|Other Details:||When the search for great Zinfandel led us to Lodi, we ended up visiting vineyards that have some of the oldest vines in California. As the truck pulled up to the 80-year-old Zinfandel vineyard, my first impression was "wow, those vines sure have some gnarly heads!"
Unlike modern rows of trellised vines, these old Zinfandel vines were grown as free standing "head trained" vines. Today they resemble wild bushes with twisted old trunks and branches that spread out in all directions sprouting leaves like unruly umbrellas – truly gnarly heads. The grapes from these brash old vines create Zinfandel with rich, concentrated fruit flavor that is easy to drink and pair.
