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

Great tasting zin with lots of fruit flavors and a real mouthful of wine taste and for under $10.00 was a great bargain. Wish I could find more at this price.

Powerful, Spicy from the start, give it a few minutes to breathe and it will smooth out a bit... ate it with some tri-tip, went very well, would also compliment spicy sausage and pasta very well.

Excellent value for the money, 2004 and 2005 are comparable to a Ridge Lytton Springs or an 03 Primitivo. Even when decanted for an hour, the 06 falls flat and isn't worth your time.
