Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel is made using grapes sourced from gnarled 35-80 year old head trained vines.
As some of the oldest vines in California, the fruit produced is exceptional, intense and full-flavored. This intrepid Old Vine Zinfandel has a gnarly core of rich, jammy blackberries and mocha flavors with layers of spice and vanilla balanced by complex French and American oak toast. Try pairing this bold wine with braised short ribs, chicken enchiladas or dark chocolate. Winery
"Brushy aromas and flavours and a sturdy body are hallmark notes for this red grown on old, gnarly, untamed vines. Toasted graham cracker and cocoa cedar merge with blue plum, for a hearty – yet juicy – core. French and American oak impart creaminess and spice. A tribute to Lodi!" 90/100 United States Review, The Tasting Panel, February 2021
