93 POINTS & 5 STARS: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

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.  Older vines produce fewer grape clusters, but the small berries yield intense, concentrated fruit flavors. Grapes were hand-harvested in the cool of the night, then delivered to the winery to be de-stemmed and gently pressed into fermentation tanks. After seven to nine days of fermentation, the wine was gently racked into a combination of French and American oak for malolactic fermentation and aging. 

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.
