Gnarly Head Zinfandel Old Vine 2012

Gnarly Head Zinfandel Old Vine 750ml 2012     
Sku: 22620

These gnarly old vines in Lodi, California produce stingy quantities of bold, ripe, spicy zin. You want this with a cheeseburger and a good game on T.V.

Opaque purple/maroon color. Truckloads of raspberry aroma is evident in the first inhalations, then the bouquet gets serious, turning tannic, dusty dry, mince meat-like, jammy in later sniffs. Flavors of raspberry jam, blueberry compote are ripe, tart, dense, mildly tannic, chewy well into the supple aftertaste. Great Value

Wine maker 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.
