A guy at Sunflower recommend this one. Mild-high acid. Alcohal in the wine gave me this warm feeling in my gut... almost like a shot of liquer (I'm not complaining but....) It wasn't what I ws expecting... I was hoping for something more like Apothic Red.... or Five Rivers. It's a typical Tuesday night wine... though... at price point Rex Golith will do this trick!

Auge: Intensive dunkle Farbe; Nase: kräftige Fruchtaromen von dunklen Himbeeren und Kirschen; Graumen: Weiche, sehr zugängliche Tannine. Garantiert viel Trinkspass!

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.

Robust berry flavors and exotic spice notes from the small grape clusters are balanced with French, American and Hungarian oak, which creates heady layers of vanilla and chocolate and a lingering finish. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

This medium bodied wine combines the luscious aromas of blackberry, raspberry and spicy oak with the richness of chocolate and jam.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel is crafted from grapes from 35 to 80 year old vines. Rich, dark berry flavors from the small grape clusters are balanced with French, American and Hungarian oak, which creates layers of plum, pepper, cola and chocolate. This luscious combination provides a lingering and spicy finish. This wine pairs well with barbecue, pizza, hearty pastas, chili and ribs.

Tasting 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. 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.
