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. A core of rich, dark berry flavors with layers of spice, plum, pepper and vanilla balanced by light hint of toasted oak. Think pasta with sauce or ribs directly from the BBQ.

The saying at Gnarly Head goes "Old Vines Make Bold Wines"...cool labels don't hurt either and in a short period of time, Gnarly Head has become one of our best selling California wines.

Gnarly Head's first claim to fame was their Old Vines Zinfandel, sourced from various vineyards throughout Lodi, California. They aren't fooling by saying its "Old Vines," with the average vineyard age ranging from 35 to 80 years old! Bold, rich and fruit driven are three great adjectives used to describe all their wines. A gold medal award winner at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and World Wine Championships, the 2012 vintage just picked up a Best Buy designation from the Wine Enthusiast.
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.
