Product Notes:
Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel is crafted from grapes from 35 to 80 year old vines. Rich, dark berry flavors from the small grape clusters are balanced with French, American and Hungarian oak. Luscious layers of plum, pepper and chocolate provide a lingering and spicy finish.

About Estate:
Lodi is the "zin-famous" appellation due to its ideal climate long, warm summer days and cooling night-time breezes and its soil rich, well-draining loam. These two factors provide a combination that is perfectly suited for growing Zinfandel. Our grapes are hand-selected from some of the oldest and most respected vineyards in Lodi. Older vines produce fewer grape clusters, but the small berries yield intense, concentrated fruit flavors characteristic of great Old Vine Zinfandel.

Food Pairing:
Zinfandel is an excellent wine to pair with a wide variety of meats (excluding poultry and seafood). The classic Zinfandel pairing is BBQ and Chili. Pizza, hamburgers, and hearty pasta dishes also work well.

About Varietal:
Zinfandel's fruit intensity and firm acidity enable the wine to pair brilliantly with a broad range of foods and dishes; from casual-rustic-nostalgic foods (pizza, ribs, sausage, meatloaf, hamburgers) to masterpieces of international cuisine (particularly those involving lamb, game, duck, and beef).

Recipe:
Steak with Mushroom Merlot Sauce Recipe

This steak recipe goes very well with merlot wine - Use some for the sauce, and the rest for your glass!
INGREDIENTS:
2 10oz ribeye steaks
2 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
3 Tbsp butter
6oz shiitake mushrooms
1 shallot
3/4 cup merlot
1 Tbsp thyme

First, salt and pepper steaks on both sides. Heat the vegetable oil to medium high, and then cook steaks for about 3 minutes per side.

Put the steaks on a plate but keep the oil in the pan. Put the butter in the pan, along with the wine, chopped up mushrooms and chopped up shallots and reduce for 5-10 minutes. Pour this sauce over the steaks and serve.
