|Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Toasted Head is named for the toasting of barrel heads that makes a wine taste...um...toasted. The fire-breathing bear on label was inspired by the William Carpenter poem Speaking Fire At Stones in which "Every one of these stones contains a bear. You just have to burn it free." The owners of Toasted Head winery have a gift for metaphor and read poetry--the Drink Wine and Giggle Gals are impressed. If it were a poem, Toasted Head Chardonnay would be a decent love sonnet that butters you up, but not too much. We'll definitely follow Darlene Myers' advice and sample the poetry of Toasted Head Cabernet Sauvignon.
