“Bold, Sophisticated, with a hint of Gnarly”
Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel
This zinfandel is made from gnarled 35-80 year old head trained vines. Fruit from these unruly branches is intense and powerful, and as some of the oldest in California, these brash old vines produce exceptional, full flavored grapes.
Gnarly Head Merlot
Anything but classic, this wine shows off bold aromas of black currant, blackberry and notes of toasted oak, followed by juicy flavors of black cherry, ripe plum and sweet herbs with a hint of spice rounding out the finish.
Gnarly Head Cabernet Sauvignon
This Cabernet is King – big, gallant and powerful. This dark, bold wine has solid tannins and jammy fruit, with aromas of black cherry, blackberry, freshly-cracked black peppercorn, violet and charred notes.
“Not all Vines are Created Equal”
Noble Vines 337 Cabernet Sauvignon
337 Cabernet exhibits appealing aromas of black cherry, ripe currants, vanilla and lightly roasted coffee. Supple tannins and balanced acidity support core flavors of black cherry, blackberry, and cassis, intertwined with sweet herbs and black pepper spice accents.
Noble Vines 181 Merlot
181 is classic Bordeaux-style Merlot, elegantly opening with aromas of ripe cherry, blackberry, red currant and sweet herbs of clove and cardamom. Smooth tannins and balanced acidity support core flavors of black cherry, plum and baking spice.
Noble Vines 667 Pinot Noir
Noble Vines 667 Pinot Noir exhibits appealing aromas of black cherry, earth and a touch of vanilla. Plush tannins and balanced acidity support core flavors of ripe Bing cherry, bittersweet cocoa powder, and delicate hints of sage.
