2016 Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel

November 9, 2018 - Norman Bentley
#42-18-PIE

The Zinfandels from the Lodi region in California continue to get better as the vines get older. I have tasted and written about Gnarly Head Old Vine Zin for over a dozen years, and consistently scored the vintages in the upper 80's, which is a great value in the ten dollar wine market! The wine is made from 35 to 80 year old vines, which produce intensely flavored fruit.

This is a big fruit wine which is rich and jammy with highlights of blackberry and plum. There is a hint of oak, but the finish is smooth and soft with a pleasant lingering aftertaste. The alcohol content is 14.5%, and Norm's score is 88.

This is a good wine for steak, but also great with barbecue or even spaghetti.

price : $9 - $12

score: 88
