Toasted Head Shiraz 2006

Member Review by lamarr:

1. 2006 Toasted Head Shiraz Dunnigan Hills/Woodbridge, CA (13.5%) – Color: medium ruby, Nose: fruity, a bit of oak, raspberry, Taste: needs to decant a bit, will let you know then…oaky, raspberry, cherry, a little chocolate, medium tannins, light pepper finish, light to medium finish Lamarr: B (decent, but a weak finish, not a ton of flavors, was a little rough upon decanting, smoothing, but then losing flavors too quickly, feel like I’m drinking water at this point) Hector: B (no definitive flavoring on the finish, weak) Alastor: n/a (incomplete) Wanda: B+ (fruity start, peppery finish)
