Featured Wine: Gnarly Head Wines
 
When the search for great Zinfandel led to Lodi, vineyards that are among the oldest in California were found. The vines planted in these older vineyards are freestanding “head-trained” vines that resemble wild bushes with twisted old trunks and branches spreading out in all directions – truly gnarly heads. These gnarled vines provide the inspiration for Gnarly Head…the wines they create are bold, full-bodied, juicy, and in other words, gnarly.


Wine Profile: Gnarly Head Old Vine ZinfandelGnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel

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.
