A hands down winner - and one of the best Zinfandels we have encountered in this price bracket for a decade or more. This is robust, grunty Old Vine Zin that will satisfy any lover of this most Californian of wines. Don't be shy. It isn't.
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.
Crazy value for money and best Zinfandels I have had in a long while. Works great on it’s own but perfectly paired with slow cooked Ossobuco having simmered for 8 hours. Gnarly!
