Gnarly Head Zinfandel 2012

Gnarly Head Zinfandel 2012

750ML    
Sku: 024203

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.

Rating
2010: 85 Points - Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast: "This majority Zin with 18% Petite Sirah is a popular, widely available choice for many Zin loves. Its concentrated fists of sweetness—vanilla and cherry-based mostly—are hits with many consumers. "

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.
