Paler than the aroma and flavor indicates. Smells like amazing oaky buttery goodness. Flavor is incredibly intense, almost too intense. All the flavors the winemaker says may be in there, but to me it tastes like a slap-you-in-the-face chardonnay. Very yummy and very demanding on the palate.

Very toasty indeed with a nice creamy accent. To tell the truth, my first impression was that it was fake oak, but the winery claims 100% barrel-aged sur lie and batonage. It's just very oaky, but more in a good way than most super oaky chardannays, where the "oak chip" treatment is obvious. If you want a full-bodied chardonnay with a nice creamy flavor, then I recommend you give this a try.

    On sale for $10 at the local grocery wine bin. Not as overoaked as I remember Toasted Head, but lacking the kind of lovely fruit I look for in California chardonnay. Overall, cannot recommend at the usual price, but OK at $10.

    I thoroughly enjoy this Chardonnay. It has a wonderful flavor, nice full body and seems to hit the spot. This is a great wine to sip on a cold day. I am actually bundled inside for a hard freeze and this is the perfect wine for the occasion! I definitely think this wine is priced affordably for what you get and I absolutely love it! It's now on my fav list and will have it at on hand for sure. It just fills the mouth with wonderful rich flavors and you definitely won't be disappointed. Enjoy!

    Big and buttery with vanilla extract and nutmeg spice. Upfront, there is plenty of ripe pear and fruit salad. Not a subtle white, this Toasted Oak Chardonnay!

    Big, bold Chardonnay, 100% barrel fermented and aged on its lees, producing rich, tropical fruit flavors with notes of vanilla and butterscotch.

    Ripe, with a supple band of pineapple, toasted oak, citrus and pear flavors. Finishes soft but focused and refreshing. Drink now.

    Layers of tropical fruit, interwoven with toasty vanilla and butterscotch flavors.

    No, Toasted Head doesnrsquo;t mean that somebodyrsquo;s had too much of a good thing, it simply indicates that the Chardonnay has been kicked up a notch with the added influence of toasted oak characteristics.

    If you like big, fat Chardonnay, Toasted Head is for you. Layers of tropical fruit are interwoven with toasty vanilla and butterscotch flavors. A great match for sea bass with a fruit salsa or goat cheese stuffed chicken breasts.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    The nose offers ripe pineapple and peach aromas with toasted graham cracker. The bright straw color prepares the palate for the rich tropical fruit and luscious stone fruit with a viscous mouth feel accented by toasted coconut, vanilla and butterscotch. The creamy finish lingers with hints of buttered toast and lemon zest. This wine will pair well with creamy Italian pasta dishes, roasted chicken or fish, and fresh summer corn.
