Wine of the Week – Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel

Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel

I think this is the perfect chili or pulled pork wine, and since this endless winter has called for such cozy dishes for longer than I remember from past winters, Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel is here to stay.

I love Zinfandels that are bursting with dark berry flavor, a little sweet strawberry jam, and a big bold finish. This Gnarly Head Zin from Lodi, California has all of that with some cocoa added in, making it ideal to go with the kinds of spices you find at a BBQ. And while I adore a good Zin in the winter, they can be just as at home when you are grilling up burgers and ribs when summer comes.

Are you a fan of Zinfandel? Do you have a favorite I should try?

    My first and only experience w/ Gnarly Head was a rancid old vine zin. :( A friend had brought it for an Old Vine Zin blind tasting we did and the color was brown…I’d give it another try though since you like it and it’s been a couple years. :)

    I’ve seen this wine before but have never tried it. I’ll have to pick it up next time I see it!

    I haven’t had a Zinfandel in a while but I remember drinking Ravenswood in the past and enjoying it.
