Gnarly Head Old Vine Lodi Zinfandel 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

*Gold - International Wine & Spirit Competition 2013* *Gold - San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition 2013* At Gnarly Head it all starts in the vineyard. Their quest for outstanding Zinfandel led them 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. These bold, sophisticated wines are crafted to be enjoyed with a wide selection of foods, and made to bring people together, to enjoy with laughter, to celebrate past escapades and future adventures. The Old Vine Zinfandel has a gnarly core of rich, dark berry flavours 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.

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

The Gnarly Head (Lodi, CA) Zinfandel is typical of its Central Valley provenance; there is a soft vanilla-cherry nose with a hint of evergreen (cedar or cypress), and entry is slightly sweetish with a ton of blueberry or bilberry on the palate, a short finish but decent balance with little heat (despite the 15% alcohol by volume.) and touch of complexity. Good barbecue wine. 84.
