Gnarly Head 'Old Vine California' Zinfandel 2019, California
Highly appealing, unique red wine
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.
5 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
"Perfumed and sweetly attractive, the wine shows Black Doris plum, vanilla, hazelnut and cake spice aromas on the nose, leading to a splendidly flavoursome palate that's fleshy and lingering. It's wonderfully ripe and smooth with elegant spicy complexity, making it immensely appealing."
