Mocha-coffee goodness wraps around black fruit and smoke aromas. Full-bodied and smooth with a nice grip. Decant for a 1 hour. 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.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: barbecued gourmet sausages, avocado and papaya salad, Asian chicken salad, autumn hodge-podge, pork tenderloin.

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

You might think this 2011 Toasted Head Cabernet from California might taste young, but you'd be mistaken. No surprise with aromas and flavors of toasted oak, after all it's how they got the name. But there are also rich aromas and flavors of dark fruit, smoke, and some spice. This wine can tackle beef or a nice juicy steak done on the grill
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. Source: Winery
