I was looking for something new to try and stumbled upon this at the wine and spirits shop. Needless to say I'm very glad I picked it up as it has become my favorite all around wine. It's a nice full bodied wine, but far from over powering. The first time I had this was while eating Chinese food, and I was surprised at how well it paired with the spicy and citrusy foods I was eating.
The wine is easily drinkable with a number of dishes. I find it is nice with Thai food, Mexican food, meats, cheeses, and pastas. Everyone finds it agreeable. The only problem is the cork...it's a plastic cork that sometimes has the tendency to have the corkscrew come right out without having pulled the cork out with it....annoying.
This is one of our favorite zins. My wife and I like to cook spicy foods, such as Mexican and BBQ... Gnarly Head stands up well to the spice each time. It's good to drink by itself too!
