Winemaker's Description: 

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 jammy blackberry and black cherry flavors with hints of black pepper, balanced by complex American and French oak toast.

Try pairing this bold wine with braised short ribs, chicken enchiladas or dark chocolate.
