Description
This wine is loaded with toasty oak character - hence, 'Toasted Head' - taken from the toasted barrels in which it's matured. But not all of the smoky character is from ageing. The vines are grown in volcanic hillside soils that impart flinty smoke of their own. This is always a dark, dense wine with rich smoke and tobacco atop the ripe fruit tones. There is nothing complicated here; this perennially and reliably delivers smooth, toasty dark fruit and pairs well with grilled meats.
Tasting Notes
Mocha-coffee goodness wraps around black fruit and smoke aromas. Full-bodied and smooth with a nice grip. Decant for a 1 hour. The name Toasted Head derives from toasting of the top and bottom wooden circles of the oak barrel (by fire) to yield a toastier taste than just toasting the barrel sides or staves. This wine is usually aged for 18-20 months in French and American oak. There's a great grip (and growl) in this robust, chest-beating red for wild game. Pair with: barbecued gourmet sausages, avocado and papaya salad, Asian chicken salad, autumn hodge-podge, pork tenderloin. Drink: 2013-2016. Score - 91.
