    Winemaker Notes

    Gnarly Head 2015 Pinot Noir takes "the heartbreak grape" for a walk on the wild side. This powerful Pinot touts voluptuous aromas of ripe plum, cherry preserves, toasted hazelnuts and spice followed by a rich flavor combination of strawberry, pomegranate and black cherry with mild hints of oak on the palate. Elegant tannins, bright fruit and balanced acidity make this wine a perfect pair for salami and arugula pizza, slow roasted pork loin or dry-brined chicken stuffed with sausage and peppers.

    My first impression, as the truck pulled up to the eighty year old Zinfandel vineyards, was, "Wow, those vines sure have some gnarly heads!" Thus began a fifteen year love affair with the Old Vine Zinfandel.

    The older Zin vineyards in California were planted before the use of modern trellising techniques and were "head pruned", meaning the shoots that eventually produce the grapes grow directly out of the head of the trunk. The resulting vines look more like a bush than the normally well-manicured rows of neatly trained along posts and wires – and they do have "Gnarly Heads".

    Internationally recognized for gorgeous, pure fruit combined with great elegance, California Pinot noir thrives among the state’s cooler, coastal zones. Characterized by eclectic flavors and aromas of strawberry, black cherry, plum and potpourri with notes of forest floor, mushroom or black tea, the best California Pinot noir boast a supple texture and good acidity, giving them the ability to improve with age.

    Credited with the beginning of Pinot noir’s glory in California, two growers, Joe Rochioli and Joseph Swan in the late 1960s independently planted Pinot noir vineyards in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. Today Sonoma County remains the leading producer of Pinot noir in the state, and Pinot noir is the leading red grape in the county, achieving its highest potential, in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast.

    Other coastal appellations where Pinot noir flourishes include Carneros, Anderson Valley and most of the Central Coast.
