Discover Zinfandel Wines
Red Zinfandel is a grape varietal with black and blue skins that is mostly produced and consumed in the United States.
This grape tends to have lighter-bodied qualities in the glass while yet retaining strong notes. Zin has a strong acidic content and a traditionally high alcohol level, which contributes to this (up to 17 percent in some cases).
Because of these two characteristics, Zinfandel may have a medium body on the palate.
Raspberry, raisin, cherry, cassis, and plum are just a few of the rich red fruit tastes found in this grape type. Black pepper spice, tobacco, dry barnyard door, and coffee are often used to complement these jammy fruit tastes.
While these are the broad strokes, Zinfandel tastes may vary widely, and alcohol level is a significant factor.
Cooler temperature Zins are said to have more red fruit tastes, whereas warmer climate varietal wines have more black fruit and pepper subtleties, depending on maturity at harvest.
Over 70% of Zinfandel acreage is owned by the United States, with the rest held by Italy (approximately 27%) and different places across Australia, South Africa, and Mexico.
About the Producer: Gnarly Head
Gnarly Head is a value-driven wine brand that produces a wide selection of wines from California fruits. The brand was created in 2004 and is best known for producing Lodi Zinfandel vines aged 35 to 80 years. The brand belongs to Delicato Family Vineyards. The majority of Gnarly Head's wine portfolio is California table wine from appellations such as Lodi, Monterey and North Coast. These wines are made from several popular grape varieties, including Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio. Several reds are featured on the label, including Authentic Red, Authentic Black, 1924 Double Black and Harvest Red. Grapes are typically picked at night to maintain their acidity, then peeled and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Gnarly Head's signature wine, Old Vine Zinfandel, is handpicked from Kramer and Clay Station vineyards in Lodi, then peeled and gently pressed in stainless steel tanks for fermentation for about a week. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and ages in French and American oak.
