Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel is crafted using grapes from select vineyards throughout the Lodi region – known as the “Zin-famous” appellation. Lodi has an ideal climate for growing exceptional grapes with its warm summer days and cool nighttime breezes from the ocean, in addition to sandy, well-draining soil. Its grapes are hand-selected primarily from the Mokelumne River area, home to some of the oldest and most respected vineyards in Lodi. 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 destemmed 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.
