  • Toasted Head Untamed Red 2008


    Wonderful nose for a $10 wine. Taste is not as good as the nose ... not too subtle hints of vanilla taffy. Would be a great wine by the glass at a restaurant, but a whole bottle of all this vanilla is a bit much for me. Read More

  • Toasted Head Merlot 2007


    I really like this. It is spicy and earthy and not too fruit forward. There is a little bit of dark fruit, blackberry, black cherry. But lots of unique wood, cedar maybe juniper. A nice touch of vanilla. Wonderful, warm, spicy, smooth. Complex enough to make it interesting.Will buy again. Read More

When others talk about being buttery they mean the content of Glycerin that causes this to give the wine an somehow oily character. overall given the low sales price at Costco ($8)... Read More

  • Toasted Head Chardonnay United States California Napa County Napa Valley White 2008


    I am not really a white wine lover, but I was in the mood for something lighter than a red. Something crisp and refreshing. I really like Wente Morning Fog, but decided to try the Toasted Head Chardonnay because I like their Untamed Red so much. Honestly, I should have bought the Wente. It's a bit sweeter and buttery and tropical. The nose on th... Read More
