Extremely rich in flavors it comforts your pallet and mind. Who doesn't love the rich taste of plums and vanilla with a hint of American oak. Incredible!
Earthy & Spicy
I have really enjoyed the wines from Gnarley Head, but this is my favorite from them so far.
Great Zin- nice balance of fruit and dryness with a sort of old world feel to it.
Big & Bold

First of all this is California cabernet sauvignon like. It has a nice clear color. This is a big, bold, and dry bottle of wine. On the nose, I get ripe black fruits, blackberries, a hint of strawberry, jammy flavor (which is Zin-like), a hint of vanilla. HOWEVER, the oak is all over the place! It is very oaky. On palate, i get something very much consistent with what I get on the nose. Nice black fruits, jammyness, there is also a hidden sense of pepper. Surprisingly, this wine is off balance! It has acidity that is not compatible with the character of this wine. It is too acidic and harsh to the point where you feel the acidity is at one place and the flavor and bouquet are at another place! The oak and acidity are off-balancing this wine. I gave it 2 stars taken into account that you pay $10 for it, which is acceptable, IMHO. I am 84 on this effort. I might consider buying it again. Happy drinking!
