosing only the best fruit. Some say that Cabernet is the king of wines and our bold Gnarly Head Cabernet proudly wears the crown.Our dark, bold Cabernet has solid tannins and jammy fruit, with aromas and flavors of black cherry, currant, dried cranberry and black peppercorn followed by a trio of clove, earth and light toast.
